      For cooking (simmering) at temperatures of 95°C or above (200°F), the simmering basket should always be used instead of the TM6 measuring cup, as the TM6 measuring cup fits tightly in the lid. The simmering basket rests loosely on top, is steam-permeable, and also prevents food spatter from the mixing bowl.

Tip

The sauce on its own is a fabulous base for any protein. Chicken would work just as well, but would need 2 x 10 minutes in the oven.

Serve Sweet and Sour Pork with rice on the side. Decorate with sliced spring onion.
Add snow peas, baby corn, bamboo shoots in the last 2 minutes of cooking.
If the meat is a tougher cut, such as shoulder, velvet it first. Add 1 tsp bi-carb soda to the meat cubes. Leave for an hour, rinse and dry.

    Made this again last night. It's so good! I could only get thinly sliced pork steaks, so I cut them into strips. Worked just as well, though only needed 2 x 10 minutes in the oven.
