recipe tools

Directions

Cook the rice according to package directions (about 45 minutes cook time).

Meanwhile, in a small bowl or measuring cup, whisk together the soy sauce, vinegar and sugar.

Slice the pork into 1/2-inch-thick rounds, then slice again to make 1/2-inch-wide strips. Place the pork in a medium bowl and sprinkle with the cornstarch and salt and pepper, and toss to coat.

In a large skillet or wok, heat the oil over high heat until very hot. Add the pork and stir-fry until the pork is almost cooked through and begins to brown, about 2 minutes. Add the garlic and bell peppers and stir-fry until the vegetables begin to soften, about 5 minutes. Add the pineapple and scallions and continue to stir-fry until the pork is cooked through and the vegetables are tender, 1 to 2 minutes longer.

Whisk the soy sauce mixture and add it to skillet. Cook until the sauce thickens, 2 to 3 minutes. Serve over the rice and garnish with roasted peanuts if desired.
