  • 1 pound pork loin, cut into bite-sized pieces

  • 1 tablespoon Chinese five-spice powder

  • ¼ cup vegetable oil, divided, or as needed

  • ½ red bell pepper, cut into bite-sized pieces

  • ½ yellow bell pepper, cut into bite-sized pieces

  • ½ orange bell pepper, cut into bite-sized pieces

  • ½ red onion, cut into bite-sized pieces

  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped

  • 1 cup chopped broccoli

  • 1 cup fresh pineapple, cut into bite-size chunks

  • ¼ cup sweet and sour sauce


  1. Place pork in a bowl, season with Chinese five-spice powder and mix well.

  2. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a wok over high heat; stir-fry pork until slightly pink in the center, about 5 minutes; remove pork to a plate. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

  3. Add remaining 2 tablespoons oil to wok as needed; stir-fry red, orange, and yellow bell peppers with onion and garlic until crisp-tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in broccoli and pineapple; stir-fry for 3 minutes more.

  4. Stir pork and sweet and sour sauce into wok; stir-fry until pineapple is lightly browned, about 2 minutes.
