We found that if we coat our raw pork with cornstarch instead of flour, it makes for a crispier coating. That's just another one of those little tips that restaurant chefs don't usually share!
What You'll Need
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
- 2 to 2-1/2 pounds boneless sirloin pork loin roast, cut into bite-sized pieces
- 2 green bell peppers, cut into 1/2-inch strips
- 1 (8-ounce) can pineapple chunks, undrained
- 1 cup sweet-and-sour sauce
What to Do
Heat oil in a large skillet over high heat.
Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine cornstarch, salt, and ground red pepper; mix well. Add pork and toss to coat.
Add pork to skillet and saute 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden brown and no pink remains.
- Add bell peppers, pineapple chunks, and sweet-and-sour sauce; cook 5 to 7 minutes, or until peppers are crisp-tender and sauce is hot. Serve immediately.
This looks great topping a large plate piled high with steaming white rice and garnished with maraschino cherries.
