Sweet and Sour Pork

1-1/2 pounds pork, cut in 1 inch chunks
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup Bisquick
2/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 tablespoon paprika
1 can pineapple tidbits, drain (save the liquid)
2 cups liquid (saved juice and water)
2 or 3 drops red food coloring (to make it look like the take out version. Could omit if desired)
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup vinegar
1 cup green pepper strips
1/2 cup onion, sliced
2 medium tomatoes, cut into chunks
Sprinkle pork with salt and coat with egg, then Bisquick.  Fry until brown.  Drain and set aside.  Combine sugar, cornstarch and paprika, 2 cups liquid, soy sauce and vinegar.  Cook until mixture boils, then boil 1 minute.  Mixture will get thick.  Add green pepper, and onion and cook until vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes.  Add pineapple and tomatoes and heat through.  Add pork and stir well.  Server over a bed of hot cooked rice.
