Serves six

2 pounds pork tenderloin – cut into small cubes
1 – 28 oz. can diced pineapples
6 TBS pineapple juice
6 TBS rice wine vinegar
3 TBS soy sauce
6 TBS sugar
3 TBS ketchup
1 TBS cornstarch

1 medium red bell pepper – chopped
1 TBS grated ginger
6 garlic cloves – minced

Rinse and pat dry the pork. Heat a large skillet with 2 TBS of the oil. Brown the pork in batches – making sure to cook it through – and set aside. Wipe the pan.

While the pork is browning, whisk together the pineapple juice, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, ketchup, sugar and cornstarch. Set aside.

Add the remaining oil to the pan and heat. Add the onion, bell pepper, ginger and garlic cloves. Cook for about 4 minutes – until vegetables are softened but still crisp. Add the pineapple chunks and pork – mix well. Cook for an additional 3 to 4 minutes.

Add the liquid to the pan. Mix well and allow sauce to thicken. Serve with rice and enjoy!

    Hi Maryanne, Can I use pork-loin instead of pork tenderloin? I always buy pork-loin at B-J’s. Is there much difference between them? I really enjoy your web site and your great recipes.

    Hi Louise!
    Yes you can! Pork loin might be a little less tender but it will work perfectly well. Just make sure to trim off the excess fat if you find any. Thanks so much for your comment! I really appreciate your support. Take care!
