This is currently one of our favorite family meals. It’s fast. It’s healthy. It’s inexpensive. And, it’s good. And because it’s rare for me to find meals that are all of the above I’m sharing the recipe with whoever wants to give it a whirl.
Here it is:
#1. In a large skillet/frying pan/wok cook sliced pork tenderloin until it is no longer pink. (However, I never use pork tenderloin. We always use the left over half of a pork roast we had for Sunday dinner.)
#2. Add in one chopped onion and one chopped red pepper. (This is optional. We just really like those at our house so I put them in if we have them on hand.)
#3. Dump in one package of frozen stir-fry vegetables. (Our favorite is the Asparagus mix in the generic Wal-Mart brand. But there are lots of kinds. We just like this because it’s good and the entire bag costs less than $2.)
#4. Add in one can of chunked pineapple (small or large depending on how much you like pineapple) with juice.
#5. Stir in 3-4 Tablespoons of your favorite BBQ sauce.
#6. Let simmer until vegetables are done.
#7. Serve over rice (brown or white) and with soy sauce.
I think the idea for this recipe originally came from one of those Kraft food magazines that come in the mail but we deleted and added a few things to fit our family taste buds. We love it and I hope you can use it to!
*I did not forget to add oil to the skillet. I just really don’t use any. You don’t need to. But if it makes you feel better, by all means, add some oil in at step #1.
*Forgive the photo. I’m still dreaming of a better camera.
