Equipment

Ingredients
  

  • 1 pound seitan or tofu cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 onion diced
  • 1 red bell pepper diced
  • 1 green bell pepper diced
  • 1 can pineapple chunks drained (reserve juice for sauce)
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

Instructions
 

  • In a mixing bowl, coat the seitan or tofu pieces with 1/2 cup of cornstarch.
  • Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the coated seitan or tofu pieces to the skillet and fry for 5-7 minutes, until golden brown and crispy.
  • Remove the seitan or tofu from the skillet and set aside.
  • In the same skillet, add the diced onion, red and green bell peppers and sauté for 3-4 minutes.
  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together the reserved pineapple juice, ketchup, rice vinegar, brown sugar, soy sauce, and cornstarch.
  • Pour the sauce into the skillet with the vegetables and stir to combine. Add the fried seitan or tofu back to the skillet along with the pineapple chunks and stir to coat everything with the sauce.
  • Reduce the heat to medium-low and let the sweet and sour pork simmer for 5-7 minutes, until the sauce has thickened and the vegetables are tender.
  • Serve the sweet and sour pork hot, garnished with additional green onions or sesame seeds if desired. Enjoy!
