Ingredients

1 cup brown rice

1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce

1/4 cup rice vinegar

3 tablespoons sugar

1 1/4 pounds pork tenderloin, trimmed

1 tablespoon cornstarch

Kosher salt and cracked black pepper 

1 tablespoon peanut oil

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 bell peppers (any color), sliced

1/2 cup diced fresh pineapple

4 scallions, thinly sliced on the diagonal

2 tablespoons roasted peanuts, chopped (optional)

Directions

  1. Cook the rice according to package directions (about 45 minutes cook time). Meanwhile, in a small bowl or measuring cup, whisk together the soy sauce, vinegar and sugar. Slice the pork into 1/2-inch-thick rounds, then slice again to make 1/2-inch-wide strips. Place the pork in a medium bowl and sprinkle with the cornstarch and salt and pepper, and toss to coat. In a large skillet or wok, heat the oil over high heat until very hot. Add the pork and stir-fry until the pork is almost cooked through and begins to brown, about 2 minutes. Add the garlic and bell peppers and stir-fry until the vegetables begin to soften, about 5 minutes. Add the pineapple and scallions and continue to stir-fry until the pork is cooked through and the vegetables are tender, 1 to 2 minutes longer. Whisk the soy sauce mixture and add it to skillet. Cook until the sauce thickens, 2 to 3 minutes.
