I am a HUGE fan of Chinese food. Now, I don’t know if this actually qualifies as Chinese food, but it’s my attempt at an interpretation of a version of something that I absolutely love and craved like crazy when I was pregnant!
Have you ever had Sweet and Sour Pork? I have. A LOT. Every place does it different, but my first introduction to Sweet and Sour Pork is still something I remember. I was a teenager and had never had it before. I did the whole, “Eww, I don’t want it” and got the classic, “Just try it”. I tried it and fell in love. The original that I had was battered and deep-fried pork, sweet and sour sauce, pineapple and green pepper. So today this is my interpretation. I should note that there is no actual Sweet and Sour sauce. I don’t even have a clue how to make that and I wanted to keep it easy and simple. So … here we go!
Now do you see why I call it Sweet and Sour Pork without the Sweet and Sour? This is just a quick and healthy version of a beloved favorite. Try it for yourself and let us know if you miss the Sweet and Sour sauce. I bet you won’t!
