This is a great slow cooker recipe given to me by my Mom. While not strictly authentic, it does have a great sweet and sour taste that goes so well with pork. Serve over cooked white rice. My kids all love it!!! Recipe can be doubled, and it freezes well.

Here are my suggestions: double the sauce and add 1-2 cans pineapple, 4 carrots and a red or green pepper. (green pepper can add a lot of its own flavor so don't overdo it, half a pepper will do)

I made this tonight. Doubled the sauce. I also added a 20 oz can of pineapple chunks undrained. Only put in 2 tsp of salt (since doubled the recipe). I added some baby carrots, brocolli, red and yellow bell pepper strips and fresh mushrooms. Cooked everything for 4 hrs on high and it was done by dinner time. Quick and delicious! My toddler ate it up. I even had seconds. Thanks for a new addition to our dinner line up!

I added strips of raw cabbage - I'm sure that bagged coleslaw mix would work just as well. As well, when browning the pork, I put in about 3 tbsp. of balsamic vinegar. It gave it a little sweetness and my whole family loved it.
