Attention Family! I've been saying it for years, now I am preparing you for when it happens, I am retiring from cooking in less than 5 years. The only thing I will make is my morning coffee, and that is only because I am too lazy to get dressed and go out for it!

Party Pork Barbeque

This recipe is from Grandma Katie.  I haven't got a clue why it is called Party Pork Barbeque, it should be something like Sweet and Sour Pork, but its not.  You can really stretch this by adding more veggies and pineapple, or more pork.  Cook plenty of rice to serve it over and you should have some for leftovers!

Party Pork Barbeque
1 to 2 pounds lean pork
1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 vegetable oil
1 large onion
1 bell pepper
3 stalks celery
3 carrots
3/4 cup catsup
2 tbsps mustard
1 large can pineapple chunks or tidbits in pineapple juice
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
Wow, it looks like a lot of ingredients, but it is an easy recipe.  Put the flour and spices in a lunch size paper bag or gallon ziploc bag, close the top and shake to combine.  Cut the pork into bite size pieces, drop them into the flour mixture.  Close the bag of pork and flour, shake well to coat the pork with the flour mix.  Add the oil to a large skillet and let it get hot.  Add the pork, cook over medium heat, throw out the bag with flour mix.  Keeping an eye on the pork, start cutting the veggies into bite size pieces and add to skillet.  When pork is browned and veggies have cooked for 5 or so minutes, add the remaining ingredients, including the juice from the can of pineapple.  Cover and let this cook for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Start the rice, set the table, make tea, start a load of laundry. And there you have it, dinner!
