The young woman at the little Korean grocery (Hyundai Asian Market
) was arranging a display of pretty red sweet potatoes. They looked so fresh that two of them hopped into my basket before I knew it!
Oh sweet potato cakes!!

Sweet and sour pork is a popular Chinese preparation. This is a completely Japanese version that is not too sweet, starchy, or greasy. This is not a quick to make recipe: the meat and vegetables are marinated, deep-fried, and finally braised. The frying provides a pleasant crust to preserve the shape and flavor each piece of food in the sauce.
