Pork 'n' Pineapple Stir-Fry Recipe

A light sweet-and-sour sauce gently coats lean pork and mixed vegetables in this colorful stir-fry. Ginger and garlic give it zip, and pineapple adds a touch of the tropics. —Rebecca Baird, Salt Lake City, Utah

"This is quite a refreshing dish and it is easy to be prepared. The combination of sourness, sweetness and saltiness will make this simple dish stand out of the crowd. If you wish to have stir fried pork which melt into your mouth .you probably should opt for tenderloin cut.
