Sweet & Sour Pork
- Strips of good quality pork
- Cider vinegar
- Star anise – about one ‘head’ for each two portions. An alternative is crushed fennel seeds.
- Fresh chilli
- Maybe garlic – can’t remember what I did
- Toasted sesame oil
Marinade the pork with everything except the oil for at least a couple of hours. Then lift out the pork pieces and fry them in the sesame oil. After they are nicely browned add the marinade into the pan along with the meat and reduce it down until there is a nice rich sauce.
