  • 1 ½ pound pork tenderloin fat trimmed + sliced thin
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 3 bell peppers sliced
  • 1 cup fresh pineapple diced
  • 4 scallions thinly sliced on the diagonal
  • ¼ cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • ¼ cup rice vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • kosher salt
  • cracked black pepper


  • cooked white rice for serving
  • 2 tablespoons roasted peanuts
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro chopped
  • lime wedges


  • Place the sliced pork in a mixing bowl; sprinkle 1 tablespoon cornstarch and season with a big pinch of salt and pepper – toss to coat.
  • In a large (12”) skillet or wok, heat 1 tablespoon oil over high heat until very hot. Add the pork and stir-fry until the pork is almost cooked through and begins to brown, about 2 minutes. Add 2 cloves garlic and the 3 sliced bell peppers and stir-fry until the vegetables begin to soften, about 5 minutes.
  • Add 1 cup diced pineapple and 4 sliced scallions and continue to stir-fry until the pork is cooked through and the vegetables are tender, 1 to 2 minutes longer.
  • In a large liquid measuring cup, whisk together ¼ cup soy sauce, ¼ cup  rice vinegar, and 3 tablespoons sugar and add it to the skillet. Cook until the sauce thickens, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Serve over cooked rice or noodles and garnish with chopped peanuts, chopped cilantro, and lime wedges.


  • Serve with an Asian Slaw salad kit or my Cucumber Avocado Salad.
