    Submitted by Ponts85 on 14. October 2019 - 20:49.

    This was delish! Few amendments. I dusted pork in flour & pan fried then just added to sauce mixture in the thermo server.
    I only had a 225g tin of pineapple pieces & this was plenty enough still. Dropped sugar to 80g (also didnt bother milling it). Used whatever veg I had in the fridge.
    Very tasty!!

    This is delicious, the family loved it! I didn’t bother battering the pork, just cooked it in the sauce for 10mins at varoma, the scotch fillet turns out SO tender. You could easily double the pork as there is loads of sauce. Thankyou!

    So pleased with the results! Started to battered and deep fry the pork, but ended up coating in flour and almost stir frying it. Just beautiful and our visitors came back for seconds. Thanks for sharing.

    I used 700g of diced pork fillet which I floured and pan fried. I think 1kg would have been better as the recipe did make a lot of sauce. Though I added a sliced zucchini which I had left over in the fridge as well. Very nice. Thank you

    This was delicious, thanks for creating it. I doubled the recipe (1 kg meat) and just pan fried the pork, didn't bother with the batter and deep frying. Had heaps of sauce left over (in hindsight maybe would have been enough sauce for 1 kg meat. Easily enough sauce left over for another batch. Might try chicken next.

    Really happy with how this turned out. I have never made sweet and sour sauce before. I’m going to make a couple of batches and freeze for quick stir fry dinners. I didn’t coat my pork, just used stir fry strips. Thanks for a great recipe. Smile

    This was delicious! To save time I ended up mixing the batter quickly by hand in a bowl and i steamed my rice on the stove while the veg and sauce was cooking.I pan fried the pork and then assembled the dish, was really yummy and will be putting this on rotation on our meal plan! something I never wouldve bothered cooking before so thankyou! tmrc_emoticons.-)

    A little fiddly but well worth making for dinner. I used fresh pineapple and added a little bit of fruit juice to the water to make the sauce. I also served it with noodles rather than rice!

    I’m very pleased that you liked it, please try the SWEET & SOUR CHICKEN and don’t forget to try the SWEET & SOUR PRAWNS.

    I made the sauce to be versatile.

    You don't need to coat the meat in batter if you like it that way. 

    You can double the amout and freeze it.

  • Really yummy recipe! I too

    Submitted by Sarah.Nicholson2 on 2. June 2015 - 21:18.

    Really yummy recipe! I too made the mistake of using speed 5 after the step "Stir in the Sugar, Vinegar, Soy Sauce and 1 cup (250ml) water until Sugar dissolves. Combine the Cornflour and 2 tablespoons Water" and I ended up puree'ing my veggies. I chucked this out and tried again using speed 0.5 and the recipe turned out great! I pan fried the pork and added it to the sauce and it was delicious! Will definitely make again!

    Hi phallett

    I think you missed a step, cleaning the bowl.

    Set aside

    Clean bowel

    Combine the cornflour, plain flour, salt, eggs and 2 tablespoons water 20-40 Sec on 5.

  • Nice recipe. When combining

    Submitted by phallett on 26. May 2015 - 19:17.

    Nice recipe. When combining  the cornflour & water to the sauce I wouldn't  use speed 5 otherwise youll end up with purée veg. I used Speed 0.5.  Next ttime I would probably remove the MC to reduce the sauce a bit. I found it a bit too runny. Overall a nice recipe & I would make it again. Thank you.

    Very yummy!!! I cooked my rice first and streamed the pork at the same time instead of having the pork battered then put the pork in the sauce on the last step. Thanks for the recipe, i will be making this again tmrc_emoticons.)

    This was delicious! I didn't coat the pork with flour and pan fried the pork, adding sauce to it afterwards. the sauce was runny as a result but I just kept reducing it. Very nice. Thanks for sharing

    Submitted by osram on 2. February 2015 - 18:11.

    The simple answer is, you don't.

    You only require only the Pineapple pices.

    If you wish you could use a fresh Pineapple.
