An easy, healthy weeknight meal that kids love! Full of thinly sliced pork tenderloin and healthy veggies all coated in a sweet and simple pineapple sauce.


For the Stir-Fry:

  • 2-2 1/2lbs pork tenderloin, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • avocado or coconut oil for cooking

For the Sauce:

  • 1 20oz can Dole Pineapple Chunks, juice drained into a measuring cup (should be about 1 cup of juice)
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons tamari (gluten-free soy sauce)
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • pinch of red pepper flakes
  • white rice for serving


Note: Before starting to cook, be sure the pork, bell peppers and onion are all sliced and the sauce is ready to go. The cooking process for this stir-fry is fast so it’s helpful to have everything prepped!

Place the thinly sliced pork tenderloin in a bowl, sprinkle with the cornstarch, salt and pepper and toss to evenly combine.

Open the can of pineapple and drain the juice into a measuring cup. Add the remaining sauce ingredients and stir to combine. Set aside.

Place a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add 2 tablespoons of oil and heat for a minute or so until hot and shimmering. Add 1/2 the pork tenderloin and cook in an even layer, not moving for 3-4 minutes until browned. Brown on the other side then transfer to a plate. Repeat with the remaining pork tenderloin adding more oil if needed.

After browning the pork tenderloin, add the peppers and onions to the now-empty skillet and cook until softened, about 2-3 minutes. Add the pork back to the pan along with the sauce and 1 cup of pineapple chunks. Cook until the sauce has thickened and everything is bubbly and hot.

Serve over hot rice with the remaining pineapple chunks on the side. Enjoy!
