Recipe Notes
  • Barbara used a yellow pepper in her dish but says a green or red pepper would work just as well. Her family prefers the flavor of yellow peppers but a green or red pepper would definitely add a bit of color to the dish.
  • Canned pineapple chunks or tidbits can be used.  Or, if you have the pineapple rings on hand, use those and cut them into smaller pieces.
  • Don't discard the drained pineapple juice; you'll need it for the sweet and sour pork stir fry sauce.
  • Add enough water to the pineapple juice so that you have 3/4 cups liquid total.
