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
