Sweet and Sour Pork

They are then deep-fried until they become crispy. The second step is to make the sweet and sour sauce which is basically made by combing catsup, sugar and soy sauce. Vegetables such as green pepper, pineapple and carrots are also added to make this dish unique and flavorful. The meat is then stir fried together with the sauce and the rest of the vegetables.
The combination of the sweetness and the little sourness makes this an unforgettable dish. You can adjust the flavors to suit your preference, whether you like it a little on the sweet side or on the sour side.
