Sweet and sour pork is a classic Chinese recipe that nearly everyone knows about. What not many people know, though, is that this dish is actually quite low in calories and can help you lose weight! The sweet and sour pork recipe I’ll show you below is a special low-calorie version that I developed, while still keeping its original flavor intact. Hope you enjoy it!
Sweet and Sour Pork recipe
- 1 pound pork tenderloin, cut into bite-size chunks
- 1 tablespoon rice wine
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 beaten egg white
- 2 teaspoons flour
- Cooking oil
- Any or all of the following, cut into pieces: bell pepper, onion, pineapple
- 2 tablespoons ketchup
Marinate the pork in the wine and soy sauce for 20 minutes. In a bowl, mix the egg white and flour with a little bit of oil and water to make a thick batter. Dip the pork in and coat it well with the batter. In a separate bowl, mix the ketchup with some water to dilute it slightly. In a wok, add enough oil for deep-frying and heat it until it smokes slightly. Add the pork and deep-fry until light golden brown. Remove and drain off excess oil on paper towels. Discard the oil from the wok and heat it up again with 1 tablespoon oil. Add the bell peppers, onion, and/or pineapple and stir-fry until the aroma comes out. Add the pork and ketchup sauce and stir-fry for another minute or two. Adjust the taste if desired, and serve.
