Looking for a great last-minute meal when friends drop in? Hampton, Virginia's Michelle Cavalier recommends one of her husband's sweet-and-sour favorites. “This is so easy, tastes just like Hawaiian pizza, and I usually have all ingredients on hand.”
- 4 boneless pork loin chops (3/4 inch thick and 4 ounces each)
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1/3 cup chopped green pepper
- 1/3 cup thinly sliced onion rings
- 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) reduced-sodium beef broth
- 1 can (8 ounces) unsweetened pineapple chunks, undrained
- 1/4 cup ketchup
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 3 tablespoons cold water
- Hot cooked rice, optional
- Sprinkle pork chops with salt and pepper. In a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, cook the chops for 4-5 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. Remove and keep warm.
- In the same skillet, saute green pepper and onion for 2 minutes or until almost tender. Stir in the broth, pineapple, ketchup, brown sugar and vinegar. Bring to a boil. Return pork to the pan. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 6-10 minutes or until meat juices run clear.
- Combine the cornstarch and water until smooth; stir into skillet. Bring to a boil; cook for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Serve over rice if desired. Yield: 4 servings.
