Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lb [0.7 kg] of pork loin or boneless pork chops , thinly sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon of pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt (or more, to taste), divided
  • 4 tablespoons of soy or peanut oil
  • 1 large white onion , cubed
  • 1 bell pepper , chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic , crushed
  • 1 cup of cubed green tomatoes (see notes)
  • 2 cups of pineapple , peeled and cubed
  • 1/2 teaspoon of chili flakes (optional)
  • 3 tablespoons of cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons of soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup of Mizkan Citrus Rice Vinegar
  • 2 cups of water
  • 1 cup of chopped garlic chive (see notes)
  • 1 cup of chopped leek

Instructions

  • Pat pork dry with a paper towel. Season with pepper and a teaspoon of salt.
  • Heat oil over high heat in a large pot.
  • Add pork (careful with oil splatters!) and cook and stir until it turns brown.
  • Add onion and pepper and cook and stir for 30 seconds.
  • Add garlic, tomatoes and pineapple. Cook and stir for 30 seconds.
  • Stir in chili flakes.
  • Mix cornstarch, soy sauce, Mizkan Citrus Rice Vinegar and water. Add to the pot and stir.
  • When it breaks the boil, add chive and leek. Cook until these two wilt.
  • Taste and season with more salt if you find it necessary.
  • Serve with white rice.

Notes

If you don't have chili flakes, use spicy sauce to taste.
If you can't find garlic chives, substitute for equal amount of chives, the taste is different, but the dish will still be very good.
I only had green cherry tomatoes (from my potted garden), they turned out really good, but use whatever green tomatoes you find.
