1. In a snaplock bag, add all ingredients and freeze.

2. Remove from the freezer the night before so it defrosts overnight.

3. Place ingredients in a slow cooker and cook for 5-6 hours on low.

4. If there is quite a bit of liquid, thicken with 2 Tbsp flour mixed with a small amount of water and stir through, cook on high for 10-15 mins to thicken up. Add more flour/water mix if needed.

5. Serve your sweet and sour pork with rice and steamed carrots.


  • For tender, evenly cooked pork, be sure to flip the pork over once as it cooks.
