  1. Deep fry pork in batches in 350 degree oil.
  2. Drain, blot and set aside while making sauce.
  3. (Suggestion: partially cook pork at 325; drain& let it cool for 15- 20 minutes. Bring oil temp up to 375 and finish cooking pork. This gives you a moist but thoroughly cooked inside and a golden, crispy coating).
  4. For sauce: brown garlic in a little oil; discard.
  5. Give the sauce ingredients a good stir, pour into the pan and bring to a boil.
  6. Stir in binder a little at a time to thicken and clear using just enough to get the job done.
  7. Stir in pineapple, then pork to heat.
  8. Note: If using green pepper, stir it in with the garlic.
  9. It cooks in about a minute on high heat.
  10. Note: The oil should be cooled enough so that you can handle it.
  11. Strain into a container and save for the next use.
  12. You can refresh it next time by putting in a slice or two of ginger when it's hot.
  13. That gets rid of any strong odors.
  14. Discard ginger.
  15. Note: cooking temperatures are approximate.
  16. Use your judgement and experience as a guide.
