Ingredients:
2/3 strip of Pork Filet,about 200gm (Note 1)
1/2 Tomato, cut into 6 wedges
1/2 Red Onion, cut into wedges
1/2 Green Bell Pepper, cut into small pieces
Small section of Cucumber, deseed & cut into small pieces
6 pieces of Canned Lychee (amount to own preference, keep the syrup) (Note 2)

Marinate:
1/2tsp Sugar
1/2TBS Light Soy Sauce
1TBS Mirin
Dashes of Pepper
1 Egg (beaten)
_____________
3TBS Cornflour

Sauce:
2TBS Tomato Ketchup
1TBS HP sauce
1TBS Light Soy Sauce
1tsp Sugar
2tsp Syrup from canned lychee (Note 3)
1tsp Cornflour
30ml Water

Method:
•Wash and pat dry the pork filet, cut into small cubes.
•Pour marinate onto pork cubes, except cornflour. Mix well.
Cover and leave in the fridge for at least 2hrs.
•Remove marinated meat from fridge about 30mins before frying, add in 3 tablespoons of cornflour and mix well. The meat will be coated with a gooey mixture.

•Heat enough oil for frying. Deep/Shallow fry pork cubes till golden brown & crispy.
•Drain away excess oil and set aside.


•To cook the sauce, mix the sauce ingredients in a bowl. Lightly grease frying pan. Fry the red onion and bell pepper for a minute.

Switch to low flame, add in tomatoes, lychee and sauce mixture. Let the sauce thicken and add more water if needed. Turn up flame, add in crispy pork cubes, stir fry to coat well. Lastly, add cucumbers and mix well.
•Make sure the sauce coat the pork cubes evenly, dish up and serve.

⚠️Note
(1) I use Pork Filet (ηŒͺ腰肉) as that's my son's favorite. The meat texture remains soft after deep fried. You may substitute with Pork Collar or Pork Belly, if preferred.
(2) Canned Lychee can be replaced with Canned Pineapple or fresh pineapple.
(3) If fresh pineapple is used or canned syrup is omitted, do increase the sugar by another teaspoon. Adjust taste if necessary.
