Mild Sweet and Sour Pork

29 Aug

ooooh, I have been waiting to make this meal for a while now, and yes yes it was worth the wait, delicious! So am trying, yes trying to cut down on the fatty side of pork, because am gaining a little bit of weight. Honestly, I’ve never understood what benefit or lack of, pork has to the human body. I just know it smells divine on a frying pan. So anyone out there who wishes to educate me, please do feel free.

Sweet and sour has always been two of my favorite words in one sentence, something that has a bit of hot and sweet to balance off your palates, now what more could one ask for! Since the first time I tasted sweet and sour sauce, I was sold out, sadly though no other sauce with the same name has ever matched that first love encounter. Umh I think it was at the Intercontinental, someone give me that recipe, pleeeeeaaaaaassssssssseeeeeeee!

Anyway to serious business, found this recipe and had to try it out. This time round, I was good at taking pictures so basically you’ll see the steps or outcome of steps (no didn’t take detailed ingredient pictures, working on that though 🙂 )

Sweet and Sour Pork Tenderloin (no fat) Ingredients:
For the sauce:
1/3 cup ketchup
1/3 cup seasoned rice vinegar ( I used regular white vinegar, just a bit)
fresh pineapple juice ( buy a fresh one and squeeze out juice, about 1/2 a cup)
1 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar
4 cloves minced garlic
1/4 teaspoons Wapambe hot chili sauce (Call me for this sauce, very hooooooooooooooot)
1 teaspoon soy sauce
Mix all the above ingredients into a bowl, except the water/chicken broth

Sauce

For the pork:
500gms pork tenderloin, trimmed, cut, flattened with meat tenderizer
salt and black pepper
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 teaspoon butter
1 cup pineapple chunks
1/4 cup water or chicken broth to thin sauce

Steps

Tenderize the pork and season with salt and pepper

Heat pan on high, add oil and once ready place your pork and reduce heat to medium high sear pork for about 5 min on both sides

Add the sauce and stir for another 3-4 mins, then add in chilli flakes or powder and the garlic paste and let it simmer for about 6 min, adding a bit of water or chicken broth so that the sauce doesn’t thicken too much. Once ready add in your pork

Once you are happy with your cooked pork turn off the heat and serve with your choice of side dish, rice, fries, mashed or roast potatoes etc. I served mine with creamy creamy yummy spinach and mashed potatoes, delicious!

Delicious Pork

Enjoy!
