Sweet & Sour Pork 咕噜肉

What an appetizing dish! It looks rather complicated to prepare? Actually is really really fast and simple :D The sauce mixture and deep fried pork are prepared before hand. With heated wok maintained at medium high heat throughout the sautéing process, this dish will be ready in mins. Get ready your bowl of hot rice and chopsticks and ready to dig in! :D 

Something interesting to share!! I read this article on MediFacts from Facebook :D How to differentiate the gender of bell peppers!! hahaha….Turn the bell peppers over, the ones with 4 bumps are female and those with 3 bumps are male ^0^ The females peppers are full of seeds and is better for eating raw as they are taste sweeter whereas the males ones are better for cooking!
