Make the Sauce

First make the sweet and sour sauce, by mixing the cornflour with the white wine vinegar in a bowl.

Add all the remaining ingredients, and mix in to combine together and then put aside

Cook the Meat

In a very hot wok, add the peanut oil, and heat up until hot. Add the grated ginger and the garlic and cook for 30 seconds, stirring all the time.

Add the loin of pork and cook for 2 minutes until brown all over. Add the onion and cook for a further 1 minute

Carefully add all the ingredients to the Lekue steamer case. Then add all the other ingredient and mix together

Now pour over the sweet and sour sauce and mix in with the rest of the contents.

Close the lids of the steamer case and either place in the microwave and cook on full power for 5 minutes, or until the pork is cooked through, or in a preheated oven for 12-15 minutes,

Serve immediately along with boiled rice
