Sweet and Sour Pork

Connie "Kiyu" Guerrero


One of our local favorites. Using the same ingredients, you can do the same steps on Shrimps or chicken breast cut into cubes. This dish is great over rice.

Then, dip each marinated pork cube into the egg wash, then dip into the dry flour/cornstarch mix and coat very well. Continue with the rest of the pork cubes. and set aside on a platter. Let set for 5 minutes.
