IntroductionAsian cuisine that will leave you satisfied without making you feel guilty, yum! This recipe can easily be cut in half but I like recipes that you can cook once and eat twice. Boneless, skinless chicken breast makes a tasty, lower calorie substitute for the pork. Asian cuisine that will leave you satisfied without making you feel guilty, yum!

3 Tbsp. Cornstarch
3 Tbsp. Cold Water
1/2 cup Rice Vinegar (the unsweetened kind)
1/2 cup Kikkoman Lite Soy Sauce
1 cup Tomato Sauce
1 14 oz. can fat free Chicken Broth,
1/4 tsp Stevia Powder, or to taste
1/4 tsp. Sea Salt
1 Tbsp. Canola Oil, divided
1 Large Onions, chopped
1 Large Green Bell Pepper, chopped
1 Large Carrot, Sliced on the diagonal
2 pounds bonless Pork sirloin, 1' cubes with visible fat removed
1 tsp. ground Ginger, ground
1 fresh Pineapple, peeled and chopped (about 2 lbs)
1Tbsp. Ginger Root, minced
COOK'S NOTE: Most stir fry techniques begin by fully preparing and combining all foods that will be cooked together before you cook anything. This is because the cooking happens quickly and at a high temperature that you won't have time to do much else.
In a small bowl combine vinegar, soy sauce, tomato sauce, chicken broth and stevia powder. Mix well. In a small cup combine cornstarch and cold water. Mix well and then add to the other liquids. Set aside.
In another bowl combine pork, ginger root, salt and ginger powder. Set aside.
In a third bowl combine onion, carrots and green pepper.
Heat a large wok, cast iron skillet or nonstick skillet over medium-high to high heat. Add 1/2 Tbsp. oil to the hot pan. When it starts to look shimmery (about 15 to 30 seconds) add onion, bell pepper and carrot and cook, stirring constantly, for about 3-4 minutes or until tender-crisp. Remove vegetables from the pan.
Add the other 1/2 Tbsp. oil to the skillet. Then add the seasoned pork, stirring constantly. Continue to stir fry until pork is fully cooked, 5-8 minutes.
Reduce heat to medium. Stir liquid mixture to blend cornstarch that settled to the bottom. Immediately pour over the pork, stirring constantly. Bring to a boil and continue to cook for 1 minute. Add the vegetables and pineapple. Heat through.
Tastes great served over brown rice or stir-fried broccoli slaw.
Number of Servings: 11
