Ingredients

  • 4 boneless pork loin chops (3/4 inch thick and 4 ounces each)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 teaspoons canola oil, divided
  • 1/3 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1/3 cup thinly sliced onion
  • 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

Directions

  1. Sprinkle pork chops with salt and pepper. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook pork chops until lightly browned, 3-4 minutes on each side. Remove and keep warm.
  2. In the same skillet, saute green pepper and onion in remaining 1 teaspoon oil until almost tender, about 2 minutes. Stir in broth, pineapple, ketchup, brown sugar and vinegar. Bring to a boil. Return pork to the pan. Reduce heat; cover and simmer until a thermometer inserted in pork reads 145°, 5-7 minutes. Remove and keep warm.
  3. Combine cornstarch and water until smooth; stir into skillet. Bring to a boil; cook and stir until thickened, 1-2 minutes. Serve with pork and, if desired, rice.
