Sweet and sour pork recipe

22 Jul

Big hit with my six year old the other night!  Blogging a bit on the back burner with marathon training under way.  Also apparently the storm we had the other night knocked my computer off line and it really stumped the linguistic challenged employee’s at comcast.  Fred in “New Mexico” (i.e. outsourced to India) was baffled that my internet was out because he was unaware of any storms taking place in the midwest.  UUUUG-what the hell comcast, why are your IT phone service technicians not in country!  Why does this nonsense happen!  Call Michael Moore!

 This sweet and sour pork is made with pork loin, pineapple, light soy sauce, vinegar, onion, green pepper and red pepper, and rice!


  • 1 large can (20 ounces) pineapple chunks
  • 1/4 cup vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons light soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 pounds boneless pork loin, trimmed, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 large onion, cut in chunks
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, cut in chunks
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, cut in chunks
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • hot cooked rice


Drain juice from pineapple; pour juice in a Dutch oven. Add vinegar, soy sauce, salt, ginger, and 1/2 cup water; stir until smooth. Add pork and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 1 hour, or until meat is tender. Add onion, green pepper, red pepper, and pineapple chunks. Simmer 10 minutes longer, or until onion and peppers are just tender. Put cornstarch in a cup and stir in 3 tablespoons water. Stir into pork and juices; heat to boiling, reduce heat, and simmer the sweet and sour pork for 1 minute. Serve sweet and sour pork with rice.

      Before you try the recipe, please fix my internet as I am using my friends computer. I still do not have service.
      I care too-that I pay for a service I do not currently have.
