Ingredients:
3/4 Pound(s) Lean boneless pork
1 Tablespoon(s) Rice wine or dry sherry
1 Tablespoon(s) Light soy sauce
1/2 Teaspoon(s) Salt
1 Green bell pepper
1 Red bell pepper
1 Carrot
2 Scallions
1 Egg, beaten
2 Tablespoon(s) Cornstarch
2 Cup(s) Oil, preferably peanut
3 Ounce(s) Canned lychees, drained OR
1 fresh orange in segments
2/3 Cup(s) Chicken stock
1 1/2 Tablespoon(s) Chinese white rice vinegar
or cider vinegar
1 Tablespoon(s) Sugar
1 Tablespoon(s) Tomato paste
1 Teaspoon(s) Water
Directions:
CUT THE PORK INTO 1-INCH cubes. Put the cubes into a bowl together
with the rice wine or sherry, 1 tablespoon of light soy sauce and 1/2
teaspoon salt, and marinate for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, cut the green
and red peppers into 1-inch squares. Peel and cut the carrot and
scallions into 1-inch chunks. Bring a pot of water to a boil and
blanch the carrots in it for 4 minutes; drain and set aside. Mix the
egg and cornstarch in a bowl until they are well blended into a
batter. Lift the pork cubes out of the marinade, put them into the
batter and coat each piece well. Heat the oil in a deep-fat fryer or
large wok until it is almost smoking. Remove the pork pieces from the
batter with a slotted spoon, and deep-fry them. Drain the deep-fried
pork cubes on paper towels. Combine the chicken stock, soy sauce,
salt, vinegar, sugar and tomato paste in a large saucepan. Bring it to
a boil. Add vegetables (not the lychees or oranges.) Stir well. In a
small bowl, blend together the cornstarch and water. Stir this mixture
into the sauce and bring it back to a boil. Turn the heat down to a
simmer. Add the lychees or oranges and pork cubes. Mix well, and then
turn the mixture onto a deep platter. Serve at once. From Gemini's
