"My family really enjoys this colorful stovetop supper that's lower in sodium than typical stir-fries," writes Wilma Jones of Mobile, Alabama. "We have it often on weekends instead of going out for Chinese food."


  • 1 can (8 ounces) unsweetened pineapple chunks
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 1 pound pork tenderloin, cut into thin strips
  • 1 cup julienned sweet red and/or green pepper
  • 1 small onion, quartered and thinly sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1 medium navel orange, peeled, sectioned and halved
  • 3 cups hot cooked rice


  1. Drain pineapple, reserving juice; set juice and pineapple aside. In a bowl, combine brown sugar and cornstarch. Stir in the broth, lemon juice, soy sauce, lemon zest and reserved juice until blended; set aside.
  2. In a nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, stir-fry pork for 3-4 minutes or until mat is no longer pink; remove and keep warm.
  3. In the same skillet, stir-fry pepper, onion and garlic in oil for 3-4 minutes or until crisp-tender. Stir the broth mixture; add to vegetables. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Return pork to the pan. Add orange pieces and pineapple; heat through. Serve over rice.
