    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'.

    This is the dish of my youth. Used cheap ol' pork too. The perfect amount of vinegar (cider of course) etc. I have to admit it seems sweet now days though. I really enjoyed it . Thanks

    This was good, but it seemed to be missing something. It was quick to fix, and that is always a plus! Thanks for sharing.

    My husband loved this and it really was good...but after about 3 bites it was WAY too sweet. We will make this again, but cut the sugar by at least half.

    Very authentic tasting sauce! I did decrease the brown sugar a bit and add a little more vinegar as one reviewer suggested as I knew we wouldn't like it real sweet. One of my new favorite recipes!
