Recipe 2 Spicy Sweet & Sour Pork
Recipe #2 Jan 10, 2010 For week 2, I decided to try a new recipe for Sweet & Sour Pork. I've made several versions using chicken, but not pork. I found this recipe at myrecipes.com It came from Cooking Light magazine. It was very easy to make and was so good. A huge hit with my family. I will be using this recipe again. (I'd give it an A).
