  • In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high. Cook pork, in two batches, until well browned on one side, about 1 minute (pork will cook more later); transfer to a plate.

  • To skillet, add scallion whites and bell peppers; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, until peppers are crisp-tender, 6 to 8 minutes.

  • Add pork (along with any juices), broccoli, and pineapple chunks. Whisk sauce; add to skillet. Bring to a simmer; cook, stirring, until broccoli is warmed through, 2 to 4 minutes. Stir in scallion greens, and serve with rice.

Cook's Notes

Bring your meals into balance by serving a modest amount of meat with plenty of veggies.

I should say that pork took me much more than one minute to cook in the first step (if you follow the recipe, the pork will have only 3 minutes to cook, which was not enough for our tastes). I have added a dash of ginger and chinese 5-spice to the sauce. I have also sprinkled pork with dried ginger, salt and pepper before cooking and let it stand. I was also pretty liberal with the pepper throughout the cooking and the recipe came exactly to my tastes: sweet and sour, with a bit of heat.

This recipe was good and easy to make; however, I found the sauce to be a bit bland - I added a little Hoisin sauce to improve the flavor.

After reading the comments, I made this adding freshly grated ginger, a little bit of light brown sugar and some toasted sesame oil. Not bad. I would make it again.

I also found the sauce to be awfully bland - I'm not sure what would improve it, but I wouldn't make it again.

Not bad! Good and quick and colorful. I found the sauce bland, even after adding garlic and ginger. Also, I think if you cook the veggies according to these times, you'd end up with seriously soggy stuff. I did the peppers for 3 minutes and really just tossed the broccoli in until coated.

We found this dish rather bland. It's not something I would make again.

This is a good meal to make on a weeknight. Though I have to say there was nothing sweet about it. As a basic stir-fry, it stands up well, but don't think that you will be getting the taste of take-out Chinese food sweet and sour pork with the red sauce. Beyond that complaint, it is a meal I would make again, and a good way to get veggies and meat in a one-pot meal.
