Easy Sweet & Sour Pork Recipe: This Sweet & Sour Pork Recipe Is Ready in 20 Minutes

Instead of making sweet and sour chicken, why not try something new with this easy sweet and sour pork recipe? Crispy pork is quickly stir-fried with onion, sweet peppers, garlic, pineapple and a sweet (and sour!) sauce. Serve over rice or rice noodles or with a side of fried rice. A crispy egg roll wouldn't hurt anything either.

Cuisine: Asian
Prep Time: 12 minutes
Cook Time: 8 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless pork loin, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil (divided)
  • 1 red bell pepper, rough chopped
  • 1 red onion, rough chopped
  • 1 cup pineapple chunks (drain if using canned pineapple)
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced

Sweet and Sour Sauce

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Put the pork into a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle the cornstarch over and toss to coat. 
  2. To make the sauce, combine all the ingredients. Whisk to combine. Set aside.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add the red bell pepper, pineapple, onion and garlic. Cook, stirring, about 2 minutes. Remove to a plate. 
  4. Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil in the skillet. Add the pork and cook until golden brown and almost cooked through, about 3 to 4 minutes. 
  5. Put the vegetables back into the pan. Pour in the sauce. Cook until sauce thickens, about 2 minutes.
