hi sinner cooked tis dish for dinner last nite. unfortunately fam. didnt quite like it. the well marinated and deep fried pork was great but not the sauce. it turned out too gooey. i think 2 tsp of cornstarch is little too much. maybe i will cut down on it the next time. many thanks

Never mind, greedy. Can't win all the time. ;)
Next time if the sauce is too gooey, add more liquid to dilute it.
