Pork, Red Beets and Pickles in a brown sauce

There are lots of memories I have from our recent cruise and some of them are related to food.  No Kidding!!! so I am trying out one of them from memory.  I took a picture of this meal and remembered the flavor and crunchy pickles intermingled with red beets and stir fry pork.  I think it is similar to the one I had there.  I'll show you the two pictures and you can compare.  My only change I'd make to my recipe is add a bit more sugar otherwise it was mighty good for a first time try.  Here is my recipe and pictures.  I'll show the pictures first.  Enjoy!! 

Happy Cooking!!!!!

I'd like it a  little darker in the gravy area..I'll add more gravy master for color.
