Pork and Pineapple Stir-Fry-pictures

Please bear with me, I will get this food blogging thing. I don't know if the pictures are actually all that great but It will get better.

One serving is 440 calories about a cup and 3/4 each

1. I don't care for instant rice so my first step is throwing my rice in the rice cooker before I start on everything else.

This is all you need to achieve this yummy and easy dish

  • A pound of a lean cut of pork
  • Tri-color cole slaw mix
  • ground Ginger
  • 20oz can of pineapple chunks
  • Brown Sugar
  • Corn Starch ( I thought I had some but I didn't so I subsituted with flour)
  • Pepper flakes: optional

Please ignore the Worcestershire Sauce. For some reason it just wanted to be in the picture

Cut your meat into bite-sized strips and set aside

In a small bowl mix

  • 3tbsp of brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp of ground ginger
  • Optional but you can add 1/4 tsp of the pepper flakes
  • 1/2 Cup of water
  • 1 1/2 cornstarch. (Since I used flour I slowly mixed it into the liquid mixture to prevent lumps with a fork.)
  • 3 tbsp of soy sauce. (I only had low sodium on hand and had to add just a little salt. So the regular soy sauce is best, no salt required)
  • 2 tbsp of the pineapple liquid
Ensure that the mixture is well blended and set aside. 

Now please ignore the counter. I LIVE in military housing. Things are always needing a fixing. LOL!!!

In my Wok, (If you don't have a Wok, don't fret use a skillet) I added a lil maybe a tsp of olive oil and heated my Wok. If you have a non-stick Skittet, you will not need the oil but look at the wok, dude. It has been used for YEARS and the non-stick is no longer sticking. 

In the heated Wok or Skillet, add the drained pineapples and a tbsp of brown sugar. Let the pineapples cook for 5 minutes. Don't forget to turn occasionally. 

Then remove the pineapple and set aside.

In the same Skillet or Wok, begin to cook your pork (about medium high heat) for about 2 minutes.
Now, add your coleslaw mix. Cook and stir for about 5 minutes or when the pork is no longer pink in the middle and the cabbage is tender. Don't forget to Stir Stir and Stir.

Once your meat is fully cooked and cabbage is tender, stir in your pineapples and your marinate that you mixed earlier. Then let that simmer for about another 3 or 4 minutes. The sauce should be slightly thickened.

Then serve with rice.

If you enjoyed this recipe, please rate at the bottom. Let me know if I should keep this up.

The pictures will get better and I will get better with the directions. I hope you enjoy!!!
