Sweet & Sour Pork

Sweet & Sour Pork | Delicious pork and a multitude of veggies mixed with pasta, of course!

I love sweet and sour chicken and pork - and generally any type of Asian stir fry. What is it about the combination of soy sauce, meat, and veggies that is so addictive? I've posted quite a few different kinds of stir frys, but they've all been recipes with rice. This one uses pasta and I LOVE that. I'm a pasta fiend :) This is right up my alley.

What you need:
  • 1 pkg. egg noodles or thin spaghetti
  • 1 pkg. pork chops, diced into bite size pieces
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 1/2 cup matchstick carrots (I couldn't find the prepackaged ones)
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • Sugar snap peas or broccoli florets
  • 1 small can pineapple chunks, reserve juice
  • Ground pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 2 tsp. white wine vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. reserved pineapple juice
  • 1 Tbsp. tomato puree
  • 1 Tbsp. flour
  1. Mix together soy sauce, vinegar, pineapple juice, tomato puree, and flour together. Set aside.
  2. Cook pasta; drain.
  3. Meanwhile, heat some oil in a wok and cook pork for 4 minutes.
  4. Add garlic, green onions, carrots, pepper, and peas/broccoli. Cook for 3 minutes.
  5. Add pineapple and sweet and sour sauce. Season with pepper and cook until slightly thickened.
  6. Add noodles and toss to coat. Serve immediately.
