Ingredients

  • 300g jasmine rice
  • 2 tbsp groundnut oil
  • 2 red peppers, sliced
  • 1 bunch of spring onions, sliced
  • 300g pork fillet, cut into cubes
  • 200g raw prawns, peeled
  • 200g tin pineapple chunks, drained
  • Handful of fresh coriander leaves to serve

For the sauce

  • 2 tbsp cornflour
  • 4 tbsp soft brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 6 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp tomato ketchup

Method

  1. Put all the sauce ingredients into a pan with 100ml water. Stir, bring to the boil, then simmer for a couple of minutes until thickened.
  2. Simmer the rice in salted water for 10-12 minutes until tender, then drain. Meanwhile, heat 1 tbsp of the oil in a wok or pan, fry the peppers and spring onions for 1 minute, then remove and set aside.
  3. Heat the remaining oil in the wok, fry the pork for 5 minutes, turning, until cooked, then add the prawns and cook for 1 minute until pink. Return the veg to the wok with the pineapple and sauce, then heat through. Serve with the rice, sprinkled with coriander.
