Sweet & Sour Pork

This Sweet & Sour Pork dish is healthy and perfect for a summer evening. I love all the colorful peppers. I didn't thicken the sauce, but you could add a little cornstarch mixed with water if you want it thicker. I served it 'as is', but I'm sure it would be delicious over brown rice.
Sweet & Sour Pork
4 boneless pork chops
4 cloves garlic, minced
6 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
6 tablespoons orange juice
3 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 red bell pepper
1 green bell pepper
1 yellow bell pepper
1 purple onion
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 teaspoon coarse ground pepper
salt to taste
Cut pork chops into bite-size chunks. Mix garlic, soy sauce, orange juice and vinegar in a medium bowl. Add pork and stir to coat evenly. Refrigerate for 15-20 minutes. Wash peppers and remove seeds. Cut into bite-size chunks. Cut the onion into bite-size chunks. Drain pork, reserving the marinade. Heat olive oil in medium non-stick sauce pan. Add pork and cook over medium heat until slightly brown. Add peppers & onions, salt & pepper. Cook approximately 2 minutes, stirring often. Add marinade, if desired, and cook another 2 minutes. If you want to thicken the sauce, add 2 tablespoons cornstarch mixed with 1/2 cup cold water. Continue to cook until sauce is thickened.
