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.

Lovely, but after reading the comments I made 3 times as much and also added extra soy. Very tasty

How nice to find a quick, simple and tasty meal to cook using diced pork along with storecupboard ingredients. This was really easy to make and tasted amazing - my husband loved it and was impressed that I made it in under 30 mins!

This is a quick, easy and tasty dish. I use Quorn or Tofu instead of pork, or just veg is fine too. The sauce is very light but more body and depth of flavour can be added to taste, as others have suggested in the comments.

I added more sugar as it wasn't sweet enough for sweet & sour! I added a green pepper, made it yummy & added bulk! you can do it with less meat, if you want a cheaper dish. made in minutes & the kids love it!

Made this with chicken instead of pork, cooking for a bit longer to make sure it was done through. Quite bland, probably wouldn't make again.

I loved this. I served with noodles which I'd tossed in with the rest of the stir fry before serving. It really coating the noodles in the sauce and made it really lovely. Will definitely be trying this again.

Had this for dinner this evening. Really nice and light. Served with brown rice. Didn't realise that the sauce would stick to the pork and veg, so there wasn't any left to drizzle over the top, but still a nice meal.

Nice and quick, used home grown honey instead of sugar. Everyone liked it. I did use more soy sauce and a wee bit of tabasco.

I thought their version was too vinegary, so kept adding other things (ketchup/soy/sugar) plus water and ended up with something that tasted a lot like Uncle Bens S&S sauce! - but at least it was cheaper than buting the jar
