I love sweet and sour pork, but it has too many calories and since I use olive oil, it cannot be heated to a high heat. I wonder if anyone has substituted baking in the oven for frying. It would have to have the same coating -the flour, corn starch, water, touch of salt, and eggs, but instead of frying it in frying pan, I would have to be baked in the oven and the sauce made and poured over it. The end results would be that it would taste like it was fried. So an suggestions, and can it be done?

I have a recipe for Sweet and Sour Pork Chops. It isn't cooked in the oven but it is simmered on top of the stove. I use olive oil when I make this recipe so I believe that this is similar to something you are looking for. I haven't been able to find a recipe exactly like you have described, sorry. I am very interested to see if anyone has one. Sweet and Sour Pork Chops Submitted by : Shelly Johnson 6-8 pork chops 2 Tbsp.olive oil 1 Tbsp. cornstarch 3 Tbsp. vinegar 2 cups fruit cocktail 3 Tbsp. brown sugar 1-2 Tbsp. minced onion 1 tsp. salt 1/4 tsp. dried dill In skillet, brown chops in oil. Remove. Combine cornstarch and vinegar and add to oil, stirring until thick. Add water if necessary. Add cocktail, sugar, onion, salt and dill. Add chops. Simmer 1 hour.

We boil our pork or user left over roast prok, then the rest is in the sauce with us. We use vinegar and apricots (sometimes pineapple but I like apricots) and sugar, and we put the pork cubes on a bed of rice and pour the sauce over the top. The roast pork has the best flavour, we've never battered ours, thats more pork ablls than sweet and sour pork round here. Anyway, its delicious, you might try using plain roast pork with your normal sauce, see if you like it?
