Marinade the pork in all the marinade ingredients for 2 hours or overnight

Method for the sauce:
  1. In a wok over high heat toss the peppers, red onion and mangetout in a little oil for 2 minutes then set to one side.

  3. Fry in small batches until golden and crunchy (approximately 3 minutes), then drain on kitchen paper and toss through the sweet and sour sauce.
