Sweet and Sour Anything

40 mins (prep 15, cooking 25)
20 ingredients
4-6 servings
I wanted to make sweet and sour something, started out with one recipe, ended up adapting another, and in the end, had a very good sweet and sour vegetable dish, with some chicken for good measure, although quite frankly, it was fine with just the vegetables. So in this recipe, I give you just the veggies, but feel free to add meat ( I cut two chicken breasts in thin slices and stir-fried them, then added veggies to that), I'm adding a note on how to prepare pork if you choose to use that. Also, use whichever vegetables you have, so many lend themselves to chinese cuisine. I should add that you will need to make the marinade even if you don't use meat, since you will use it in your sauce. Please play with the recipe, that's what I did! I've given cooking time allowing for meat, it will be less if you omit the meat.The original recipe comes from The Australian Womens Weekly "Chinese Cooking Class Cookbook"
