Sweet and Sour Pork

Sweet and sour pork is a quick stir fry dinner, full of fresh vegetables and breaded pork. It’s relatively easy to make, too, which is always a plus in my book. Hopefully, in your book, too.

We love mixing it up and trying new ones. Part of my new year’s resolution is to try to utilize more of my cookbooks and magazines, so the moment I saw this sweet and sour pork recipe, I had to try it!

I ripped the recipe out (as per my new organization process) and added it to the pile.

My thoughts on the sweet and sour pork recipe:

Until I made the sweet and sour pork, I had never eaten a sweet and sour anything. After trying this dish, I’m not sold. I didn’t love love this one from Food Network magazine, but with amount of recipes in each issue, there are bound to be a few we don’t love. It was a meal, and I packed a ton of veggies in without much prep-work or time wasted, but I won’t be making this one again. Win some, lose some.

Just a quick note about cooking the pork...the recipe is correct...in the initial fry, you're only just browning the pork...it then sits on the side and the cooking process is completed when you add it back into the wok by simmering in the sauce...

also, yes, this is nothing like the "traditional" sweet & sour sauce you normally see in take-out restaurants (what I like to refer to as tourist-style chinese food) which is a nasty concoction that is mainly an excessive amount of breading with an unnaturally neon red sauce...ugh...

one thing that doesn't make sense to me is using low-sodium soy sauce yet adding salt...uhhhh, what?

btw, feel free to ask if ya have any chinese food questions...just don't ask me to make chop suey...heheh
