Sweet and Sour Pork

1 lb of cubed pork --I bought the cheapest boneless chops @ 2lbs, cut up the pork, split it into two baggies and still have an extra bag in the freezer now if I want to make the meal again. (.90)
2 tbs of olive oil (.10)
1/4 cup of brown sugar (.25)
1 tbs of Worcester sauce (.03)
1 tbs of cornstarch (barely .01)
1 8 oz can of pineapple w/ juices (.65)
1/3 cup of white wine vinegar (.10)
1/4 green pepper (.20)
1 cup of rice (.30)
1 broccoli head (.40)

Step 1: Cook pork cubes in olive oil in frying pan on the stove.

Step 2: Have 1 cup of rice cooking. I use a rice cooker but you can do it on the stove, also. Put the one cup of rice in a saucepan, cover it with 2 cups of water and cook on med. heat until water is completely gone.

Step 3: Steam broccoli head (steam without a steamer)

Step 4: Mix corn starch and brown sugar in saucepan. Add about 1/4 cup of water and pineapple juice. Add vinegar and Worcester sauce and continue to stir over medium heat.
Step 5: Add pineapple chunks and green pepper chunks to the mix.
Step 6: Add the pork and let it simmer for about 10 minutes.
Step 7: Serve over warm bed of rice with steamed broccoli. Yummo!
Total cost of meal: $2.94
