Sweet and Sour Pork (Ku Lou Yuk)

Saturday, May 24, 2008





Oh, today is the day! Hubby finally realised his promise to cook Sweet and Sour Pork. Its been a very long time ago since he made that promise. (Believe me, its been a long long time ago) You must be wondering why must it be Sweet and Sour Pork and not any other dishes. Well, the reason is very simple. Sweet and Sour Pork (Ku Lou Yok) has always been my favourite dish since I was small. My mom always cook this dish whenever I return home. Okay folks, I got a confession here, I am more a carnivore person, I just love meat and don't get me wrong, I do take veges as well since I know the goodness of a balance and healthy diet. Hubby been busy preparing for D-Day. Last night, we went shopping for the ingredients to make this dish. Its kinda funny to explain to Hubby what is the ingredients written in the cookbook and the location of the ingredients placed in the hypermarket when we were doing our shopping. To a certain extend, he is kinda confused with what is stated in the cookbook but after some brief explanation, he understands it completely and today he completed his task with FLYING COLOURS. It tasted so delicious.
