Method

  1. Mix 4 tbsp of pineapple juice into the cornflour until smooth, then stir in the tomato sauce, soy, sugar and vinegar.
  2. Heat oil until very hot in a wok, then throw in the pork for 1 min, stirring. Lift pork out onto a plate, then set aside.
  3. Add the pepper, stir-fry for 2 mins, then add the pineapple and most of the spring onions for 30 secs. Stir in the sauce for 1 min, splashing in a little water as it cooks, then stir the pork back in for 20-30 secs until just cooked through – it should still be tender. Scatter with the remaining spring onions and serve with rice or noodles.

I made this with tofu. It's a really decent quick supper. I enjoyed the retro-feel sweet and sour sauce. I recommend adding extra soy though and fresh chilli if you like a kick.

I made this lovely stir fry and everyone loved it. My son thought it was better than the take-away!! I doubled it for my family and it was so easy to make. I will definately be making this again.
