1261448954meYXfE

Each Sunday, I thank my readership for their loyalty and dedication to my blog, by providing a healthy recipe.  To those that know, this is a healthy repeat, but for those that are unaware and are new to the blog, this is my way of “giving back.”  It is also a way to “Pay it Forward.”  Each Sunday, you have a healthy recipe to prepare for yourself or for your loved ones.  Today is a feast of tastes from  Make it in Minutes, featuring Winning Points Weight Watcher’s easy recipes.

 

There is an array of tasty low-fat bottled sauces now available in most supermarkets (often in the Asian section.)  In this particular recipe, you can substitute a teriyaki sauce for the sweet and sour variety, however, I'd suggest that you omit the salt, if you do.

INGREDIENTS:

  1. 1 Cup quick cooking brown rice
  2. 3/4 pound pork tenderloin thinly sliced against the grain
  3. 3/4 tsp. salt
  4. 1/2 tsp. coarsely ground black pepper
  5. 1 tsp. olive oil
  6. 3 scallions sliced on the diagonal, into 2” pieces
  7. 1 small apple peeled, cored and chopped
  8. 1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  9. 1 garlic clove, chopped
  10. 1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper
  11. 1 8oz. can of pineapple chunks in juice, drained
  12. 1/2 cup Chinese-style sweet and sour sauce

PREPARATION:

  • Cook the rice according to package directions
  • Sprinkle the pork with the salt and pepper.  Spray a large nonstick skillet with nonstick spray and set over medium –high heat.  Arrange the pork in the skillet in a single layer cooking in batches, in necessary.  Sauté until browned and cooked through.  1-2 minutes on each side.  Transfer the pork to a plate.
  • Add the oil to the skillet.  Stir in the scallions, apple, bell pepper, garlic, and crushed red pepper.  Sauté until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in the pineapple, sauce, and reserved  pork; bring to a boil.  Serve with rice.

S u g g e s t i o n:

Serve with steamed greens, such as spinach and drained, mandarin orange slices.
