    Similar in taste to other sweet and sour pork Asian dishes this recipe uses an apple sauce (apple puree) for its sweetness.

    Serves: 3 

    • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
    • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
    • 6 tablespoons soy sauce
    • 1/2 cup applesauce
    • 250g pork loin, sliced and cut into thin strips
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons cornflour
    • 2 tablespoons peanut oil
    • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
    • 1 tablespoon finley diced fresh ginger
    • 3 cups broccoli florets

    Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Whisk together the hoisin sauce, brown sugar, soy sauce and applesauce in a small bowl; set aside.
    2. Combine the pork and cornflour in a bowl. Mix until the cornflour evenly coats the pork; set aside.
    3. Heat the peanut oil and sesame oil in a large frypan or wok over medium-high heat. Cook the pork in three separate batches in the hot oil until no longer pink in the middle; 2 to 3 minutes per batch. Remove pork to a plate lined with paper towels to drain, reserving the oil.
    4. Add the ginger to the frypan; cook and stir for 30 seconds. Stir in the broccoli and cook until tender. Return the pork to the frypan and pour in the sauce; toss to coat.
    5. Cook until all ingredients are hot.

    I did a pared down, lighter-on-the-calories version of this and it was spectacular. I used 1 tbsp of olive oil supplemented with olive oil cooking spray rather than the peanut and sesame oils. I left out the cornstarch and just cooked the pork in the olive oil. I didn't have broccoli, so I used a green pepper, a red pepper, and an onion, all sliced. Oh, and I had 1.5 pounds of pork tenderloin, so I used it all. I left the sauce unchanged (except used splenda brown sugar blend instead of brown sugar); it is delicious as written. My husband loved it even though he doesn't normally like sweet foods, and our three male guests raved about it. I served it with a basic fried rice (3 cups cooked white rice, 1 egg, 3 tablespoons each of soy sauce and rice vinegar, all fried up together with olive oil).  -  13 Sep 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    OH MY GOSH! This sauce is to die for! I used pork, but you could use beef or chicken or shrimp just as well. Veggie selection is unlimited too! I used green, red and yellow bell pepper, a handful of frozen green peas, yellow onion, chopped celery, drained water chestnuts and bean sprouts. You could also use mushrooms, baby corn, carrots, and of course, broccoli (as the recipe calls for). The sauce is the key! Served over fried rice – YUMMMM! Thank you, Jenny G.!  -  08 Oct 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I made this as written and it was really yummy. Will definitely make again. Next time I will add some more veggies though. I was given advice on the Recipe Exchange to use a cheese grater to "chop" the ginger after you peel it and it worked great. Thank you for the recipe!  -  18 Jun 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
