Sweet & Sour Pork

Tuesday, August 13, 2013

I've been eating an awful lot of chicken lately and really felt the desire to switch it up with something other than fish!  I came across a recipe for sweet and sour chicken and decided to substitute the chicken with pork. Oh it was good!!!

Nice to switch things up once in a while!

Serves 4


1 cup each of red, yellow, green and orange peppers cut into 1 inch chunks
1 cup onion cut into 1 inch chunks
4 medium pork chops, trimmed of fat cut into 1 inch cubes
1/3 cup low sodium soy sauce
2 tbsp natural raw honey
2 garlic cloves minced
1 tsp fresh ginger
1/4 tbsp red pepper flakes
 1/2 cup pineapple chunks if you prefer (I chose without because I don't like pineapple but this would be good with it if you are a fan)
4 cups brown & wild rice (I use the individual Minute Rice servings)


Marinade- Combine soy sauce, honey, garlic, ginger and red pepper flakes.  Whisk together.  Add pork cubes, cover and refrigerate for 30 mins or up to 8 hours.

Heat pan over medium-high heat, add pork cubes and marinade.  Cook for approximately 5 minutes.  Add peppers and onion.  Cook for a further 5 minutes.  If adding pineapple add at this point and cook for another 2 minutes.  If not you can remove the dish from the heat and serve with cooked rice.
