Boys Noize - Jeffer

Sweet and Sour Pork in Chinkiang Style - I was able to make this dish since I was a kid. But the ingredients and preparations were slightly different. 

One day, I chatted with a staff of the neighborhood food store. She told me that since she always deliver goods to restaurants, thus she knows their recipe.  She was very generous and told me all the details. After I tried this at home, I found it gave more sweetie aroma compare to my home recipe. So I decided to post in my blog and share with others.


  1. Hi:
    I just made this recipe for my Mom and it is so good. I could not find the cane sugar slab so I used the lump sugar candy instead. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Hi Purple,
    I'm happy that you like my recipe. Yes, normal white sugar will do, just the sauce will be thinner. Sometime when I don't have cane sugar at home, I also use white sugar.
