Sweet And Sour Pork Recipe
You won't believe how easy this no fry sweet and sour pork recipe is.
- 1 lb pork chop cubed, or shoulder
- 2 tbsp cornstarch
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 3 tbsp ketchup
- 2 tbsp vinegar rice vinegar preferred
- 1 tbsp soy sauce light soy sauce preferred
- 1 bell pepper roughly chopped
- 1/2 onion roughly chopped
Preheat your oven to 450ºF and season your pork with salt and pepper.
Transfer your pork to a plastic bag or ziploc bag along with 1 tablespoon of cornstarch. Shake well until the pork is lightly coated and then place on an oiled tray in a foil lined baking sheet.
Bake your pork for 40 minutes, flipping once after 20 minutes.
While the pork is baking, make your sauce: add the remaining 1 tablespoon of cornstarch to 1 tablespoon of water in a cup and stir until a smooth slurry forms.
Finish making your sauce by adding sugar, ketchup, vinegar, soy sauce, corn starch slurry, and 1/4 cup of water to a pan and bringing it to a boil. Once boiling, turn the heat to low and add your vegetables. Cook until your desired doneness and then remove from heat (for us that means almost raw).
Add your pork to the sauce and toss until well coated. Enjoy!
To airfry: Coat the pork with cornstarch, then place into the air fryer basket with at least 1/4" gap between pieces, in a single layer. Set the air fryer to 375ºF for 8 minutes, then toss in sauce as directed.
