Best ever Sweet and Sour Pork Recipe 

Now, I’m a bit of a health nut most of the time. I do enjoy eating out and   occasionally having like scampi and chips or an curry as a treat but I will not eat any other take out. Particulary as I live in Glasgow, home to the deep fried everything; pizza, mars bars, snickers. It just makes my arteries sad reading it Chinese food is anothing thing that doesn’t agree with me and this is a recipe that is fantastic for when I’m craving something easy but not going to feel coming through my skin for the next two days. This recipe came from ‘The Hungry Student’ cookbook, which honestly, I would not have been able to learn to cook without.

You will need:

-2 pork loin, chopped into chunks 

-1 pepper, chopped into chunks 

– 1 crushed garlic clove

-ginger, either fresh or ground 

-a dash of ketchup 

-a dash of honey

-a skoosh of soy sauce 

-1 small can of pineapple rings, drained 

Serve with rice and other vegetables, hence why there are carrots in my photos. 


1. Fry the garlic and ginger till you can smell the garlic.

2. Add the pork and cook until brown. Meanwhile, boil the kettle for the rice, add to a pan and bring to the boil.


3.Add all of the ingredients and put the rice. Cook for as long as the rice is cooking so about another ten minutes or so.

4.Serve with the rice and extra veg and that’s it, it doesn’t get easier than that. 


This recipe uses all store cupboard essentials and if you can splash out for the pork, it’s definetly worth it.
