Sweet and Sour Pork I
This recipe was amazing!! We made it last night and couldn't get over how well it turned out...better than takeout by a mile! Will definitely be making again. I followed most of the recipe exactly except that we also added in broccoli (we love tons of veggies). For the pork, however, we made some changes. First of all, we used leftover pork tenderloin cut up into cubes. Instead of breading and frying it the way they do in the recipe, I used another technique that I use for other dishes as well, its called 'velveting'. You marinate the pork cubes in a mixture of 1 beaten egg, 1 TBSP cornstarch, 1 TBSP cooking sherry or beer, 2 TSP sesame oil, and 1/2 TSP salt. Cover and put in the fridge for at least 1 hour. Before you are ready to cook, take the pork cubes out, drain the marinade, and dust in more cornstarch. Then fry until golden brown.

Authentic Thai Coconut Soup
I made this soup, and it turned out better than a restaurant! It was surprisingly easy to make as well. I would have given it 5 stars but the fish sauce made our kitchen smell pretty bad, and now I am forbidden from making it when my bf is home. Tasted amazing though!

Pork Tenderloin
I tried this recipe mostly for the marinade, and it was a huge hit. I've made it with both tenderloin and I also tried it last night with pork chops. The first time I made it, I also added some honey into the marinade, and it was delicious. I omitted the apple jelly since my boyfriend doesn't like it, but the meat turned out fantastic. This will definitely be a staple in our house.
