Give in to the irresistible comfort food of golden-crusted tender pork fillet cubes, generously dipped in your preferred sweet & sour sauce! Our Sweet & Sour Pork is the ideal weekend indulgence. Enhance this delightful main course with stir-fried vegetables and fluffy rice for an infinitely satisfying meal.
Complement your dining experience with The Yellowwood Organic White. Sourced from organically grown grapes, this wine blooms with white peach, pear, and litchi scents. Subtle hints of spice and citrus fruit intertwine with the primary aromas, leading to a refreshingly crisp finish. Its fruit-driven profile and spicy undertones harmonise impeccably with the tangy and savoury tones of the dish.
Ingredients: (serves 4)
300-400 g pork fillet, diced (2 x 2 cm cubes)
30 ml (3 T) soy sauce
200 g (2 ½ cups) self-raising flour
250 ml water (plus extra, if needed)
5 ml (1 t) salt
5 ml (1 t) vegetable oil
vegetable oil, for deep frying
your favourite sweet and sour sauce for serving
Place the diced pork in a medium mixing bowl, then add the soy sauce and stir to coat all over. Cover and leave to marinate in the fridge.
Add the flour, water, salt, and oil in a separate mixing bowl and stir until smooth. Cover and refrigerate until ready to cook (can be done a few hours in advance).
Heat enough oil in a medium size pot for deep frying (about 4-5 cm deep). Test a drop of batter in the oil - if it sizzles moderately, it is ready (you’re looking for about 180 C).
Using small tongs or clean hands, drop a few cubes of marinated pork at a time into the batter, coating it on all sides, then place them one by one into the hot oil, not overcrowding the pot. Fry until golden. Turn the balls over if necessary, remove them with a slotted spoon, and drain them on kitchen paper.
Serve hot with sweet and sour sauce on the side. Note: These nuggets won’t keep their crunch forever, so they are best served straight after preparation.
