Yummy Sweet & Sour Pork recipe

Here is the recipe that I mentioned in an earlier post…it was from a Publix Family Style magazine a while back.  This is the stove-top method & my changes are noted – enjoy!

Sweet and Sour Pork
1.5 pounds lean pork stew meat or pork shoulder (**I used pork chops cut into cubes)
3 T all purpose flour
1/2 t salt or to taste (**I left this out)
1/4 t pepper or to taste
1 T Canola Oil
1 Cup chopped onion (**I used the already chopped up frozen ones – a whole bag)
5 medium Carrots cut into 1/2 inch chunks (**Again I used a bag of frozen sliced carrots)
1 14.5 oz. can diced tomatoes, undrained
1/4 c. Brown Sugar
1/4 c. Apple Cider Vinegar
1 T. worcestershire sauce
2 pouches precooked rice, heated to directions (**I used a box of wild rice)

  1. Add flour, salt and pepper to Ziploc bag.  Add pieces of pork and shake to coat.  Brown meat and onions in skillet with oil.
  2. Add undrained tomatoes, brown sugar, vinegar, 1/2 cup water, and Worchester sauce.  Simmer for about 10 min.
  3. Add carrots and continue to simmer for about 15-20 more minutes or until carrots are tender.
  4. Wisk together some flour & water (about 1/4 cup) to thicken & stir into pot.  Simmer until thick & bubbly.
  5. Serve over rice & enjoy!

And here is a picture of the original magazine page because it just looks so yummy – especially on a cold day like today!!
