1
Prep the boneless pork, remove any excess fat if necessary and cut them into 1 inch pieces.
2
Place the pork pieces in a large bowl, sprinkle cornstarch over them and toss until all pieces are fully covered.
3
In a large wok, heat the sunflower oil over medium-high heat. Make sure there's enough oil to deep-fry the pork pieces.
4
Add pork to the wok in batches, careful not to crowd the pan. Fry until they turn golden brown and crispy.
5
Using a slotted spoon, transfer the fried pork to a wire rack to drain excess oil.
SAUCE
6
Empty the wok of oil, leaving around a tablespoon. Add white vinegar, being careful as it will release strong fumes. Let it simmer for a minute.
7
Stir in sugar and soy sauce until the sugar is completely dissolved.
8
Add tomato paste and water to the wok. Stir until ingredients are well combined and the sauce thickens.
9
Put the crispy pork back into the wok and toss until every piece is generously coated with the sauce.

Let it heat for about a minute before serving. Serve hot and enjoy!
