Sweet and sour pork

Sweet and sour sauce can be poured right out of a jar, but it's so easy to make that why would you? This way you can vary the spices to suit your family's taste! I've got a much spicier version of sweet and sour sauce here for Chicken, but they are interchangeable.

Sweet and Sour Pork

1 lb pork roast, cut into cubes
1/2 fresh pineapple, cut into cubes
Vegetable oil

1 T sherry
1 t soy sauce
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 t fresh ginger, minced
2 T tomato paste
1/3 c cider or wine vinegar
1/4 c sugar
1 c chicken broth
1 T cornstarch in 2T broth
1 T sesame oil

Heat the oil in your wok and fry the pork cubes. Set them aside and wipe out the oil. Add the sauce ingredients through the broth and bring to a low boil. Stir in the cornstarch mixture, the sesame oil, and the pineapple. Heat through and return the pork cubes to reheat. Serve with sticky rice.
