I made this for company tonight and it was so quick and easy. The best sweet and sour pork recipe I have ever made. The only change I will make next time is to cut down on the vinegar. I doubled the recipe and think the vinegar should be cut down a wee bit. My company loved it too. Thanks

I have made this several times now and I love it. I usually use leftover pork roast and sometimes add sliced carrots. So good!
