Tonight’s Dinner

Ingredients

  • 1 spray cooking spray
  • 1 ½ pounds lean pork tenderloin, cut into thin strips
  • 15 ounces canned unsweetened pineapple chunks
  • ½ cup water
  • cup rice wine vinegar
  • ¼ cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • ½ teaspoon table salt
  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 medium green bell peppers, sliced
  • 1 small onion, sliced

Method

Heat a nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat.

Add pork and cook until golden brown, about 8 to 10 minutes; remove from skillet and set aside. Drain any remaining fat from skillet.

Drain pineapple chunks, reserving juice; set aside.

Combine water, vinegar, sugar, cornstarch, salt, soy sauce and reserved pineapple juice in a small bowl; add to skillet and cook until sauce is slightly thickened, about 2 minutes. Add pork; cook covered over low heat until meat is tender, stirring occasionally, about 30 minutes.

Add peppers, onion and pineapple chunks; cook 5 minutes. Serve over your choice of cooked rice. Yields about 1 cup of pork per serving.

Notes

Enjoy this Chinese favorite from the comfort of your home and without all the calories of the restaurant version. Quick tip: Keep the pork slightly frozen so it’s easier to slice into thin strips.

  1. Sounds good! I've never tried strips of pork tenderloin in stir fry before. We had a similar dinner tonight. Stir fried a bunch of veggies with pieces of chicken tenders. Added stir fry noodles. Thank you for sharing the recipe! :o)
