    I know it sounds a little strange, but it's quite common: take a leek, and put it in your sweet and sour pork. (Dom DeLuise, anyone? Am I dating myself just a tad?) On a more serious note, nice job! It looks very tasty. And sometimes the goggles are just the thing you need for the onion battles. When you say "corn flour", I presume the use is as a thickener? One could probably use corn starch, too (maybe exactly the same thing?). Yet it also look as though you are using the corn flour as a kind of breading with the pork. Ever tried this with All-Purpose Flour (bleached wheat flour)?

    "I presume the use is as a thickener?" yes, you presume right, about the corn starch or the "all purpose flour" i don't know... but there's a lot of different recipes for it...
