"This is a great slow cooker recipe given to me by my Mom. While not strictly authentic, it does have a great sweet and sour taste that goes so well with pork. Serve over cooked white rice. My kids all love it!!! Recipe can be doubled, and it freezes well." — AmyEckert

pork steak, cut into strips
onion, thinly sliced
1 (4.5 ounce) can
1 (8 ounce) can
1 1/2 teaspoons
distilled white vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoons
Here are my suggestions: double the sauce and add 1-2 cans pineapple, 4 carrots and a red or green pepper. (green pepper can add a lot of its own flavor so don't overdo it, half a pepper will do)
This was average. Nothing more than a low-grade barbecue sauce. I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts and put them in frozen. Definitely need to add something to this to make this more savory. My husband liked it though.
I made this tonight. Doubled the sauce. I also added a 20 oz can of pineapple chunks undrained. Only put in 2 tsp of salt (since doubled the recipe). I added some baby carrots, brocolli, red and yellow bell pepper strips and fresh mushrooms. Cooked everything for 4 hrs on high and it was done by dinner time. Quick and delicious! My toddler ate it up. I even had seconds. Thanks for a new addition to our dinner line up!
I added strips of raw cabbage - I'm sure that bagged coleslaw mix would work just as well. As well, when browning the pork, I put in about 3 tbsp. of balsamic vinegar. It gave it a little sweetness and my whole family loved it.
This is a great recipe that can be made with things that you generally keep on hand in your pantry. I read most of the reviews, and made the following changes: doubled the sauce, added pineapple and carrots, and eliminated the mushrooms. The only change I would make is to use a little less brown sugar, as I thought the sauce was a little on the sweet side, but otherwise, a nice, easy recipe that's ready for you when you get home!
i added green peppers in the beginning as well as hot chili oil, mirin, and cut the worchestershire in half and substitued soy sauce. another wonderful way to use the slow cooker!
FIrst of all, we had had prok the night before and so I felt that we should have chicken or something else. So, I used this recipe to the 'T' except used sliced chicken breasts.
When we sat down to dinner, my husband ---who does not like sweet and sour things--at all---said that this is definitely a 'keeper'!!
I think I brutalized the recipe but it appeared to still have turned out delicious. I didn't realize I had run out of tomato sauce, so I substituted with 2 oz tomato paste + 6 oz water + silent prayer. I also added broccoli, changed the onion bit to half an onion instead and added a handful or so of a frozen onion + green peppers + red peppers combination I had in the freezer. Everything played well together and I loved the results. I had been afraid that there might be a vinegary taste but it wasn't detectable at all. I'm almost afraid to try it with tomato sauce now! Cantonese? No. Yummy? Yes.
