Sweet & Sour Pork

Saturday, January 23, 2010




I had tried cooking sweet and sour pork before, but the results always disappoint me. The pork were stiff and dry compared to what i had eaten outside, and i couldn’t understand why. Haha, it was only until when i read from a chinese cuisine cookbook that i came to know that this dish requires a different kind of pork meat, or i should say, different part of the pork.

Hehe, now that i learned my lesson, the problem was quickly rectify. I really have to give thanks to the local supermarket that supply the frozen section of the pork which i needed. It was ridiculously easy, they had already marked out the required section meant for cooking sweet and sour pork. IT WAS PRINTED ON THE WRAPPER !  Yeah!!

I just have to defreeze and cook as i have before, and yummy, the taste and texture was what i wanted for all this while. Hip, Hip, Horray!!
