Tangy Sweet and Sour Pork

My children always asked for this wonderful and tangy pork dish when they came home from school for the weekend. Today, they still appreciate the stir-fry's comforting flavor.

    Excellent and easy to make. Might have been a little too salty, so I would maybe try with low sodium soy sauce next time.
