Sweet & sour is an entire flavour philosophy in China, found just as often in dipping sauces as in main dishes. But the pork recipe we all know and love, where the sauce is reduced to a sticky glaze in the wok, is Cantonese. It’s known locally as gu lou yuk, which either means ‘historic pork dish’ or ‘tummy-rumbling pork dish’ depending on who you ask. Ketchup might seem like an unusual addition, but Hong Kong chefs have been using its tangy umami kick for decades; ‘ketchup’ is in fact a Chinese word. The competition between vinegar’s tang and a more fruity sourness is the heart of the dish, with ketchup uniting both flavours.
