  • 1/2 tsp salt, divided
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper, divided
  • 3/4 c canned pineapple juice
  • 3 Tbsp ketchup
  • 1 Tbsp cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tsp sugar

  6. Add pineapple and pepper to wok and stir-fry 1 minute or until pineapple browns.
  7. Re-stir sauce mixture, then add to wok and continue stir-frying 1 minute or until bell pepper begins to soften.
  8. Return pork and onions to wok and stir-fry 1 minute or until pork is just cooked through. Sprinkle with remaining salt and pepper. Stir in cantaloupe and garnish with scallions if using.
