Awesome! I substituted chicken thighs for the pork, pineapple for the cocktail, and added some halved grape tomatoes at the end. The sauce need some thickening, so added a couple teaspoons of arrow root (Corn starch would work too). Served over Brown rice and can't wait for leftovers tomorrow night.


This was a super hit. Everyone in my family loved it. I did use only 1 green pepper instead of 2. My family likes bell peppers only in moderation ;-). I also did not add the bell pepper and drained fruit cocktail until last 30 minute as well as tad bit of water as the juice from the fruit cocktail can was not quite enough "sauce". Great taste and so easy!


We used these ingredients but cooked in a Wok. 20 minutes later and my family was eating and happy.
