Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Simply one of the best ways to cook pork tenderloin. The tenderloin slices are crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Coated in the refreshing sweet and sour sauces, this pork tenderloin dish is best served with rice.

Called “锅包肉” in Chinese, this pork tenderloin dish originates from Northeast China and is a local favorite. Invented by Zheng Xingwen, a private chef for a Chinese official working in Harbin in late Qing dynasty, the sweet and sour flavor was devised to delight his Russian guests.

After the pork dish spread to nearby Liaoning region, Zheng Xingwen added ketchup in the stir frying process, and the dish tastes just as good, though locals in Harbin region still prefer the the original cooking method.

J Russell says:

Nobody going to talk about '1tbs sugar' filling the entire screen and half the bowl being poured in, or being at least 10 times the quantity of '1 cup honey'?? Follow the quantities listed and yours won't taste anything like it should, due to the terrible inaccuracies in measurements.
