This savory sweet and sour pork made in a skillet is super easy to prepare.  Serve it over rice and you have a meal your entire family will enjoy.

3 tablespoons oil (I use Canola)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 medium onion, cut in rings
1 medium green pepper, cut in rings
1 (20 ounce) can pineapple chunks in juice
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons cornstarch           
Saute’ pork, onions and green pepper in oil until pork is browned and onion and peppers are tender.  Drain pineapple and reserve the juice.  In a bowl mix juice from pineapple, 1/2 cup water, vinegar, soy sauce, brown sugar, salt and pepper.  Pour over pork, onion and peppers in skillet.  Cover and simmer about 20 minutes until meat is tender.  In the same bowl mix cornstarch and 2 tablespoons water and beat with whisk until smooth.  Add to pork in skillet.  Cook on low, stirring constantly until mixture thickens.  Add pineapple chunks and simmer about 5 minutes longer.  Serve over rice.  Makes 6 to 8 servings.  Enjoy!

    This sounds so good. I am going to try it but since it will be just for me, I am going to cut the recipe in half. I hope it works. I love sweet and sour anything, well chicken, pork and I might try beef. Thank you for the recipe. Love your site.

    Can you put potatoes instead of pineapples ?

  3. I am making this tonight with chicken instead of pork, can’t wait to try it!

  4. Judy, I was the hero last night with this meal. We just had a Chinese restaurant close that served this kind of sweet and sour. It was the only place that we knew of that served the pork that ha no greasy batter. As it turned out this recipe was almost identical to our old place. My wife was ecstatic. Thanks so much.
