Cashew, Pineapple & Pork Stir Fry

Recipe From: Our Best Bites Website
We got a fresh pineapple from Harry and David's in the mail today, which went perfect with this dish.
2 tbsp cornstarch (divided)
1 tbsp apple juice
1 lb. pork tenderloin or boneless pork chops (thinly sliced)
1/3 cup water
¼ cup sugar or splenda
¼ cup cider vinegar
3 tbsp soy sauce
3 tbsp ketchup
1 tbsp oil
1/4 cup cashews (chopped)
¼ cup green onions
2 tsp ginger
2 tsp garlic
6-8 oz snow peas
1 cup pineapple chunks

Combine 1 tablespoon cornstarch, apple juice, and pork. Toss well. Combine 1 tablespoon cornstarch, water, sugar, vinegar, soy sauce, and ketchup. Stir with a whisk; make sure there are no clumps with the cornstarch. Now collect everything that's going into the stir fry next to the stove so you can access it easily.

Heat 1-2 Tbsp. canola oil in a large frying pan or wok over medium-high heat. Add pork and stir-fry 3 minutes. Add onions, ginger, and garlic. Stir-fry 1 minute. Add snow peas and pineapple. Stir-fry 3 minutes more. Whisk sauce ingredients again and add to pan. Bring to a boil. Cook 1 minute, stirring frequently. Stir in cashews and serve over hot rice. Garnish with more cashews and green onions if you want.
