Best I've Ever Had

I've tried to make other sweet & sour dishes before using other recipes and I haven't liked them. When my husband suggested this I was sceptical, but it turned out to be better than any sweet & sour dish I've ever had--even in restaurants. We eliminated the pineapple but it didn't take away from the taste.
