Sweet and Sour Pork

READY IN: 1hr 35mins
Recipe by Color Guard Mom

I got this recipe from my JC Penny/United Way Cookbook. It is absolutely wonderful! My hubby loves it. It's sweet but not too sweet and I love using the sauce over rice. Watch out though - it's a diet killer.

This was very very good and surprisingly easy :) The pork (I used 'bellypork', on the advice of my retired butcher DH, was very tender and tasty, and the sauce was magnificent. I served it over rice, and everyone loved this simple but delicious meal. i used brown rice, but when I make it again, I will use white, the better to sop up the sauce! Thanks, CGM!
