2 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon cornstarch
Salt and pepper
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 pork tenderloin (about 1 pound), halved lengthwise and thinly sliced
1 onion or scallion, thinly sliced
2 bell peppers (ribs and seeds removed), cut into 2-inch pieces
1 package (10 ounces) frozen broccoli florets, thawed and patted dry
Cooked rice, for serving
In a small bowl, stir together ⅓ cup pineapple juice, vinegar, soy sauce, cornstarch, and ¼ cup water. Season sauce with salt and pepper.
In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat. Cook pork until well browned (2-4 minutes); transfer to a plate.
To skillet, add onions and bell peppers; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, until peppers are crisp-tender, 6 to 8 minutes.
Add pork, broccoli, and pineapple chunks to skillet. Whisk sauce; add to mixture. Bring to a simmer. Continue to stir, heating until broccoli is warmed through (2 to 4 minutes). Serve over rice.
