Pork, Pineapple, and Snow Pea Stir Fry

One of my local grocery stores frequently has pork tenderloins BOGO sales, and when they do, I stock up!  Since I never cooked pork tenderloin before I discovered these sales, I’ve spent a lot of time figuring out what to do with them.  Usually it involves a crock pot, but I am loving this stir fry!

If you’re following a clean eating/Whole 30/Paleo plan, swap out the soy sauce for the coconut aminos and use cauliflower rice instead of regular rice.

If you’re tracking WW Freestyle Points, or bites, this recipe varies a bit based on the type of rice.  It’s 4 points if you use cauliflower rice, 7 points for brown rice, and 9 points for white rice.

Ingredients for Pork, Pineapple, and Snow Pea Stir Fry

 

Start by prepping your ingredients.  Most importantly, make sure you cut the pork into small, bite sized pieces.  Seriously, if you’re not sure if your pork is cut small enough, it’s probably not.  The vegetables cook up quickly, and if the pork is not cut small enough, it will be raw inside. 

Cook the rice or cauliflower rice according to package directions.  Set aside and keep warm.

Pork cooking in wok

 

Take your wok and heat the canola oil in it over medium-high heat.  If you do not have a wok, you can use a large skillet.  Season the pork by sprinkling salt and pepper over it.  When the oil is hot, add the pork to the pan.  Cook the pork, stirring frequently, until it’s browned (about five minutes).  Once the meat has browned, remove it from the pan and keep warm.

Return your wok or skillet to the stove and add the sesame oil to pan.  Coat the pan with the oil.  Once the oil has warmed, add the bell pepper and cook it, stirring occasionally, for three minutes or until the peppers are crisp-tender.  Return pork to pan and add soy sauce or coconut aminos, pineapple, and the snow peas.  Stir frequently for one minute.
