Sweet and Sour Pork

READY IN: 27mins




  • Season the pork with a pinch of salt and a pinch of pepper then mix well.
  • Cut the onion in half then slice it thinly.
  • Remove the head part and seeds of the Japanese peppers then slice it into cubes.
  • For the shiitake, separate the head from the stem then slice each part thinly.
  • In a small bowl, combine the ingredients for the sweet and sour sauce which are: 2 tablespoons of tomato ketchup, 2 tablespoons of water, a tablespoon of vinegar, a tablespoon of soy sauce, half a tablespoon of sugar, a teaspoon of sesame oil and half a teaspoon of chicken stock powder. Mix the ingredients well until well combined.
  • In a bowl, combine the pork, vegetables and the sweet and sour sauce then mix well. I’ve also added about 30 grams of sliced bamboo shoots.
  • Cover or use a microwave-safe cling wrap to cover the bowl. Cook in the microwave for 6 minutes using 600W.
  • Remove the bowl after 6 minutes then mix well. Dissolve half a tablespoon of cornstarch with a tablespoon of water then pour over the pork. Mix all the ingredients well.
  • Put back the cover or cling wrap then further cook in the microwave for 1 minute and 30 seconds using 600W.
  • Remove from the microwave then mix. Transfer to a serving plate then you cans serve.
