Whole kitchen in its salty proposal for the month of January invites us to prepare a classic of Chinese cuisine: sweet and sour pork.

After the Christmas break we return to the load with the new proposals of Whole kitchen!
The bittersweet pig had tried it but had never done it at home, how clumsy, how simple this dish is and how good it is. From now on it stays forever in my kitchen!

I hope you spend a very good weekend.
