Crockpot-Sweet & Sour Pork

Plain and simple – this recipe is a must to add to your meal plan! This recipe reminds me of the Spicy Rice Bowl – Pick Your Meat, but with a twist on ingredients. For any pineapple lovers, you can always add a can of pineapple or freshly chopped pineapple to the ingredients.

INGREDIENTS YOU WILL NEED:

  • 1 can of tomato sauce (or homemade sauce)
  • 1/4 cup of rice vinegar
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 3 TBSP brown sugar
  • 1 TBSP soy sauce
  • 3 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 TBSP ground ginger
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 red pepper, chopped
  • 1.5 pounds of pork shoulder, cubed

WHAT TO DO:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a crockpot with the pork shoulder added last. My initial plan for dinner tonight were barbeque country spare ribs. I make the ribs by placing them in a crockpot with enough water to cover the bottom; cook for 6-8 hours on low. I add barbecue sauce when served since my children prefer to dip the pork in sauce. Once the ribs were cooked, I decided to debone and cube the country spare ribs to try this sweet & sour recipe. Thus, for this recipe, I used country spare ribs instead of a pork shoulder.
  2. Cook on high for 3 to 4 hours OR on low for 6 to 8 hours.
  3. Serve over brown rice.
