Spicy Pork Stir Fry

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.

Spicy Pork Stir Fry
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.

pork pieces
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.

delicious pork
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.

quick fry
Green onions in, 30 more seconds. Keep stirring, there is a reason they call this stir fry!

so pretty
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!

Spicy Pork Stir Fry
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!


  1. I'm so sorry that you're foodily incompatible with your husband. If you cook like this, I'd marry you. :) Looks delicious!

    1. Thank you :) He has gotten a little better over the 11 years we have been together...just a little.

  2. I love the color you got on the meat and veggies! Sounds super tasty (even if your husband didn't think so!)

  3. I have never liked the pork and pineapple combo, but that stir fry looks delicious!

    My husband doesn't try 75% of the food I make either - which kills my next door neighbor. His wife thinks cooking is throwing a protein, with a bag of frozen veggies, mixed with a "cream of. . ." soup mixed into a casserole dish and ritz crackers on top and into the oven.

    1. That is too funny, and I know people that cook like that too!!
