Sweet and Sour Oriental Pork Crock pot Freezer Meal Gluten Free

400 grams diced lean boneless pork                  

1 kg frozen oriental style vegetables
1 19 oz. can pineapple chunks, including juice
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup vinegar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 tablespoons cornstarch - see notes
2 teaspoons oil

Place raw diced pork into bottom of crock pot.  Place frozen vegetables on top.  In 2 cup measurer mix together the remaining ingredients.  Pour over vegetables.  Cover crockpot and cook on Low for 10 hours or on high for 4-5.  Serve over rice.  This makes 6 generous servings.  .
  • For 6 adults cook 2 cups brown rice in 4 cups water.  There is enough topping and rice for 6-7 adults.
  • I used raw pork loin from Costco.  The kids thought it was chicken :).
  • My sauce was not quite thick enough so I stirred in one tablespoon mixed with a little cold water into the crock pot about 15 minutes before supper.  You could keep out a little juice and the cornstarch and add it at the end if you prefer.  I have increased the cornstarch in the recipe to reflect this.
  • I used peanut oil as that is my oil of choice with stir frys - I find it gives a nice flavour. 
  • To make freezer meals have large zippered freezer bags on counter and add all ingredients to the bag doubling or tripling recipe as desired.  I would leave bag in fridge overnight before placing in crock pot in the morning so it is frozen but not a solid brick.
