    Made this for friends we had over for dinner and I was embarrassed. It was not good. The "sauce" was not tasty. I wish I could describe what about it was not good. I guess the flavors just did not blend well. Nobody at the table liked it. Very disappointed.

    This was bad. It sounds good on paper, but don't be fooled. It didn't make much of a sauce, and it was too bitter for me (vinegar maybe?). The broccoli disintegrated and was unrecognizable. If I were to make it again (which I won't). I would put the broccoli in for the last hour and a half or so.

    @ Everyone, I'm forwarding your comments to our chefs so we can get this fixed! I can see where there would have been a problem as there really wasn't any sweetness (except from the tomato soup) to balance the acidity of the vinegar and the saltiness of the soy. Stay tuned for a revised version, and thank you so much for your feedback!

    All, first I want to apologize that this recipe did not work out for many of you. Here at Food on the Table we strive to carefully proof read, test, and edit our recipes before making them public to the users. But even after checking and double checking sometimes typos still get through or directions may seem unclear despite our best efforts. This is also complicated by the hundreds of user recipes added directly to the website daily. With your help and feedback as users, we continue to grow and become better. But regarding this specific recipe, I have reviewed it and edited it a bit. Anonymous, I agree with you that a vegetable like broccoli does not tend to hold up well in the long cooking required by using a crock-pot. Vegetables such as potatoes and carrots hold up to the long cooking method, however, vegetables like broccoli and tomatoes should be added to the crock-pot in the last 45-60 minutes of cooking. This information was originally left out of the directions, but I have edited this recipe to include these directions. As far as the sauce, most sweet and sour recipes use pineapple juice or brown sugar to create the 'sweet' element as the 'sour' comes from a vinegar. The original version of this recipe had the sour element, the vinegar, but was missing the sweet flavor. For the version above I added brown sugar to add the sweetness. You could also substitute the water in this recipe with pineapples juice or chicken broth to add additional flavor. If you have any additional questions please feel free to let us know.

    Hay, I'm more than willing to step up and be a tester for you guys--but sine I'm not much of a pork fan, I'll do it with boneless chicken breasts. Check back for results later this afternoon... (I've got everything on hand except for broccoli, so a quick shopping trip is in order.

    Anonymous, thank you for your positive comments and honest opinion. We are constantly trying to improve and grow the site. As I mentioned above our recipes are edited, developed and proof read by chefs however since one of our unique site features is allowing you as the user to upload your own recipes, we sometimes struggle to try and review these recipes before they reach other users. Since there are hundreds of user recipes added daily, we rely on user comments and ratings to help bring our attention to possible problem recipes. With most of us on tight budgets these days (myself included) I understand your frustration Manda and Anonymous about recipes not tasting good and wasting ingredients. Hopefully in the future we will have a way to sort recipes by rating or popular response as well as user recipes and chef approved recipes. It's exactly for reasons like this that we really value the feedback people give, and that it's really helpful for everyone when they rate the recipes they've made. If you still want to try a sweet and sour recipe here are several from the Food on the Table site that have great reviews and feedback: Sweet and Sour Smoked Sausage: (http://www.foodonthetable.com/recipes/11269-sweet-and-sour-smoked-sausage) OR Sweet 'n Sour Chicken: (http://www.foodonthetable.com/recipes/207894-sweet-n-sour-chicken) OR Sweet And Sour Pork Stir Fry: (http://www.foodonthetable.com/recipes/126804-sweet-and-sour-pork-stir-fry) OR Sweet And Sour Glazed Chicken: (http://www.foodonthetable.com/recipes/2913-sweet-and-sour-glazed-chicken)

    I actually really liked this a lot! It was a little simple and plain but I added some Franks to kinda spice it up a little bit.

    I apologize that I didn't get to do my recipe test on Saturday! Thought it would be a neat experiment, but I got hung up with preparations for a Cub Scout outing, instead!

    The changes that you made must have worked, this was a hit last night! I used thick cut pork chops and left them whole, putting sauce over them on the plate. I served them with brown rice and edemame (SP?) and everybody loved it. Made the sauce with V8 tomato soup, less sugar, and splenda lower sugar brown sugar 1/4 C to cut down on some of the sugar but still get the sweetness and flavor.

    I made this today and it was HORRIBLE. We took the chops out of the tomato juice, rubbed them with garlic and fried them, then they were just ok. I can't even give this one star.

    We served over rice and with fresh beans. Made it again for our Sunday extended family dinner and they all loves it too.

    I really loved this recipe but I did make some changes. I added a cup of Target brand frozen grilled peppers, 1/2 cup onions and 3/4 can dole pineapple tidbits. I used the juice from the can for part of the water. My family loved it. I did not put the broccoli in it though, it just didn't sound good so we served it on the side.

    I the last hour of cooking I thickened the sauce by putting about a cup of sauce in a bowl and adding about a cup of flour. I whisked it until it was smooth and then added it back to the crock pot, blending well. I served it over rice and everyone loved it! Definitely adding it to my recipe box!!!!

    This doesn't taste sour at all but has excellent flavor. I would consider skipping the broccoli and rice and serving it on a bun as a shredded pork slider. Yum!
