Sweet and Sour pork.
Who does not love this classic Chinese American comfort dish. 
I wanted that for dinner but all the sugar in the store-bought sauce can be used as a dessert topping.
Even with many chefs making clean versions the taste was not what I remember.  
The 1970 real ingredient is difficult to find. So a substitution from the Mediterranean grocery is just what I was missing.  Pomegranate molasses! 
Classic Grenadine syrup was often used in the dish for that lovely red color. 
The sauce first:
1 T grated ginger
1 clove garlic
2 T ketchup 
1 T Pomegranate molasses 
1.5 C broth or stock
4 T soy sauce
2 T apple cider vinegar 
1T starch tapioca or corn 
Salt, pepper, and hot peppers to taste.
Make the sauce ahead of time to make any changes you like.  For kids I leave out the garlic and hot chilies, but introduce them when they get older.
The vegetables are easy, Bell pepper,  onion, pineapple,  but I add celery and green onion. Throw in some carrot. 
Fresh is better or frozen.

Thank you all who continued to support and enjoy the little cafe. Unfortunately business was too sporadic and just not enough.

Yes. We miss you. Praying you will find a productive outlet for your passion and gifting

I'm sorry I didn't get by one last time before you closed!

I didn't remember until I seen this post just now that I had a dream last night that I was trying to find your restaurant and couldn't find it. It was no longer at the location downtown! I was so sad and now this is true. 😟
