Sweet & Sour Pork

Sweet and Sour Pork (gluten-free) | The Baking Beauties

Well, thankfully our electricity was on all night, and we woke up to a nice warm house. Thank goodness for our Manitoba Hydro employees! Working all hours in crazy weather to get everyone up and running again. I know there were some without power longer than we were, but I sure hope everyone has electricity again this morning!

Today’s recipe is another one submitted by my Mom. It is for a Sweet & Sour Pork. My family isn’t into eating pork, so I have very few pork recipes on this blog. If you’ve been looking for one…enjoy this one! :)

    Just in case people don't know, you should mention that you need to use a wheat-free soy sauce since normal ones contain wheat.
