Sweet and Sour Pork

This is one of my favorite sweet and sour recipes. I got it from my sweet sis-in-law Natalie. She does it with meatballs below which are yummy but I like it with pork tenderloins too. I love it!


Marinate for pork
1/2 C soy sauce
1/2 C honey
1 tea garlic
1/4 C brown sugar
1/2 tea pepper
Soak 2 pork tenderloins in marinate for 3 hours or over night. Place tenderloins in baking dish and pour marinate on top, sprinkle an additional 1/4 C brown sugar on top and bake 350 40-45 minutes.

Sweet and Sour Sauce
1 1/2 C brown sugar
3 Tbl corn starch
1 lg can pineapple chunks/tidbits
1 C vinegar
3 Tbl soy sauce
1 green & red bell pepper diced

Mix brown sugar & corn starch together, set aside. Mix pineapple, vinegar, soy sauce, heat to boil then add brown sugar & corn starch. Stir constantly, let thicken then diced bell peppers, let simmer for 5 minutes then garnish pork or add meatballs and serve with rice. NOTE: sometimes I double the sauce.

VARIATION
Meatballs (beef or turkey)
1 lb lean hamburger (or ground turkey)
1/2 C bread crumbs
1/2 C milk
2 T onion
1 tea salt
1 egg

Mix together well and roll into 20 meatballs. Bake 350 for 20 minutes & turn over for another 20 min.
