Sweet and Sour Pork with Cabbage

Pat Duran


This recipe was given to me by my friend in Michigan who uses her fresh cabbage from the garden. I think the sweet and sour is a Campbell Soup Recipe, not sure..but the addition of the cabbage is her idea..It's quick and easy and very tasty and a nice change from rice or pasta...give it a try and judge for yourself.
