Gu Lo Yok – Sweet and Sour Boneless Pork Slices


I prefer home cooked sweet and sour boneless pork slices simply because I would like to have a well balanced of sweetness and sourness.

This dish ordered from Zi Char does not cater to my palate. Sometimes the dish is cooked too sweet and at times a bit sour.

Gu Lo Yok –  Cantonese Style Sweet Sour Pork

What you need is a good quality fresh tender pork loin.

Just marinate the boneless pork slices with corn flour, salt, pepper, light soy sauce and beaten egg and leave in the refrigerator for about two hours.

Ensure each piece of the meat is well coated.

Before cooking, bring the marinated pork to room temperature.

In a large wok, heat oil over high heat and drop a few pork slices at a time.

Just make sure that pork slices do not stick together.

Fry in batches until golden brown and crispy.

Line a plate with paper hand towel to absorb excess oil.

You can prepare your own gravy.

For this recipe, here are the ingredient used and also my family preferred taste.

Maggi Ketchup

Chilli Sauce

Plum Sauce

Apple Vinegar

Sesame Oil

Coarse Sugar or raw sugar

Home prepared chicken stock

In a sauce pan, add all the sauce ingredients and bring to a boil.

Taste the gravy and adjust accordingly to your taste bud.

Add the fried pork slices into the gravy and make sure each piece is well coated.

Garnished with Chinese lettuces.

Simple and yummy.
