Sweet and Sour Pork III
November 11, 2006

Fantastic and "better than take-out" (so says my NYC take-out-raised husband). The only changes I make are to add carrots and use whatever color bell peppers are prettiest when I'm shopping. I also usually double this recipe for our family of five (plus leftovers for lunch, yay!) and so use a mix of peppers. Oh, and for the sauce I drain the pineapple (unsweetened) juice into a measuring cup, add a splash of maraschino cherry juice, then add water to bring it up to what the recipe calls for. Then I cook my sauce on the stovetop while I'm frying / stirfrying. Once it's slightly thickened I add the pineapple. But overall, this is a PERFECT recipe. Don't wimp out, deep fry the pork, everyone will be thrilled that you did! *Update* Now several years after my initial review I just wanted to add that two out of three of my kids request this as their birthday dinner every year. The whining/begging/wheedling starts about three weeks in advance! (I'm no slouch around the kitchen, but this is a recipe for when you feel like hanging in the kitchen for a bit, it definitely takes me about 2 hours.)
