IntroductionAnother of my own "creations", trying to get the best flavor, nutrition & serving size for the calories. My husband can't quit raving about this one! I hope you enjoy also!

1 lb pkg lean boneless pork loin chops
1 large onion, chopped
3 - 4 cloves Garlic, minced
1 Tbsp Peanut Oil
3/4 C. Sweet & Sour Sauce (Fa Ling is my favorite)
1 Tbsp Reduced Sodium Soy Sauce (I use Kikkoman)
1 C. Celery, sliced
1 C. Carrots, sliced
8 oz Pkg Mushrooms, sliced
1 Large Red Bell Pepper, cut in strips
1 Large Green Bell Pepper, cut in strips
1 can water chestnuts (sliced)
2 C fresh pineapple, cut in bite-sized chunks
2 Tbsp Cider Vinegar
1/4 C water
Cut pork into small, bite-sized pieces, and onion into large chunks. Heat oil in wok, and cook port & onion until pork is no longer pink, and onions are translucent. Add minced garlic, soy sauce, and sweet & sour sauce. Heat until sauce bubbles. Remove from heat & reserve -- wipe sauce remnants out of wok. Put water & vinegar in wok, and add remaining vegetables & pineapple. Heat over med-high heat until vegetables are as done as you like (we like some crunch left), stirring frequently. (I also use a lid to keep liquid from evaporating too much) Stir in pork mixture, heat and stir until all is heated through.
This can be served "as is", or with rice, chow mein noodles, or whatever you prefer. The servings are large, so you may save even more calories if you call this 8 servings instead of 6.
Number of Servings: 6
