Sweet and Sour Sauce


  • In a large bowl, combine pork rinds, ginger, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Mix well.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs together.
  • Cube pork into 1 inch cubes (even as possible makes for easier cooking), then dunk the pork in the egg and roll in the pork rind mixture. Place on a plate. 
  • In a cast iron skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Fry the pork in batches. About 2 minutes on each side (pork should not have any pink in the middle). Transfer to paper towel lined plate to absorb some oil.

  • Make the sauce:​ Heat a medium saucepan over high heat. Add all sauce ingredients to the saucepan. Stir frequently, allowing it to boil and thicken and to not burn.
  • Pour the sweet and sour sauce over cooked pork. Coat pork thoroughly and serve with cauliflower rice and optional steamed broccoli. Optional, sprinkle with sesame seeds and green scallions.
