Sweet Sour Pork





Here is a tasty recipe for sweet sour pork, using fresh boneless pork loin, cubed.

This is such a great recipe to make from a fresh boneless loin pork roast.

If you bought a large pork loin, then you can slice and cube some of it off the end for this excellent recipe. 2 3/4" slices will be about 3/4 lbs.

You can also use this recipe as a leftover pork roast recipe or for a leftover ham recipe. It also freezes very well for later use.

Often I will cook a larger amount of mixed rice, then make up smaller meals of rice and this sweet sour pork recipe for the freezer to be used at a later time.

The recipe will make 4-6 servings.
