Stir Fry Sweet & Sour Pork or Chicken or Shrimp

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Pierre Dance

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.
