Wendell's Sweet Sour Pork

Wendell made this for dinner last night. He used the recipe from Cook with Susan blog. He said he used pork butt instead of spareribs. 


3 pounds spareribs, cut into 1” strips
2 Tbsp. soy sauce
¼ cup flour
3 cloves garlic, smashed
3 inches ginger, smashed & sliced
1/3 cup cider vinegar
¾ cup water
½ cup brown sugar, packed
1 tsp. salt

  1. Have the butcher cut the spareribs into 1” strips through the bone.
  2. Cut the spareribs between the bones into bite size pieces and place in a large bowl. Add soy sauce and mix. Add flour and mix again. Let sit for 30 minutes.
  3. In a large pot add the vinegar, water, brown sugar and salt.
  4. Heat a wok or nonstick frying pan on med high. Add 2 – 3 Tbsp. oil and gently brown the ginger and garlic. Remove and place in the pot with the sauce. Then add ½ the meat to the wok and spread out but don’t stir. Let brown for 2 minutes. Using a tong, turn pieces to evenly brown. Remove pieces as they brown and add them to the pot. Cook the other ½ of the meat the same way and add to the pot. Stir to mix meat with the sauce. 
  5. Place the pot on the stove and bring to a boil then turn heat down to low and let simmer covered for 1 hour or until tender. Stir occasionally.

Kay, my son loved it.

Aunty, I was gonna taste a bit 'cause it smelled good, but . . . I just couldn't do it.

Les, I didn't eat it, but when I plated it for the picture, I could tell that the meat was very tender.

Kat, smelled good!

Susan, yah, I never cared for the red gooey sauce.

N, he did.

Chet, LOL, I can just imagine him. Too funny.
