  1. In a medium bowl, combine the salt, bicarbonate of soda and water. Place the pork pieces in the bowl and turn to coat.
  2. Place the tapioca starch in a large, resealable food bag. Dip the slices of pork in beaten egg and then drop into the bag; shake until all the pieces are coated.
  3. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium high heat. Fry the pork for 5 to 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove and set aside.
  4. In the same frying pan over medium high heat, combine the green pepper, red chilli, pineapple, onion and tomato and cook for 5 minutes.
  5. To make sauce: In a separate small bowl, combine the caster sugar, salt, cornflour, vinegar, ketchup, plum sauce and water. Mix well and pour this into the frying pan with the vegetables.
  6. Reduce heat to low and let simmer for 5 to 10 minutes, allowing the sauce to thicken. Return the pork pieces to the frying pan, mix all together well and serve.


*Tapioca starch is a gluten-free thickener and available from Doves Farm.
