It’s summer! Good pineapple is still available and bell peppers are finally ripening! This means easy, delicious, home made Chinese sweet and sour!
To enjoy the outdoors and make an easy low fat meal, try this recipe.
3 thick boneless pork loin chops cut into large cubes (16 oz total)
1-2 large bell pepper cut into large pieces
1/2 onion cut into large pieces
small pineapple cut into large pieces (canned can be used)
sweet & sour sauce
This makes enough for 4 small servings.
Start cooking rice. Put pork on it’s own skewers since they take longer to cook than the vegetables. Cook over medium-high heat, continuously turning for roughly 10 minutes until just cooked in the center. This will keep them tender. Alternate your onion, pepper and pineapple pieces on skewers. If you have a higher level rack on your grill you can start cooking your vegetable skewers at the same time. If not, add them to the grill after 4 minutes of cooking the pork. Cook the vegetables for 6 minutes, 3 minutes on each side. You don’t want them to cook until they are soft, but you do want them warm and tender.
Take what you want off the skewers, put on a bed of rice and pour sweet & sour sauce over it!
Tasty and healthy!
