DIRECTIONS

  • Prepare the sauce by first stirring cornstarch with about 2 or 3 tbs.of the chicken broth in a small bowl.
  • When the cornstarch is dissolved and smooth, stir in the remaining sauce ingredients and set aside.
  • Brown ham in 1/3 of butter over moderately high heat in a skillet or wok until it begins to brown.
  • Remove and set the ham aside.
  • Melt another 1/3 of the butter in the skillet or wok and sauté the onions.
  • When they start to soften and turn translucent, add the peppers and the final 1/3 of the butter.
  • When the onions have somewhat browned, add the ham and the pineapple, juice and all.
  • Stir the sauce until smooth again (since the cornstarch tends to settle) and pour into skillet or wok.
  • Increase heat and stir until the sauce begins to bubble.
  • Reduce heat and stir for a minute or two until the cornstarch is fully cooked; if too thick, thin with a little water or broth.
  • Serve over steamed rice as soon as possible. I like to sprinkle some dried hot red pepper flakes over it; I love hot food and this gives the dish some zing!
