    The so called American style you’re saying isn’t inauthentic. It’s Cantonese style called 咕噜肉. This version your eating is from 四川. Both are authentic just different.

    can replace the ketchup with Apple Vinegar/Cider Vinegar it will bring out the sweet sour taste.

    The American sweet and sour pork is more similar to Canton styled sweet and sour pork. We call them ‘Goo Lo Yuk’. They are cut in blocks. To taste the authentic version of American sweet and sour pork, you need to try the Canton one at an authentic Canton restaurant, not a Sichuan one.
    Canton style is a completely different cuisine from Sichuan style. Even the sweet and sour pork is taste different.

    Even within China there are multiple versions of the Sweet Sour Pork, the one in the western world resembles the Cantonese version, but we always serve the dish with bones

    I don’t know, ma’am. My mum’s version of Sweet and Sour Pork has pineapple and bell pepper in it, and I am from Southern China. I guess different provinces has their different version. The tasty video one is more close to Cantonese version.

    What she’s been originally eating is not an interpretation. It’s authentic Chinese-American cuisine; a way that Chinese immigrants prepared their dishes from home using the ingredients easily available. Yes, it was Westernized to please the masses, but it shouldn’t be derided.

    Food culture is a purely artistic creation. In a real world, there is no authentic or fake Chinese food. For me, any healthy, delicious tasty dish, using genuine Chinese cooking ingredients and style is the authentic Chinese food.

    I'm quite disappointed in Inga... Sweet and sour pork is quite authentic to me as a Hongkonger. They can from 咕嚕肉. Definitely not from 糖醋排骨

    From the looks of it, the tan cu li hi looks like the Korean Tang soo yuk which is actually a version of a Chinese dish brought to and made at Chinese restaurants in Korea by Chinese immigrants. Based on the sound of the two names it’s probs the same dish! The sauce is ketchup-free but definitely has sugar and vinegar. It’s another ex-pat version of which I am thinking is a very popular Chinese recipe. It would be interesting to trace all the different versions of this dish to dissect the differences.
