Sweet-and-Sour Pork Recipe

Publisher Photo
After my sister moved away to the university, I used to visit her on weekends. She often made this wonderful and tangy pork dish. Now, every time I make it for my family, it reminds me of those special visits. Everyone who tries it loves it. -Cherry Williams, St. Albert, Alberta

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 22, 2014

"This was just ok. Very sour. Probably won't make again."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 7, 2013

"This is awesome! Next time I'll double the recipe to have leftovers! Also, used only 1 T. of red wine vinegar. May add some more veggies next time, but either way, this is a definite keeper!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 22, 2012

"This is a very easy to prepare recipe. The only things I did differently were to use fresh pineapple instead of canned and also I added a small can of sliced water chestnuts and a small can of sliced bamboo shoots and served it over rice vermicelli instead of regular rice. I tripled the recipe so that both my husband and I would have enough for quick lunches for a couple of days. The kids don't care for left-overs, but we DO!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 5, 2011

"We all enjoyed this meal, but I had to double the recipe to get enough for my large family! It was a bit tangy, so I may use less vinegar next time! We like it a little more sweet and a bit less sour! :)"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 14, 2011

"Liked that I had all the ingredients on hand for this recipe but would rate the flavour as average. Not enough bite to it."
