Leftover Magic: Sweet & Sour Style Pork

Leftover Magic recipes attempt to show how to use up what you have in the refrigerator, without eating the same meal twice.

This particular recipe uses leftover teriyaki style pork. I used Smithfield Pork Sirloin, but any style will do. Other changes you might want to try are:
-- mandrin oranges & orange juice in place of the pineapple
-- subsitute any of the vegetables for another variety. Try zucchini, green beans, broccoli or eggplant.

Enjoy!Submitted by: DILBERTA
