    Pierre Dance's Note:

    This is one of my all time favorites, in any of it's incarnations. It's from the little booklet that came with my first wok. I found it in a box of stuff I hadn't been into in years. It got me started on a stir fry binge. It's been fun to relive some of the fun I've had learning to stir fry. Like most stir fries this one's quick, easy, and delicious. Yield, prep, and cooking times are a guess.

      I tried this on my husband and he didnt like it so much. It wasnt "sweet" enough for him. I liked the flavors, but I found the cornstarch a bit overwhelming on the pork.

      I liked this sweet & sour dish and it smelled great when cooking it. I made it with pork loin chops and did add the chicken stock, but I think it would have been better to have left it out so the sauce was thicker and less diluted. Not my favorite sweet & sour, but it was still good. Thanks for sharing!

      This was terrific! I've tried other S&S recipes and some were way to sweet. This was just right. I made mine with pork and used cut up pork loin chops. They were a little on the tough side, so if others want to use pork, I would suggest to others to stick with the pork tenderloin you recommend. I didn't add the lemon juice, but used some of the pineapple juice instead. I didn't end up adding the chicken stock as I liked the thickness of the sauce and didn't want to thin it out any. I served this with jasmine rice.
