Let’s Cook! (Sweet and Sour Pork Edition)

**Before I get into this, I just wanted to note that a lot of my comments are doing that vanish thing once I hit send. So if you could check your spam comments and free me that would be so neat!! I don’t know why WordPress hates me sometimes ? If you don’t know how to check it, just type in your blog address followed by /wp-admin and then go to comments.**

Another cooking post! You can find the original recipe for the sauce here.

Sweet and Sour is one of my favourite dishes, I’ve loved it forever! One evening, we wanted Sweet and Sour, but then we realized we hadn’t bought any sauce. So we looked online, and found a sauce recipe. We tried it, and it was so tangy and delicious! So we thought we’d share it.

So in general for sweet and sour pork, you need pork, rice, pineapples (we use canned), capsicum and whatever other veggies you want.

So first off, cook some rice, whichever way works for you. We use a rice cooker cause it’s so much more convenient.


Cut the veggies. Open the pineapples and pour out the juice.

For the sauce, I’m gonna get specific as we followed a recipe.

  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 2/3 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/3 cup rice vinegar (we used cider vinegar)
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp ketchup
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce


In a small bowl, mix the cornstarch and water. Set this aside.

In a saucepan, combine the pineapple juice, vinegar, sugar, ketchup and soy sauce. Bring to a boil over medium heat.

Stir in the cornstarch and cook until it thickens. Remove from heat, and it’s ready to be poured.


Now you got the sauce, cook the meat.


Brown the pork, then add the fruit and veggies.

Once everything is cooked, you can serve it all together!


We do love this meal, and we’ve bookmarked this again for future use. It’s really fun to make your own sauce, rather than buying them 🙂
