Easy Sweet & Sour Pork Stir Fry(-ish) for 2 instructions
- In a medium bowl, combine pork with starch, 1 clove garlic (chopped), and 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, and toss to thoroughly combine and coat..
- In a small bowl, put all sauce ingredients together and stir to combine..
- In a preheated slightly higher than medium high wok or saute pan, stir fry the vegetables excluding the pineapple in about 1 teaspoon oil until the onions just begin to turn translucent. No more than 1 to 1.5 minutes – you don't want the veg to turn soggy. Set aside..
- Turn the heat down to medium high, add 2 Tablespoons oil, and cook the pork, spreading it in a single layer with as much space between the pieces as possible. Because they're 1-inch pieces, you're not exactly going to stir fry, but rather fry them, letting them cook undisturbed on one side for 3 to 3.5 minutes or so until they get a brown crust, and then turning to flip them and letting them cook undisturbed on the opposite side for another 3 to 3.5 minutes until it also gets a brown crust..
- Turn the heat up to high, add the sauce mixture, and stir thoroughly two or three times, then leave undisturbed for 20 to 30 seconds while the sauce starts to boil. The potato starch used to coat the meat will help create a nice, light, and not goopy sauce..
- After the sauce has been boiling for about 20 seconds, toss in the veg and pineapple, let the sauce come to a boil again for another 20 seconds or so, and there you have it!.
- Enjoy! :).
