This “Real Chinese Taste” Sweet and Sour Pork was a free recipe handed out by Amoy Genuine Chinese Food sometime in the 70s. No mention is made of cooking it in a wok as I doubt that any non-Asian cooks had one or in fact even knew what one was. Guess Amoy thought they’d better just stick with a frying pan.
I think this was one of the first dinner party dishes I made after I got married. It was quite modern then with the wine, garlic, oregano and peppers and tasted great. I’m not sure where I got the recipe from, but I can see from the typing that I typed it up on a manual typewriter, probably at work, and here I am posting it on the internet – how the world has changed!!!! It served me well all those years ago, but I haven’t made it for awhile. Perhaps it’s time to give it another go.
