Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place pork in a freezeable container, then partially freeze the meat (this makes it easier to slice thinly).
  2. Thinly slice into bite-size strips.
  3. Stovetop method, meat step: heat a skillet over high temperature, then add the cooking oil and sesame oil; saute the sliced pork, stirring often, until no longer pink, about 2 minutes.
  4. Microwave method, meat step: preheat a 6 1/2-inch microwave browning dish on 100% power for 4 minutes; add the cooking oil and sesame oil to browning dish and swirl to coat the dish; add the sliced pork and microwave, covered, on 100% power for 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 minutes or till pork is no longer pink, stirring every 30 seconds.
  5. Stovetop method, vegetable step: add the carrot, sliced green pepper, and green onions and cook, stirring often, until vegetables are crisp-tender, about 5 minutes.
  6. Microwave method, vegetable step: Stir in sliced carrot, green pepper strips and sliced green onion and microwave, covered, on 100% power for 2 to 3 minutes more or till the vegetables are crisp-tender; drain off liquid.
  7. Stovetop method, sauce step: in a saucepan, stir together the brown sugar, cornstarch, water, red wine vinegar, soy sauce, and ground ginger; heat over medium-high until thickened and bubbly, then add the pineapple and cook, stirring, for about 1 minute or until pineapple is heated through.

Microwave method, sauce step: In a 2-cup measure stir together the brown sugar, and cornstarch; stir in the water, red wine vinegar, soy sauce and ground ginger; microwave, uncovered, on 100% power for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes or until thickened and bubbly, stirring every 30 seconds; stir in drained pineapple chunks and microwave, uncovered, on 100% power about 30 seconds more or till the pineapple is heated through.
  9. Toss the pineapple mixture with the pork mixture and serve with cooked rice.
  10. Note: I hope these instructions have been made clear for both methods! This was a recipe adoption, and I made changes to the instructions, hoping to make it a bit more understandable.
