Sweet and Sour Pork

Sweet and Sour is always a hit. Who doesn't like it? After all, it's like eating candy! My kids aren't a huge fan of peppers, but covered in the sauce they eat everything!2 lb. pork, cut into bite size chunks
2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. sugar
2 tsp. soy sauce
2 eg whites
4 green onions, chopped
1 cup cornstarch

Cut up the pork and place all the ingredients and the pork in a ziploc bag. Coat the meat really well. Refrigerate meat mixture at least 1 hour. Then add 1 cup cornstarch to the bag and coat the meat evenly. Let sit for 10 minutes to absorb some of the coating. Brown in oil in a frying pan until browned and meat is fully cooked. Do not overcook.

6 stalks celery, cut in chunks
2 medium green bell peppers
2 medium red bell peppers
Sugar to taste (approx. 1/2 tsp.)
salt to taste (approx. 1/4 tsp.)
1 tbsp. oil

Add oil to frying pan and saute the vegetables until crisp tender. Add meat and pour sauce mixture over the top. Add cornstarch and water mixture and simmer until thickened. Serve over rice.

2 cups water
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups sugar
2/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup ketchup
1 tsp. soy sauce
16 oz. can pineapple chunks, undrained

4 TBSP. cornstarch
1/2 cup water

Combine sauce ingredients (except the cornstarch and water) and bring to a boil. Pour over the meat and vegetables. Combine the water and cornstarch and slowly add to the meat and vegetables and simmer until thickened.
