Sweet and Sour Pork

Sweet and Sour Pork
This sweet and sour pork is a super easy dinner that would be great for a busy weeknight. It requires very little prep in the morning and when you come home from work, it will practically be done.

This doesn’t taste like a typical, bright red takeout sweet and sour but rather a tangy and slightly sweet healthy version. The Worcestershire sauce gives it a bit of depth and the vinegar gives it some zing while the pineapple juice and chunks give it a nice sweet flavor.  Serve it with brown rice and steamed broccoli to complete the meal.
