Ingredients

  • pounds pork loin cubed
  • ¾ cup flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 can pineapple chunks 14.5 ounces
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • ½ cup white vinegar
  • ½ cup pineapple juice
  • 3-4 tablespoons soy sauce
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 small green pepper
  • ½ cup thinly sliced onion
  • 4 cups steamed rice

Instructions

  • Mix the flour and ½ teaspoon salt together. Coat the pork in the flour mixture. Sauté pork in the vegetable oil until the pork is tender, about 8-10 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside.
  • Drain pineapple, reserve syrup. Combine brown sugar and cornstarch. Add pineapple syrup, pineapple juice, vinegar, soy sauce and salt. Bring to a boil. Cook and stir until sauce thickens (about 3-4 minutes). Add pineapple, green pepper and onion. Cook for 2-3 minutes more. Add the pork to the sauce mixture. Serve over rice.

Notes

You can substitute fresh pineapple for the canned version, but you'll need to make a syrup with the pineapple juice. The canned pineapple works just fine.
