Delicious. Added zucchini and snow peas and used apple cider vinegar instead of rice vinegar. Such an easy recipe and yummy to boot.

Sweet & Sour Ground Pork Stir Fry Haiku: "Too tangy for me, but husband and daughter liked. Just wasn't for me." Something about this stir-fry using ground pork, rather than cut-up pieces of pork loin or chop, made it feel too casserole-ey, like I needed a spoon to eat it, and no way could I have gotten ground pork crumblies and veggies and rice onto chopsticks. The overall taste and texture just didn't do it for me.

Very yummy. Family loves it

My family loved it. I added Kale to it. I think you could mix about any veggies in it and the flavor will mask most of them. So if you have a hard time getting your kiddos to eat green stuff you could pack it in here and it wouldn't hurt it. However, I might try cutting back on the sugar and see if I can get the same flavor results.

I didn't have any Brocolli but had all the other ingredients. I did use some corn starch to thicken it after cooking. It was delicious over rice. I also added some chili oil to spice it up a bit.

It's as good as it looks

Due to food allergies we had to modify slightly, using different vegetables. We used sliced pork chops (didn't have enough for everyone to have one). The sauce was good though a little tangy, so we will make again, modifying the vinegar and ketchup quantities and also make more sauce as it thickened with cooking. We like extra sauce on our rice!

Yum! Used peas instead of peppers because that is what I had on hand, but overall a very tangy, sweet, exciting dinner for so few ingredients. (And yes, I was dubious about the catsup, but it works so well in Asian cooking because it touches all the tastes.)
