Sweet and Sour Pork

Ingredients:

600g pork loin cut into 1-2 inch cubes
60g cornflour
60ml vegetable oil
Sauce:
60g caster sugar
3-4 tablespoons ketchup
60ml white wine vinegar
60ml apple cider vinegar
80 ml good quality pineapple juice
2 tablespoons light soy sauce
2cloves of garlic chopped or minced
1 inch stem of ginger finly chopped
1 tablespoon cornflour
Garnish:
Sliced green onions
Sesame seeds

Method:

In a large bowl, toss the pork pieces with the corn flour, well, so every piece is covered. Set aside.
Add all the "Sauce" ingredients to a bowl and whisk together to combine. Set aside.
Add the vegetable oil to a large pan over medium-high heat.
Once the oil is hot, add the pork and fry on medium-high heat until crispy and golden. Toss the pieces to make sure you cook them evenly. Cook until golden and crispy, about 7-10 minutes.
Drain excess oil from pan.
Give the sauce a quick stir, as some ingredients are on the bottom of the bowl, and add it to the pan.
Stir to coat well the pork for about 30 seconds to 1 minute, until sauce has thickened.
If the sauce is not as thick as you want, mix separately 1 tablespoon of corn flour with 2 tablespoons of water and add it to the pan.
Wait for the sauce to start to boil, after that remove the pan from heat.
Garnish with green onions and sesame seeds.
Serve immediately with rice or over a nice baked potato!
