Sweet and Sour Pork...with Pineapple....

Homecook sweet and sour pork.......

Its not easy being a stay -at- home mum too..today..son H came back from college....feeling very hungry and i was busy making my cookies....so my brains was really blank on what to cook for him ....so i ask him to name a dish....which must have at least 90 % of the ingredients on hand.....and he requested for Ku Lou Yuk....meaning sweet and sour pork. .......a can of pineapple.....a piece of 500 gms meat....some big onions....and some chillis.. and the ku lou sauce is all i need to make this dish.....this is how i made this dish in less than an hour.....

While waiting for the meat to thaw.....i made the ku lou sauce first...

The Ku Lou sauce....

5 tbsp tomato sauce.....( i used the many small packets from the fast food like kfc and mcdonalds that had been scattering in my kitchen drawer...recycle instead of throwing away....)

3 tbsp chilli sauce
3 tbsp plum sauce
3 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp lemon juice
a dash of salt

Mix all together and bring to a boil in a pan....leave aside.....then cube one big onion into big chunks.....can cube some cucumber ..but i do not have any...open the canned pineapple.....buy the cubed ones so just save me some time....cut up a chilli...i used the dried ones(poor me did not even had fresh ones...) after soaking it in hot water.....

Slice the meat...(can used chicken meat and fish if you do not eat pork)...into thick slices....and season it with a tablespoon of oyster sauce....salt and pepper....coat it lightly with corn flour before deepfrying it in hot oil..til crispy and brown...drain and keep aside.....

In a clean pan...fried the chillis , onions and pineapple cubes in a tablespoon of oil til fragrant....add in ku lou sauce, fried meat, and mix well...the dish is ready to be served.........my two sons are happy eating it now.......
