Ingredients

    12 oz. boneless pork loin, trimmed of all visible fat 1 can (8 oz.) pineapple chunks in juice 2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce 1 Tbsp. cornstarch 1/2 tsp. salt to taste 1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper to taste 1 Tbsp. canola or peanut oil, divided 2 cups fresh or frozen broccoli florets 1 medium carrot, thinly sliced 1 medium onion, cut vertically into 1/2-inch slices 8 ears canned baby corn 1 garlic clove, chopped 1 tsp. minced fresh ginger

Directions

1. Freeze pork until firm, about 20 minutes. Cut pork into 1/4-inch by 2- or 3-inch strips. Set aside.

    This is one of my favs, I use a bag of stir fry veggies to make it quicker, also I use a lot more garlic (good for the heart!) and extra ginger (BTW, fresh makes a big diff. in taste). I use an entire can of baby corns too (look in the asian section of store to find them). Always a fav. @ my home! - 3/27/08

    excellent recipe! i added extra ginger and some oyster sauce to make it truly spectacular- the trick is not to overcook so that it stays crisp and delish! - 3/6/09

    It is much better when you sub. low sodium soy sauce or tamari for the worchestershire. Also more garlic and I used a bunch of green onions for more flavor. - 8/25/08

    I agree... original recipe rather bland. Good idea to use soy or even fish sauce. I would also like sweet pepper and more garlic. - 3/1/09

    Nice recipe. I modified and made it with boneless/skinless Chicken Thighs. It was just as tasty. I agree with some of the other comments, it did need extra Garlic but, of course, that's all up to personal tastes. Sure enjoyed this good-tasting recipe. Thanks! - 2/23/09

    This recipe had very good flavor and the pork was tender. For those of us who love chinese food this is a great replacement. The recipe was not hard to make and even my husband like the meal. - 10/14/08

    Made it last night and really liked it. Very easy to make and all ingredients that I have on hand. After reading the comments, I think I will cut out the Worchestershire next time, and up the pineapple juice. Only problem was that I didn't immediately put away the extra portions, and we overate! - 2/22/08

    I followed other reviewers' advice and used low-sodium soy sauce, and more ginger and garlic and added a red bell pepper. I used leftover pork tenderloin, which I put in at the end just to reheat. It had beautiful color and was super delicious! My kids loved it, too! - 1/23/10

    as a single person, i cut this recipe in half. it was very good. added sodium free soy sauce, green peppers and regular corn instead of baby ears since i didn't have any. it was well worth the effort and fit in nicely with my weight watchers points. i served it over whole grain brown rice. - 6/3/09

    Delicious recipe! Didn't have the baby corn so I substituted green peppers & didn't have fresh ginger so I used dried. Definitely will try again with fresh ginger instead! The fresh vegetables definitely made it great! - 3/3/09
