Sweet and Sour Pork

I made this version as a low calorie adaption of a higher fat content version where the pork was deep fried. The sauce is one of the best that I and many others have ever tasted. I recently took the original version to a Chinese dinner where it was a great hit. I made this tonight with what I had on hand, so feel free to add or eliminate your favorite vegetables as desired.
