Thai Sweet-and-sour Pork
Sweet and sour is traditionally a Chinese creation but the Thais do it very well. This version has an altogether fresher and cleaner flavor and it makes a good one-dish meal when served over rice.
- 12 oz lean pork
- 2 tbsp vegetable oil
- 4 garlic cloves finely sliced
- 1 small red onion sliced
- 2 tbsp fish sauce
- 1 tbsp granulated sugar
- 1 red pepper seeded and diced
- 1/2 cucumber seeded and sliced
- 2 plum tomatoes cut into wedges
- 4 oz pineapple cut into small chunks
- freshly ground black pepper
- 2 spring onions cut into short lengths
- coriander leaves to garnish
- spring onions shredded, to garnish
- Slice the pork into thin strips. Heat the oil in a wok or large frying pan.
- Add the garlic and fry until golden, then add the pork and stir-fry for about 4 - 5 minutes. Add the onion.
- Season with fish sauce, sugar and freshly ground black pepper. Stir and cook for 3 - 4 minutes, or until the pork is cooked.
- Add the rest of the vegetables, the pineapple and spring onions. You may need to add a few tablespoons of water. Continue to stir-fry for another 3 - 4 minutes. Serve hot garnished with coriander leaves and spring onion.
