Excellent recipe! Found it in my Joy of Cooking cookbook years ago. I've made a couple of adjustments to suit my family's tastes. Original recipe can be found on page 480.

This was simple to make yet very tasty. I will definately make it again. I added a couple gloves of garlic to the oil to brown the pork and tossed in a handful of walnuts with the pineapple. I served it over brown rice. Hubby raved over it.

Made this recipe as stated, tasty and easy to make. I used half a green pepper and half a red pepper. Served with steamed rice. Love this type of sweet and sour, thanks for posting.

I just adore Sweet and Sour Pork and this would have to be the best recipe I have tried. I have made it several times now and it is always delicious. I also find that it is a very easy recipe to whip up after work. Not a lot to do once it is underway. I originally thought that the cooking time was a bit long, however it certainly ensures that the meat is tender. Delicous! Thank you Carol :) for posting a 'true gem'.
