I was impressed with the taste and the simplicity of my first recipe from the Weight Watchers cook book so I thought I would try another. One of my favorite cuts of meat is the pork tenderloin. I also love to pair pork with pineapple so I thought this recipe looked perfect.
This looks super simple. The most important thing about making a stir fry is making sure your prep is done and you have read the recipe and understand what you have to do. Stir fries move quick so you have to have everything near by and ready to go in the pan.
You will need pork, pineapple, ginger, oil, garlic, soy sauce, sesame oil, peppers, tomato and onion.
Chop up the pork, try to make it all about the same size.
Chop up all of your veggies and garlic.
Drain your pineapple. In hindsight I probably would have chopped these chunks a little finer also.
Again, make sure you have everything ready to go...this cooks over high heat and things cook fast.
Once your oil is hot, drop in the pork. Stir fry for about 2 minutes until its browned. Get it out of there but leave the oil in the pan.
Drop in the peppers and cook for about 3 minutes.
Green onions in, 30 more seconds. Keep stirring, there is a reason they call this stir fry!
Pineapple, 30 more seconds of cooking...
Here is where it gets exciting, everything else in the pan, including the pork. Cook it for about 2 more minutes and you are ready to eat. Well, the recipe says sprinkle with cilantro first, but you know that aint happening here!
Absolutely delicious, and fast! You could serve this over some brown rice as well. This is the kind of thing that makes me sad for my husband, I know he would love it if he would just TRY it. But he insists he does not like pork, so he misses out again.
I hope you are all having a great week!
