Sweet and Sour Pork with Pineapple

Pineapple and red and green bell peppers make a colorful sweet and sour sauce for stir-fried pork.

Ingredients

Pork and Pineapple

  • 1 (20 ounce) can pineapple chunks in juice
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless center cut pork loin, trimmed of fat and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1/3 cup instant flour, such as Wondra
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil

Sauce and Vegetables

  • 2/3 cup reduced-sugar ketchup
  • 1/4 cup SPLENDA® Sugar Blend
  • 1/3 cup rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped onions
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped green bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped red bell pepper

Instructions

  1. Pork and Pineapple: Drain pineapple, reserving juice. Pour 1/4 cup of juice into 1-gallon zipper-lock plastic bag. Reserve remaining juice.
  2. To the bag, add soy sauce, garlic, ginger, and pork. Press air out of bag, seal, and refrigerate 3 to 4 hours. (Refrigerate remaining pineapple juice.)
  3. After marinating pork, combine flour, salt, and pepper in a large bowl.
  4. Remove pork from marinade to paper towels and pat dry. Reserve marinade. Add pork to flour mixture and toss until well-coated.
  5. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in large, deep non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add half of pork and cook until browned all over, 6 to 8 minutes.
  6. Remove and keep warm.
  7. Repeat with remaining oil and pork. Remove cooked pork to a plate.
  8. Sauce and Vegetables: Add reserved marinade to pan and simmer over medium-high heat 4 to 5 minutes.
  9. In a medium bowl, whisk ketchup, SPLENDA® Sugar Blend, vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil, and remaining pineapple juice.
  10. Pour into pan and simmer 2 to 3 minutes, scraping pan bottom to loosen any browned bits. Add onions and peppers and simmer 1 minute.
  11. Add pork and pineapple, reduce heat to medium, and simmer 4 to 6 minutes, or until vegetables are crisp-tender, and sauce is slightly thickened.
