Cookbook:Sweet and Sour
This is a simple sweet-and-sour dish that works well as an everyday meal, even with leftover meat. It is best served with rice, and perhaps also steamed vegetables. The sauce alone (no meat, cherries, or pineapple chunks) can be poured over rice or used as a dip for egg rolls.
