Reviews for Sweet 'n' Sour Pork Stir-Fry
"Lovve this recipie. Changed directions a little. Stir fried pork first and kept warm. Holding veggies sometime makes them too soft."
"I made this tonight (served over white rice) and it was really good! Hubby and kids all liked it too. I doubled the recipe and added about 2 TBSP more brown sugar to make sure it was sweet enough for the kids...was very tasty! Next time I'm going to add mushrooms also."
