Slow Cooker Sweet and Sour Pork

A delicious crock pot recipe -I believe it originally came from a cooking magazine, but I'm not sure which one or what month/year. The sauce is flavorful and mild--not obnoxiously sweet like you might imagine Chinese-food type sweet and sour. We served it over rice--yummy

The intro does say the sauce is "flavorful and mild--not obnoxiously sweet like you might imagine Chinese-food type sweet and sour". I would agree that it was mild and not at all sweet, but I found this to be its downfall. It was too mild and really not that flavorful. I will admit that like another reviewer, I didn't precook the pork, so maybe that is a critical step. We ate it, but I won't make it again.

Not your traditional sweet and sour dish. I used chicken. The family ate it but I would not make it again.
