  • Add in the pork cubes; toss to coat completely with batter.
  • Heat oil in a wok or skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Place the coated cubes into the oil (working in batches) cook about 4-5 minutes or until pork is done; remove with a slotted spoon or strainer to drain.
  • Pour off any excess oil leaving just a small amount.
  • Saute the green pepper, garlic and carrots until just crisp-tender.
  • Add in the pineapple chunks and juice, the remaining 1 cup of chicken broth and vinegar.
  • In a small cup dissolve the 2 tablespoons cornstarch in 2 tablespoons cold water, then add to the sauce along with soy sauce; cook and stir until thickened and bubbly (about 1 minute).
  • You can place the pork back in the wok to coat and heat in the sauce, or place the pork on a dish and pour the sauce over top, or serve the sauce on the side, the choice is up to you.
