Sweet and Sour Pork Stir-Fry from my Healthy Eating One-Pot Cookbook

As a kid, sweet and sour meatballs were one of my favorite dinners. I brought my mom’s sweet and sour sauce into the twenty-first century using fresh pineapple and adding ginger and honey. I further transformed it into a stir-fry sauce for easy week- night dinners. This stir-fry is substantial enough to stand on its own but is also great served over rice.
