Easy Sweet & Sour Pork Recipe

I got this recipe from my mother in law when I was first married.  It is quick and easy to make and our family enjoys it!  You can substitute chicken for the pork if you’d prefer.  We always use ham because I’ve got plenty of chicken recipes and this gives us something a little different!

Here’s the recipe:

Serves: 6

This is a quick and easy sweet and sour pork recipe!
  • 1 t. soy sauce
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1½ T cornstarch
  • dash of salt
  • ½ c. pineapple juice or water
  • 3 T cider vinegar
  • 2 T ketchup
  • Pineapple, onions, green peppers
  • Chopped ham

  1. Mix soy sauce, sugar, cornstarch, salt, pineapple juice, vinegar, and ketchup in a pan. I usually double these ingredients (except the sugar) so we have more sauce! Stir constantly over low heat until thickened and translucent.
  2. Add pineapple, onion, green peppers, and ham. Cook for 10 minutes until heated through.
  3. Serve over rice.
