Pork fillet Chinese Recipes
Clean the lean pork with water. Then cut it into thin slices and put them onto a plate. Lastly, add in salt, cooking wine, egg white, oil and starch, and stir well in the same direction with chopsticks until it feels a bit sticky.
Note: the amount of the seasonings listed above can be appropriately used according to one's personal taste. Meanwhile, to make a plate of delicious sweet and sour pork fillet, the preparation of the sauce is very important. Take some tomato ketchup out of the tomato ketchup bottle and put it into a small bowl. Add in some salt, white sugar and white vinegar, and stir well with a teaspoon until the ingredients are mixed together.
Meanwhile, prepare the wet cornstarch for the thickening later.
Place a wok over high heat until hot. Add some cooking oil, and add in the processed lean pork strips one by one with chopsticks. Turn off the fire and remove them when they look yellowish-white and put them in a colander quickly. Add the fried strips back in to be fired again when the temperature of the oil in the wok is heated back up to 70 centigrade (158 Fahrenheit). The strips are fried well until they turn golden. Then, remove them from the wok.
Leave some cooking oil in the wok, swirling to coat the sides. Add in the chopped garlic and ginger and stir-fry over high heat for about 20 seconds. Then, add in the tomato ketchup mixture and the wet cornstarch and stir-fry for 10 seconds. And in the chopped green onion lastly and stir-fry them together until they smell fragrant, about 20 seconds.
Add in the fried lean pork and stir-fry for about 3 minutes over high heat until the seasoning sauce coats the outside skin of the fried strips.
Now, turn off the fire, find a fine porcelain plate, and pick the delicious sweet and sour pork fillet out of the wok.
A plate of delicious sweet and sour pork fillet is complete, waiting for you to enjoy it.

On June 18, 2013, a group of Australian guests including Mr. Scott, Ms. Julie, Mr. Raymond and Ms. Helen joined our private tour with the chance of learning to cook Chinese food in Xian. Sweet Corn Soup was an easy Chinese soup recipe selected by them as beginners. Without doubt it came out successfully and tasted flavorful. They also tried to cook Sweet and Sour Pork Fillet, which is more challengeable. We were so proud of them when the delicious, color-flavor dish was served for lunch that day.
