Spicy Sweet-and-Sour Pork
American-takeout-style Chinese food, with its thick, sweet sauces and tender meats, makes great comfort food. This simple dish coats pork, green pepper, and pineapple in a gooey, cornstarch-thickened sauce with a nice kick of heat. Serve with white or brown rice, or, better yet, fried rice.
