Colorful Pineapple Pork Recipe

Colorful Pineapple Pork Recipe

Even though I'm cooking to two, I'll still make a small pork roast sometimes and use the leftover meat for this recipe. If you don't have roast left over, this dish can be made with pork tenderloin cutlets, cooked before adding to the recipe.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 20 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup plus 3 tablespoons water, divided
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 pound cubed cooked pork
  • 1 small cucumber, peeled, halved and sliced
  • 1 small carrot, sliced
  • 1 can (8 ounces) pineapple chunks, drained
  • 1 medium tomato, seeded and cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1/2 medium green pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • Hot cooked rice

Directions

  • 1. In a skillet, combine 1 cup water, sugar, vinegar and salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; add the pork, cucumber, carrot, pineapple, tomato, green pepper and soy sauce. Simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes or until heated through.
  • 2. Combine the cornstarch and remaining water until smooth. Stir into skillet. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve over rice. Yield: 2 servings.
