Recipe: Rowena's Sweet & Sour "Pork"

A colleague of mine passed this very easy recipe along to me.  

1 1/2 cups of water
1 Big Onion (chopped)
1 Tomato (chopped)
2 cloves of garlic (minced or grated)
3 tbsp of vinegar
1/2 tsp of sugar
Spices:  1/2 inch of cinnamon stick, 3 whole black peppers, 2 cloves
pork (or chicken)

1.  Heat oil and spices in pan.  Add garlic and fry.
2.  Once garlic is browning, add onion and fry for awhile (onion should begin to look translucent).  Once this happened, I removed the mixture from the pan (temporarily) and placed it in a small bowl.
3.  Fry tomato on low heat until it becomes a paste.  Add vinegar.  Once this is done, I removed it from the pan and added it into the bowl with the onions.
4.  Add meat and sear on high heat for 2 minutes.
5.  Add all ingredients back in pan with meat, add water and sugar (salt if you'd like).
6.  Boil until meat is cooked.

Serve over rice.

I used chicken instead of pork (take advantage of what your kitchen already has!) and will now be adding this to my mental recipe box.  It was a yummy, tangy surprise! Pin It
