Sweet Chili Pork #SundaySupper

Make this sweet chili pork for a Chinese take out inspired dinner.

Sweet Chili Pork

If you’ve looked through the archives of Cookin’ Mimi you will have noticed we like spicy food. There is chipotle ranch dressing, jalapeño ranch dip, and much more.

This week’s Sunday Supper theme is Spice is Nice and Some Like it Hot. Whether you like a mild burn or melt your face off hot there is something for everyone. Be sure to stop by our fabulous host The Chef Next Door.


Sweet chili sauce is one of my favorite ways to add spice because I love sweet heat. It’s a great dipping sauce for egg rolls, potstickers, or even chicken finger.

Sweet chili pork is my version of a chicken dish from a well known Chinese food chain. Breaded and fried chunks of pork and pieces of onion are coated with sweet chili sauce and is perfect with hot cooked rice or fried rice.
