Slow Cooker Sweet and Sour Pork

I put this dish together using whatever I had in my pantry – but of course I needed it to taste sweet and sour. If you don’t want to use a slow cooker, simply cook it in a pot on the stove, covered and on low.


  • 500g diced pork
  • 440g can, pineapple pieces (don’t drain)
  • 1 x Green Pepper (or a handful of green beans, or green vegetables of any kind really)
  • 1 brown onion, quartered
  • 1 medium carrot, sliced
  • 3 TBSP Brown sugar
  • ¼ cup Cider Vinegar or White Wine Vinegar
  • 4 TBSP tomato sauce
  • 2 TBSP soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 TBSP Cornflour + 2 TBSP Water (to thicken later if necessary)


  1. In your slow cooker combine the pineapple juice (save the pieces for later), the brown sugar, vinegar, tomato sauce, soy sauce and 1/2 cup water.
  2. Stir to combine.
  3. Next add your pork, pineapple pieces, green pepper (or beans), brown onion, and carrot.
  4. Give it one final mix and then turn the slow cooker on.
  5. Cook on HIGH for 3-4 hours, or on LOW for 6-8 hours

If necessary, you may want to thicken up with some corn flour and cold water. Serve with rice or mashed potato.
