Sweet & Sour Pork Chop

My children like pork chops cooked in this way and to date, I have tried with different ingredients for the sauce, but every time, they never failed to polish up the whole dish. This is no exception. I only ate a small portion because my appetite has not been in top form lately, but the two finished up every bit of it as well as the soup and stir-fry vegetables for dinner.

Sweet & Sour Pork Chop

350g Pork Chops, cut into slices of 3/4" thick
1/2 onion, sliced
1/2 green capsicum, sliced
some pineapple cubes

1 tsp light soy sauce
1/4 tsp dark soy sauce
1/2 egg
1 tbsp potato starch
a dash of black pepper

3 tbsp tomato sauce
1 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1-1/2 tbsp sugar
1/2 tbsp vinegar
1/4 tsp salt or to taste
1/2 cup water

some potato starch with water


Tenderise pork with millet or back of a cleaver.

Marinate pork for about an hour.

Deep-fry the pork with hot oil till golden brown. Drain and set aside. When slightly cooled, cut into bite size.

Heat wok with 1–2 tablespoons oil and sauté onion till softened. Add capsicum and pour in the sauce ingredients. Bring to boil.

Return pork chop pieces to the wok and add pineapple. Thicken sauce with potato starch mixture (optional).

Cook for a while before dishing out to serve.
