Pork Pineapple Stir-Fry

750 g (1 1/2 lb) boneless pork chops, cut into 2.5-cm (1-inch) cubes

15 ml (1 tbsp) cornstarch

2 ml (1/2 tsp) salt

2 ml (1/2 tsp) cracked black pepper

15 ml (1 tbsp) vegetable oil

6 cloves garlic, minced

15 ml (1 tbsp) minced fresh ginger root

8 green onions, cut into 2.5-cm (1-inch) pieces, white and green parts separated

30 ml (2 tbsp) rice vinegar

50 ml (1/4 cup) hoisin sauce

125 ml (1/2 cup) chicken broth

250 ml (1 cup) sugar snap peas

250 ml (1 cup) red bell pepper chunks

250 ml (1 cup) pineapple chunks

250 ml (1 cup) toasted cashews (optional)

Steamed rice

In a medium bowl, toss pork with cornstarch until coated; season with salt and pepper.

In a large non-stick skillet or wok, heat oil over medium-high heat; brown pork, tossing often, for about 3 minutes. Add garlic, ginger and the white parts of the green onions; cook for 1 minute. Stir in vinegar and cook until it evaporates, about 30 seconds. Transfer pork mixture to a plate.

In same skillet or wok, add hoisin and broth, scraping up any brown bits. Stir in snap peas, red pepper and pineapple and bring to a boil, about 2 minutes. Return pork mixture to pan and add remaining green onions. Cook for 1 minute until sauce thickens slightly. Sprinkle with cashews, if desired.

Serve over rice.
