Sweet & Sour Pork by Angela Seah Thulin

All time favorite ~ Sweet & Sour Pork! You got to try it!
Ingredients -

Part A

500g of Pork collar, cut into cubes
1/2 tsp bicarbonate soda

Part B (marination for 2 hours)
1 egg
1/2 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tsp salt
Some pepper
1/2 tbsp light soya sauce
1/2 tsp sugar
1 tsp Hua diao jiu (chinese wine)
1 tsp potato flour
1/2 tsp sesame oil

Part C (sauce)
5 tbsp tomato sauce
1 tbsp chilli sauce
1 tbsp Lea & Perrins (Worcestershire sauce)
1 tbsp plum sauce
2 tsp oyster sauce
8 tbsp water
1/2 tsp rice vinegar
1/2 tsp sugar

Part D - condiments, cut in cubes 
Paprika/capsicum of any colors that you prefer

Steps -
1) Do Part A first - give the meat a slight pound n cut into cubes. Then with the soda n water to marinate for 15 mins n drained (wash off the soda).
2) Then marinate the meat with Part B for at least 30mins. I do it overnight.
3) Prepare your Part C in a medium size bowl, adjust rice vinegar or sugar as you preferred. I didn't.
4) Prepare Part D by cutting them up into cubes
5) In a big bowl, add flour (tapioca flour, potato flour) in n coat the meat with flour as thick as possible.
6) Deep fried the pork or twice to achieve more crispness. Drain and set aside.
7) In the same wok using 1 tbsp oil, give the Part D a quick fry. Then add in the Part C & bring to a boil. Add starch to make the sauce alittle more thick. I didn't. I let it cook till thick. Done.
8) Mix the sauce and pork together only when you are ready to serve.

Notes -
*For more crispy crust - use rice flour and tapioca flour 1:2 ratio.
*I tried on sweet potato starch flour - was good too.
