Sweet and Sour Pork 2.0

I love sweet and sour pork! It is hands down my favourite Chinese dish, when it’s done right. Unfortunately, most of the time, the pork is too tough and the sauce is too sweet. This is my take on it, with the pork guaranteed to crunch and the sauce / salsa a nice balance of sweet and sour.
