Peanutty Pork stir fry

This is my new favorite stir fry recipe!

I love the combo.....pork, red pepper, carrots, and pineapple. Very pretty as well as tasty! The peanutty sauce is just perfect over rice and the chunks of nuts on top add a nice crunch. I doubled the recipe as it serves only 2....the 3 of us ate it all. Next time I may double it yet again, as I think leftovers would be just as good the next day!

If I hadn't just put a pot roast in the slow cooker, we would be having this for dinner tonight! This is definitely a recipe I will love. Thanks for posting it. :-)

Stir-fries with pineapple are so tasty! This is basically a home version of sweet-n-sour pork!
