Thai Sweet and Sour Pork

READY IN: 22mins
Recipe by Brian Holley

This is very different from the usual Chinese dish. There is not too much sugar and no vinegar, having said that it is still a very good, colourful and simple to cook dish.

Very good sweet and sour considering there is no vinegar. We enjoyed it and I will make it again. Perhaps with more fish sauce. I used a yellow sweet pepper and a small jalepeno pepper. Loved the fact that I could eat a pork dish with so little fat and low carb too. and on top of that lots of flavour! thanks for posting.
