9/17/2014-I made this recipe for our dinner tonight and it turned out perfect. I started the prep this morning. I used 3 thin pork chops (because that was what I had on hand), trimmed them of fat and bone and cut them into bite size pieces; then I marinated them in the refrigerator for rest of the day. After that I prepped the veggies, cooked them and set them aside for rest of the day. Then I made the sauce; I went ahead and added the pineapple and juice, but left out the veggies, thickened the sauce and set it aside. All of that prep took me about 45 minutes, but the meat was ready to cook, the sauce was made and the veggies were ready to add to the sauce. At dinner time, it took me about 20 minutes to heat the (peanut) oil and fry the pork. While the pork was cooking I added the veggies to the sauce and prepared some white rice. Everything came together at the same time, quickly and easily. I did not add the fried pork to the sauce because we prefer it crispy. The only change I made to the recipe was to cut the amount of sugar in the sauce from 3/4 cup down to 1/2 cup, and it was plenty. I served the sauce over the fried pork and rice and it was fantastic. This dish was the best Sweet and Sour Pork I've ever made. The recipe is excellent and not difficult. I will definitely make this again. The sauce was absolutely wonderful and tasted of restaurant quality, the pork was crispy and the veggies not overdone. This recipe is a keeper and I encourage everyone to give it a try!
