  1. 200g raw prawns, peeled
  2. 300g pork fillet, diced
  3. 300g jasmine rice
  4. One tin (200 g) pineapple chunks, drained
  5. 90g spring onions, sliced
  6. 200g red peppers, cored and sliced
  7. 20g fresh coriander leaves
  8. 30ml groundnut oil
For the sauce
  1. 30g corn flour
  2. 30ml tomato ketchup
  3. 90ml rice wine vinegar
  4. 30ml soy sauce
  5. 60g soft brown sugar
  1. For the sauce, place all the ingredients in a saucepan and add 100 ml water. Mix together well until smooth and cook until the mixture starts boiling. Reduce it to a simmer and cook for 2 minutes until the sauce thickens.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the rice in a pot of salted water for 10 minutes until it becomes tender but remains firm and drain into a colander.
  3. Pour half of the measured oil into a wok and add in the spring onions along with the red pepper slices. Stir fry for a minute until they are heated through and remove from heat.
  4. Heat the remaining oil in the same wok and add the pork. Stir fry for 5 minutes until just cooked and stir in the prawns. Stir fry for another minute then return the stir-fried veggies back into the wok and add the pineapple chunks. Pour in the sauce and stir them all together until the ingredients are warmed through and remove from heat.
  5. Arrange a bed of jasmine rice on each serving plate and pile up equal amounts of the stir-fried mixture on top of each serving. Scatter the cilantro leaves over them to garnish.
  6. Serve warm.
