On Thursday I hosted dinner for my son’s 26th birthday. We invited his grandparents, father and younger brother to join us. Since they aren’t people I see very often it is always wonderful to spend time with them.
For dinner I served a boneless pork roast with roasted Rosemary. It was a really big roast, so after everyone had their fill there was about one-quarter of the original cut left. I’m not a fan of left overs because they usually taste as good as they sound “left over”. Pork is always the expection, I love left over pork with mashed potatoes and gravy but this time I deviated from the norm and did something completely different. I made Sweet and Sour pork out of the left overs. It was so easy and delicious I thought I’d pass it on.
Sweet & Sour Pork
3/4 lb. left over pork, sliced or cubed
1 small can of Mandarin oranges with juices
1 can Pineapple chunks with juice
1 small yellow or green pepper cut into strips
Sprinkle in match stick carrots
1/4 cup Water
1/4 cup Catsup
1/4 cup Vinegar
6 tsp. Sugar
2 tsp. Worchester Sauce
1 tsp. Soy Sauce

Combine all ingredients (except the cornstarch and 2 tbs. Water) and simmer until thoroughly heated. Add the cornstarch to the 2 tbs. water and add to other ingredients stir until desired thickness. Serve over a bed of rice.
