Slow Cooker Sweet & Sour Pork As I sat down to whip out this recipe, my cat Marty decided the drapes would make an excellent jungle gym. Of course when he got to the top and couldn’t figure out how to get back down, Mr. Acrocat wasn’t quite so talented. See Marty in action here.

So Marty has been rescued and I can get back to describing this mouthwatering meal that even the teenager liked!

This recipe is based on Coleen’s Sweet & Sour Pork recipe on her blog. I did have to make some changes to suit our tastes. My way is below or visit Coleen and try the original.

For the hubby I added the onions and green peppers. He really likes both and if a recipe can use them, I always add them.

SELECTIVE EATING: I omitted the crushed pineapple because no one in our house likes it. Instead of pineapple, I added 6 ounces of pineapple juice. I buy the six pack of Dole Pineapple juice cans for sweet & sour recipes. See example below.

Also, I kept out a portion of the meat for myself before throwing it back in with my hubby’s peppers and onions.
