I used to looove sweet n sour chicken. I’d have it for lunch in college a couple times a week! I saw this recipe for sweet n sour pork recently and thought it would be nice to try something different. And bonus! It’s a Weight Watchers recipe.
1.5 lbs. lean, boneless pork loins, cubed
8 oz. can pineapple chunks, undrained
1 red (or green) bell pepper, chopped
3 tbsp. brown sugar
1/2 tsp. ginger
1/4 cup vinegar
3 tbsp. soy sauce
3 tbsp. water
2 tbsp. corn starch
Combine pork, pineapple, bell pepper, brown sugar, ginger, vinegar and soy sauce in your crockpot. Mix well. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours. We cooked ours on low for 8 hours and the pork was a bit dry, but not too bad.
About 5 minutes before serving, combine water and cornstarch until well blended. Mix into pork mixture. Cover and cook on high for 5 minutes, or until sauce is thickened.
Serve over rice. Makes 4 servings.
