This sauce is as good as any Sweet and Sour sauce I have ever had in any Chinese restaurant. This recipe works wonderfully with leftover pork roast and I once prepared shrimp using this recipe and it was great. Sometimes I make the sauce alone to use with frozen eggrolls for a really easy meal. I love sweet and sour dishes and this is the best one I have found as well as being very easy to prepare from ingredients on hand. (Prep time includes time needed to let meat sit, which is key to this recipe)
