Nate’s favorite dish of all time has gotta be sweet & sour pork. It is his default order whenever we eat at Tien Ma’s and all other Chinese eating places. He can finish one order that is usually good for 2 or 3 persons to share. So, of course, I need to perfect my sweet & sour pork recipe, para naman hindi nakakahiya sa anak ko. Hehe.
The most important ingredient in a good sweet & sour pork recipe is the pork, siyempre. It has to be tender, well seasoned, and not overcooked. I use porkloin and buy it from the meat shop already cut into steaks or chops. I then slice the chops into 3 x 1 inch strips.
