So Why Don’t I Cook More Often? Sweet and Sour Pork Recipe

. at . 2 comments

I just made Sweet & Sour Pork. It’s  for a potluck at the Christmas C.A.M.P. I am attending at Church later today. It was soooo easy, inexpensive (pork was on sale), fast and tasty.

So given all that, why don’t I cook more 0ften?

Below is the recipe. I modified it from my Sweet  & Sour Meatball recipe. Which I haven’t cooked in years!

·1 1/2 pounds boneless pork, sliced 1/2-inch thick

·1 tablespoon olive oil


·1 can (20 ounces) pineapple chunks in juice

·3/4 cup water

·1/4 cup vinegar

·2 tablespoon soy sauce

·1/4 cup brown sugar

·1/4 teaspoon salt


·2 tablespoons cornstarch

·2 tablespoons water


·1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion (Can use yellow onions or scallions)

·1 cup diced orange pepper (Can also use green, red or yellow)


Directions for sweet and sour pork

1.Cut pork about 1 inch long and 1 inch wide. Cook pork bits in oil in 400 degree oven, until lightly browned; drain. Or sauté in pan over medium heat until lightly browned; drain.

2.Drain pineapple; reserve juice.

3.Combine pineapple juice, 3/4 cup water, vinegar, soy sauce, brown sugar, and salt; pour over pork in skillet.
