Sweet and sour pork is one of those Chinese dishes that many of us Zimbabweans quickly got accustomed to.  In fact, when my husband and I were still dating, this was one of the dishes we’d order when we went to a Chinese take out. It’s quite easy to prepare and is usually accompanied by sweet and sour sauce.

Quick Instructions

  1. Cut pork into fairly sized cubes. Add  3/4 of the garlic and ginger, then add salt and ground black pepper. Add olive oil and mix well. Refrigerate in an airtight container for 48 hours.
  2. After 48 hours, add soy sauce, mix and refrigerate for another 2 hours. After 2 hours, coat each pork cube in cornflour.
  3. Heat oil in pan, add coated pork cubes to the heated oil and brown the pork. When pork is done, set aside and begin to prepare your sweet and sour sauce.
  4. When your sauce is ready, cut your red, green and yellow peppers into julienne strips and dice your onion. Heat oil in pan, add garlic, onion and green pepper.
  5. Add red pepper, yellow pepper and stir. Reduce heat then add the sweet and sour sauce.
  6. Finally, fold in your set aside browned and crispy pork cubes, stir,  cover pan and let simmer for 3 mins. Your pork’s ready. Bon Appetite!
