  • 2tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 200ml water
  • 2 x 125g bags boil in the bag rice
  • Vegetable Oil

Heat the oil in a pan. Soften the onions, then remove them and brown the pork.

Add the onions back to the pan. Mix together the vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, tomato puree and water, and pour over the pork and onions.

Simmer for 15 mins, then add the frozen veg and the pineapple and simmer for another couple of minutes.

Meanwhile, cook the rice as per instructions on the packet. Serve the sweet and sour pork on a bed of rice.
