  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup Apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons catsup
  • 2 tablespoons coconut aminos

  • 1/4 cup each pineapple chunks, mango chunks, Mandarin oranges, sliced bell pepper.

When meat is cooked remove from Dutch Oven and set aside. In same Dutch Oven prepare sauce by combining all ingredients and heating until thickened.

Cut pork steaks into bite sized pieces and stir into sauce.

Re-heat the rice. Spoon meat and sauce over rice. Dress with toasted sesame seeds.


TIPS:

  • If you don’t typically have saved bacon drippings, cut a couple of slices of thick sliced bacon into tiny pieces. Fry until crisp. Don’t drain off fat. Sauté shallots and peppers in same pan. Leave the bacon in the pan to and stir in rice. The bacon will add to the rice.
  • It’s ok to use all pineapple juice instead of mixing juices.
  • The easiest way to toast sesame seeds is to place raw seeds on tin foil and brown in a toaster oven.
