  • 1/2 cup blanched whole almonds
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless top loin of pork, trimmed of fat and cut into 1 inch cubes or strips
  • 1 medium onion, sliced into half-moon-shaped slices
  • 1 large green bell pepper, seeded and cut into 1-inch triangles
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup low-sodium catsup
  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp cornstarch, dissolved in 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup canned pineapple chunks in juice, drained
  • 1 large tomato, roughly chopped
  • 6 cups cooked rice


Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Bake the almonds in the preheated oven for 15 minutes and set aside. Meanwhile, bring the water to a boil in a small saucepan. Add the pork and simmer for 5 minutes. Add the onion, bell pepper, and tomato to the pan and simmer for 5 additional minutes.

Drain and reserve the pork and vegetables. Put the maple syrup, vinegar, catsup, and soy sauce in a saucepan, bring to a boil over high heat, and boil for 2 minutes. Add the dissolved cornstarch and cook for 3 to 5 minutes to thicken. Then add the vegetables, pork, and pineapple chunks.

Add the almonds, cook for 3 more minutes, and serve over cooked rice. Use 1 cup of rice for each serving of sweet-and-sour pork.
