    this was really great... VERY much like take out - and super easy to prepare. i didn't have any cornstarch so i doubled the amounts of flour in both instances which worked just fine (im not sure what the difference might have been - so im not sure if i missed out on some extra awesomeness). i also didn't have any wine vinegar so i subbed some apple vinegar (also fine). this is definitely more on the sour side of sweet and sour (which we prefer) - people wanting a sweeter sauce should definitely opt for sweetened pineapple (i used unsweetened). i cut my pork into long thin strips instead of cubes because thats the way my favorite take out place does it. once the sauce was done i mixed the pork back in to coat it with the sauce... and served it with garlic rice. thanks so much for this recipe (i wish i had taken a picture but we devoured the whole thing before i had a chance)

    This just wasn't as flavorful as I'd hoped. I added some soy sauce to the leftovers and this improved the taste. Sorry, but it wasn't the hit I'd hoped for.

    Yum yum! To save a few calories (and because I'm lazy) I didn't batter the pork, just sauteed it with a little seasoning. I also used a bag of pre-mixed veggies I found in my freezer. Even making this the lazy way, it was delicious! It got my 4, 2, and 1 year old kids to eat their veggies! The sauce is just awesome-- definitely a keeper.
