Sweet and Sour Pork (1)

 
 
Sweet and Sour Pork
 
 
 
 
I usually cooked sweet and sour pork with chilli sauce and tomato sauce.  However, I ran out of tomato sauce and had to look for alternatives.  I remembered a page from my old cookbook.  One of the recipe was sweet and sour pork using vinegar and sugar. 
 
Ingredients 
1)  Pork tenderloin 225 g (sliced thinly)
2)  1/2 cucumber (cubed)
3)  1 slice of pineapple (cubed)
4)  1/2 onion (sliced)
5)  3/4 Tablespoon soy sauce
6)  1/2 egg
7)  3 Tablespoon cornstarch
8)  sesame oil and pepper (as desired)
 
Sauce
1)  3 Tablespoon soy sauce, vinegar, sugar each
2)  1/2 cup water
3)  1/2 Tablespoon cornstarch
4)  1 teaspoon sesame oil
 
 
Method
1)  Tenderized the slice pork loin.  Mix well with soy sauce, egg, cornstarch, sesame oil and pepper.
2)  Deep fried pork loin for about 3 minutes.
3)  Remove pork loin.
4)  Heat 2 Tablespoon oil and add sauce, cucumbers, onions and pineapples.  Stir brefly and bring it to boil.  Add fried pork loin and stir well.

How to tenderize pork loin?
 
I usually tenderize pork with a meat mallet or a knife.  It is one of the best ways to break up tough muscle fibers.
