Sweet and Sour Pork Stir Fry

Sweet and Sour Pork Stir Fry

Recipe from the January/February 2009 issue of Everyday Food (found here).
Mods made for a doubled recipe
:: 2 lbs boneless pork chops instead of pork tenderloin
:: Several hours prior to cooking, seasoned the sliced pork with salt, pepper, and garlic powder
:: 20 oz can of pineapple chunks
:: doubled marinade ingredients
:: 2 fresh broccoli crowns instead of frozen broccoli florets
:: 2 large bell peppers were sufficient even for a doubled recipe
:: green parts of scallions only

While the sweet and sour sauce doesn’t taste like the ones served in restaurants, it is still quite good. I think it is a little off because I can taste a hint of the rice vinegar; Hubby thinks maybe adding sugar would have helped. The rice vinegar taste did go away completely the following day, though. Next time we will probably experiment with the sauce, but we were definitely pleased with this recipe because the flavor was good and it came together relatively quickly. We also liked having our meat and veggies all together in one dish. Yay, a winner!

    ditto on one dish meals. makes it so much easier!!
    p.s. cooking the sauce slightly longer to cook off the vinegar taste? or cutting down the vinegar amount? i don’t like that much vinegar either!
