This sweet and sour stir-fry recipe is one of my family’s favorite weeknight recipes! The hearty pork with crunchy bell peppers and sweet pineapple is always a hit with everyone around our dinner table.


  • 1  lbs. pork tenderloin, trimmed and sliced thin
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • Kosher salt and cracked black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 bell peppers (any color), sliced
  • 1 cup diced fresh pineapple
  • 4 scallions, thinly sliced on the diagonal
  • ¼ cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • ¼ cup rice vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • Cooked rice or noodles, for serving


  • 2 tablespoons roasted peanuts, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
  • Fresh lime wedges


  1. Place the pork in a mixing bowl; sprinkle with cornstarch and season with salt and pepper – toss to coat.
  2. In a large skillet or wok, heat the 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 the garlic and bell peppers and stir-fry until the vegetables begin to soften, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the pineapple and scallions and continue to stir-fry until the pork is cooked through and the vegetables are tender, 1 to 2 minutes longer.
  4. In a large liquid measuring cup, whisk together the soy sauce, rice vinegar, and sugar and add it to skillet. Cook until the sauce thickens, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  5. Serve over cooked rice or noodles and garnish with peanuts, cilantro, and lime.
