Recipe Ingredients

PORK AND PINEAPPLE:
1 (20 ounce) can pineapple chunks in juice
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 clove garlic, minced
1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
1 1/2 pounds boneless center cut pork loin, trimmed of fat and cut into 1-inch cubes
1/3 cup instant flour, such as Wondra
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 tablespoons canola oil
SAUCE AND VEGETABLES:
2/3 cup reduced-sugar ketchup
1/4 cup SPLENDA® Sugar Blend
1/3 cup rice vinegar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
1/2 cup coarsely chopped onions
1/2 cup coarsely chopped green bell pepper
1/2 cup coarsely chopped red bell pepper

Preparation

For pork and pineapple: Drain pineapple, reserving juice. Pour 1/4 cup of juice into 1-gallon zipper-lock plastic bag. Reserve remaining juice. To the bag, add soy sauce, garlic, ginger, and pork. Press air out of bag, seal, and refrigerate 3 to 4 hours. (Refrigerate remaining pineapple juice.)

After marinating pork, combine flour, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Remove pork from marinade to paper towels and pat dry. Reserve marinade. Add pork to flour mixture and toss until well-coated.

Heat 1 tablespoon oil in large, deep non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add half of pork and cook until browned all over, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove and keep warm. Repeat with remaining oil and pork. Remove cooked pork to a plate.

For sauce and vegetables: Add reserved marinade to pan and simmer over medium-high heat 4 to 5 minutes. In a medium bowl, whisk ketchup, SPLENDA® Sugar Blend, vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil, and remaining pineapple juice. Pour into pan and simmer 2 to 3 minutes, scraping pan bottom to loosen any browned bits. Add onions and peppers and simmer 1 minute. Add pork and pineapple, reduce heat to medium, and simmer 4 to 6 minutes, or until vegetables are crisp-tender, and sauce is slightly thickened.
