I love sweet and sour pork, don't you? But I'm an uninspired cook. If I'm going to make something, I'm into quick and easy - it can't take too much time or work or dirty too many dishes (just one pan is best!). If you're like me and want to make easy sweet and sour pork recipe, here's all you have to do:
In a large skillet, brown 1 1/2 pounds boneless pork, cut into 1/2-inch cubes, in 1 tablespoon vegetable oil.
Mix together and pour over the pork:
- the juice only from 1 can (20 ounces) pineapple chunks (save the chunks for later)
- 3/4 cup water
- 1/4 cup vinegar
- 1 T. soy sauce
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 t. salt
Cover and simmer about 15 minutes.
- 1/2 onion, sliced
- 5 or 6 carrots, sliced
Cover and simmer about another 10 minutes.
Mix together until smooth:
- 2 T. cornstarch
- 2 T. water
Stir into pork/vegetable mixture and cook until it thickens up nicely.
- 1 green pepper, sliced
- the pineapple chunks you set aside earlier
Simmer about 5 minutes.
Serve over hot cooked rice. Yum!!!
