Sweet and Sour Chicken/Pork Hong Kong Style

Make the sauce in a medium saucepan by combining, 1 Tbsp tomato puree, 1 Tbsp tomato ketchup, 240ml orange juice, 3 Tbsp white wine vinegar and 2 Tbsp sugar. Add a roughly chopped onion and red/orange pepper. Heat up and simmer for about 5 minutes. Thicken the sauce by stirring in a couple of tablespoons of cornflour/water mixture.

For your meat of choice, cut into bite size cubes, cover with whisked egg and then transfer each to a bowl of cornflour to coat. Place into hot fat until done – this will be dependent on meat type and cube size. 2cm pork will be around 4/5 minutes. Chicken a bit less.

Combine just before serving so that the crunch is not lost.
