Sweet and Sour Pork

Sweet and Sour Pork

500g Pork Tenderloin 
1 egg, beaten
1 Red Capsicum, diced 
1 Yellow Capsicum, diced 
1 Onion, diced 
1 cup Pineapple
1 tablespoon Spring Onion, finely chopped
1 teaspoon white sesame seeds, for garnish
¼ cup ketchup
¼ cup Chicken Broth
2 tablespoon white vinegar or apple cider vinegar

From your pantry :
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
¾ teaspoon salt 
1 tablespoon Shaoxing wine (optional)
2 tablespoon soy sauce or oyster sauce
1 tablespoon sugar or honey
¼ cup cornstarch or all-purpose flour

1. In a large mixing bowl, add diced pork, ½ teaspoon salt and Shaoxing wine, soy sauce and egg. Stir well and ensure even marinade coating. Let the marinated pork rest for 5 minutes to soak the flavour.
2. Prepare a bowl with ¼ cornstarch and dip the marinated pork to coat evenly on all sides.
3. Preheat oil (at least 2 inches deep) in a cooking pot over a medium-high heat. 4. Deep fry the pork until golden brown. Drain excess oil on a paper towel.
Healthier option - cook the pork at 180 degrees in the air fryer for 10-12 minutes until golden brown.
5. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together ketchup, 1 tablespoon soy sauce, chicken broth, sugar, white vinegar, ½ tablespoon cornstarch and ¼ teaspoon salt until smooth.
6. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until oil sizzles. Add capsicums, onion and pineapple for saute for a minute.
7. Add the sauce mixture and let it simmer over medium heat for 3-4 minutes until thickened to desired consistency. Stir constantly.
8. Add in the pork and coat the sauce evenly.
Garnish with sesame seeds and spring onions. Best served with a bowl of white steamed rice or fried rice.
