    This sounds so good. I am going to try it but since it will be just for me, I am going to cut the recipe in half. I hope it works. I love sweet and sour anything, well chicken, pork and I might try beef. Thank you for the recipe. Love your site.

    Can you put potatoes instead of pineapples ?

  3. I am making this tonight with chicken instead of pork, can’t wait to try it!

  4. Judy, I was the hero last night with this meal. We just had a Chinese restaurant close that served this kind of sweet and sour. It was the only place that we knew of that served the pork that ha no greasy batter. As it turned out this recipe was almost identical to our old place. My wife was ecstatic. Thanks so much.
