Scrumptious Sweet and Sour Pork

*Seriously* this is so delicious. And one of Tony’s favorite recipes. If I can make this, so can you. All you have to do is grab this bottle of Kikkoman Sweet and Sour Sauce and conveinently enough the directions are on the bottle!  For any other tips you can read the rest..

What you need:
  • 1 lb. Boneless Pork
  • Sweet and Sour Sauce
  • Corn Starch
  • Bell Pepper
  • White Onion
  • Carrots (we don’t use IN the dish)
  • Pineapple chunks
  • Soy Sauce (optional: I’d recommend it if you have it)
Once your meat us cut, fill two bowls with both corn starch and one with about a 1/5 cup of soy sauce (I didn’t have any this last time and just used water, and it worked fine). Dip the meat in the soy sauce then roll in the corn starch to coat generously and completely. You can set aside until you are done with all of them or you can throw them into your skillet one by one. Brown slowly in 2 Tbsp hot oil in skillet. Add 1/4 cup water; simmer, covered 15-20 minutes, stirring twice. (This step is IMPORTANT- the corn starch will puff up during this stage)
Cut your veggies and stir into skillet with 1 cup sweet and sour sauce (I just eyeball it till everything is coated); simmer, covered 10 minutes, stirring frequently.
Add 1 cup pineapple chunks; heat through.

Serve with white rice and garnish with fresh carrots and an ice cold cherry 7-up. Perfect.
