    NavyDoc13's Note:

    This is one of the most popular dish on our menu...right up there with General Tso's. The sauce in our version is not super sweet so adjust the amount of sugar to your taste.

      This recipe was recommended by Chef #482376. Great recipe. The only change I made was to omit the brown sugar and ketchup, and stir fry the pork in a little olive oil rather than deep fry it to make it lighter. Thanks for posting. :)

      This recipe made it into book#234156! FANTASTIC!!!! This tastes exactly like the sweet and sour pork that I order at my favorite Chinese restaurant. I was surprised by how easy it was to prepare! I'm anxious to try this again using chicken. You've just got to try this recipe. It's absolutely delicious. :)
