Delicious. Added zucchini and snow peas and used apple cider vinegar instead of rice vinegar. Such an easy recipe and yummy to boot. Read More

Sweet & Sour Ground Pork Stir Fry Haiku: "Too tangy for me, but husband and daughter liked. Just wasn't for me." Something about this stir-fry using ground pork, rather than cut-up pieces of pork loin or chop, made it feel too casserole-ey, like I needed a spoon to eat it, and no way could I have gotten ground pork crumblies and veggies and rice onto chopsticks. The overall taste and texture just didn't do it for me. Read More

Yum! Used peas instead of peppers because that is what I had on hand but overall a very tangy sweet exciting dinner for so few ingredients. (And yes I was dubious about the catsup but it works so well in Asian cooking because it touches all the tastes.) Read More

This was very easy to make. I added seasoning salt to the ground pork. I didn't add carrots or bell pepper but it was tasty anyway. I used seasoned rice vinegar. I really liked the flavor of the sauce and will make this again. Read More

Due to food allergies we had to modify slightly using different vegetables. We used sliced pork chops (didn't have enough for everyone to have one). The sauce was good though a little tangy so we will make again modifying the vinegar and ketchup quantities and also make more sauce as it thickened with cooking. We like extra sauce on our rice!

I didn't have any Brocolli but had all the other ingredients. I did use some corn starch to thicken it after cooking. It was delicious over rice. I also added some chili oil to spice it up a bit. Read More
