Ingredients

  • 1 20 oz can pineapple chunks
  • 2 Tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • 1 chicken bouillon cube
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 pepper cubed (green, yellow or red)
  • 3/4 pound boneless pork shoulder or cubed pork loin or center cut pork chops cubed

Instructions

  • Drain pineapple, reserving the juice.
  • Add water to the reserved pineapple juice to make 3/4 cup total.
  • Add cornstarch, soy sauce, honey, chicken bouillon, garlic and black pepper to pineapple juice; set aside.
  • Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  • Cook pork and peppers, stirring constantly until pork is not longer pink.
  • Add the pineapple juice mixture and pineapple, and cook until thickened and bubbly, continuing to stir constantly.

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.
