Hot And Sour Pork And Vegetables Recipe 786x1048


Main Dish

  • 200 - 300g pork fillet
  • 1/2 cup corn flour
  • 1/2 cup peanut oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 medium zucchini, grated
  • 1 small parsnip, shaved
  • 1 medium carrot, grated
  • 1 cup red cabbage, shredded
  • 2 spring onions (green part only)
  • 1/2 cup coriander, washed and chopped


  • 1/2 cup palm sugar
  • 3 tbs ginger grated
  • 1 long red chilli, finely chopped
  • 3/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  • To make the sauce, combine all ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to the boil. Turn down heat and reduce liquid by a third. Set aside.
  • Cut pork into small chunks. Combine salt and pepper with cornflour. Coat each piece well and shake to remove excess flour.
  • Heat oil in a small pot (don’t leave this unattended). To test when temperature is hot enough, sprinkle a small amount of flour in – it should sizzle immediately.
  • Set up a plate with paper towel next to the pot then gently lower pork into hot oil, using tongs or a slotted spoon. Cook until browned then remove from oil and set aside to drain. Continue until all pork is cooked then remove the oil from the heat and cool.
  • Combine all raw shredded and shaved vegetables into a mixing bowl.
  • Return the sauce to the boil and add in pork. Bring to the boil then add all sauce and pork to the mixing bowl of vegetables. Mix well and add fresh herbs.
  • Serve with brown jasmine rice if you can tolerate it.
