Life ¦ Sweet and sour recipe

Sweet and sour is one of my all time favourite meals, I also really love cooking it so today I thought I'd share my recipe with you! It's super simple and super quick whilst still being really tasty. This isn't the prettiest of meals I must warn you but what it lacks in the looks department it makes up for in general yumminess! 

1 pepper (I prefer red or yellow)
200g baby corn 
150g beansprouts
Small tin of bamboo shoots
3 medium carrots
1 pack of mushrooms
(All of the above veggies are completely optional I swap things in and out all the time other things I love in it are broccoli and pineapple!) 
3 Garlic cloves 
1 bunch of spring onions or 1 large onion 
A couple of chilli's
A thumb sized piece of ginger (Grated)

For the sauce 
5 Tbsp soy sauce
5 Tbsp white wine vinegar
3 Tbsp soft brown sugar
3 Tbsp tomato sauce
3 Tbsp corn flour

Heat the wok and stir fry the garlic, ginger, chilli and onions for a minute then add whatever meat and brown. Then add in all your other vegetables. How long the veggies need depends on how much you've got in your wok and how much you want your veg to be cooked. I personally like my carrots still a bit crunchy so I add them in after about 2 minutes of stir frying all the other veg.

Mix all of the sauce ingredients in a jug and make sure the cornflour is fully dissolved. Pour the sauce over the ingredients in the wok, sometimes I find it needs more sauce so I just make up a little bit more if it needs it. 

I then serve it with either rice or noodles and it's done!
