Similar to Chinese takeout but healthier. Much less salt.

"Very, very good. It was easier than I thought it was going to be. Doubled the recipe and made it for my family, everything worked perfectly. I used chops instead of the tenderloin."

Preparation

Hest olive oil in a non-stick wok or skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork, gingerroot and garlic. Cook and stir for 6 - 7 minutes, until pork is cooked through and begins to brown.

Remove pork and keep it warm.

Add green pepper, carrots and onions to wok. Cook and stir until vegetables are tender.

Meanwhile prepare sauce. Drain pineapple, reserving 1/2 cup juice.

In a small bowl, wisk together, reserved pineapple juice, ketchup, vinegar, brown sugar, soy sauce, cornstarch and chili powder.

Serve over hot cooked rice.

Notes

Saw this one on TV this morning. I made a few changes to suit 2 people with leftovers for a lunch the next day. Tasted great and much less salt than you would get ordering it out.

Very, very good. It was easier than I thought it was going to be. Doubled the recipe and made it for my family, everything worked perfectly. I used chops instead of the tenderloin.

I won't use pork again; but this recipe would be delicious with chicken.

I wish I'd seen this before I made tonight's chicken dinner. I'll bet it's just as good with chicken, and I am going to give it a try (with a bit less ginger, since I don't care for ginger much). Thanks. :) Anne
