Don’t do the overly sweet take out – use your slow cooker and make Slow Cooker Sweet and Sour Pork! Way better than take out – and cheaper too!
I am always trying to come up with new ideas for the slow cooker. I like the flavors of asian inspired dishes simmering all day in there, so I decided to try this recipe for Slow Cooker Sweet and Sour Pork. Quite honestly, I would never order this at a Chinese restaurant because I think it’s TOO sweet and sticky for my taste – but I wanted to try it on my own – so here comes Sweet and Sour Pork! YUM!
A few notes…I left my green peppers in big half pieces because I didn’t want them to be over done. You could definitely cut them down but they will be more on the “overdone” side 🙂
I also used pre-cut pork (it wasn’t pricey!) it was cut pork loin (almost like pork stew meat). You could use the same, cut a pork loin yourself, or even use boneless pork chops and get the same yummy results – your choice!
