      RECIPE TITLE "Caribbean Sweet and Sour Pork Recipe"
    Source: Eating Well,

    yieldsMakes 6 servings   time--- difficultyeasy

    The following recipe calls for boiling the pork, which removes even more fat from the already lean pork filet. The sauce is practically fat free. You can also prepare this dish substituting cooked chicken, beef, fish, or shellfish for the pork.


    3 tablespoons vegetable oil
    2 tablespoons finely chopped, peeled fresh ginger
    1 tablespoon finely chopped garlic
    1 cup coarsely chopped carrots
    1 cup coarsely chopped onion
    1 cup coarsely chopped green bell peppers
    1 cup crushed pineapple in its own juice
    1/4 cup white wine vinegar
    1 tablespoon sugar
    1/2 tablespoon pepper">white or freshly ground black pepper
    1 1/2 cups ketchup
    1/2 cup pineapple juice or water
    2-1/4 pounds pork filets, cut into bite-sized cubes, at room temperature
    Cooked rice, for serving

    In a large saucepan, heat the oil. Add ginger and garlic and sauté over a low flame for 5 minutes until fragrant. Do not brown the garlic or it will taste bitter. Add the carrots, sauté another 5 minutes. Add the onion and peppers and sauté about 3 minutes--until the green peppers lose their rawness, but aren’t cooked thoroughly.

    Add the cup of pineapple and its juice and the vinegar. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium and cook for 5 minutes.

    Add the sugar, pepper, ketchup, and 1/2 cup of pineapple juice or water. Stir very well and continue to cook an additional 5 minutes.

    Cook the pork in boiling water for 10 minutes, testing the meat for doneness after 5 minutes. Cut a piece open -- if it’s not pink inside, it’s done. When done, drain and add the pork to the sauce. Cook together for 2 minutes.

    Adjust seasoning, tasting for salt, pepper, and vinegar. Add more if desired. Serve with cooked rice.

    NOTE: This dish should be served immediately. It toughens if held in the refrigerator.
