Pineapple Pork

i made this stir-fry for dinner tonight. it was pretty good, but stir-frys are never quite as good as i think they should be. this didn't have quite as much flavor as i thought it should. anyway it was quick and easy to make. here's the recipe...

recipe from ken hom's quick wok
1 pound pork fillet
1 1/2 tablespoons peanut oil
3 tablespoons coarsly chopped garlic
8 ounces canned pineapple, chopped
2 tablespoons cilantro, finely chopped
1 tablespoon dark soy sauce
2 teaspoons sugar

2 teaspoons light soy sauce
2 teaspoons rice wine vinegar
1 teaspoon sesame oil
2 teaspoons corn starch

1. Cut the pork into thin strips. In a medium bowl combine the marinade ingredients. Add the pork and mix well and leave to marinate at room temperature while you prepare the rest of the ingredients. Drain and discard the marinade.

2. Heat wok to high heat until it is hot. Add the oil, and when it is very hot and slighty smoking, add the garlic and stir-fry for 15 seconds or until golden brown.

3. Add the pork and stir-fry for 3 minutes.

4. Finally, add the pineaplle, cilantro, soy sauce, and sugar, and continue to sitr-fry for 3 minutes.

5. Turn onto platter and serve at once with rice.
