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.

Made this last night to use up some roast pork. Used an onion with the pepper instead of spring onions, and added an extra teaspoon of sugar and soy, and used less vinegar. Added more water towards the end to loosen the sauce, and served with noodles. Delicious! Looking forward to trying it with chicken next time.

Doubled all the quantities to make the sauce for 4 (apart from the vinegar) & added random veg from the fridge drawer tasted great & enjoyed by all of us. Hubby added 2 birds eye chillis at the end just to his plate.

I found this dish better than the usual sweet & sour - but then I don't like the batter element of most so this was key. I was all ready to double up the sauce but found the original recipe fine, I just added some water at the end to make it stretch. Except I only used 2 tbsp vinegar & added an extra teaspoon of sugar plus I added a tsp of Worcestershire sauce (got that from another Chinese recipe!). Really easy, tasty & better than a takeaway!

I used a good dollop of honey rather than sugar and doubled up on the sauce ingredients except the vinegar to get plenty of sauce. Used Japanese rice vinegar. Clear plates all round even from my fruit phobic teenager. Very nice, will be coming back to this one

Nice, but I think I would agree with other posts. It was too vinegary and not sweet enough. Just needs adjusting to ones personal taste!

Simple and quick to prepare, made quite large portions, little bit 'flaggy' with noodles, will use nice moist rice next time.

Served with noodles, this was perfect - knocks spots off our local takeaway! A repeat performance is called for soon :)
