Brought together with a quick sauté and sriracha sauce for some sweet-heat, it's then spooned over cilantro-flecked brown rice for a fast and nutritious weeknight dinner.

  • Return skillet to high heat; swirl in 1 tablespoon oil. Add pork and cook, stirring a few times, until browned in places and almost cooked through, 2 minutes; transfer to a plate.

  • Add remaining 2 tablespoons oil, onion, bell pepper, green beans, and pineapple to now-empty skillet and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, until vegetables are crisp-tender, 8 to 10 minutes.

  • Whisk together Sriracha sauce, cornstarch, and 1 cup water in a small bowl; add mixture to skillet along with pork and any accumulated juices. Cook, stirring, until sauce thickens, about 30 seconds. Divide rice over four plates; spoon stir-fry on top and garnish with more cilantro before serving. 

Cook's Notes

You can usually find pre-cooked brown rice in vacuum packs at your local supermarket, on the grains shelf. Alternatively, look to the freezer aisle for fully cooked frozen grains.
