This five ingredient Teriyaki Pork with Pineapple and Peppers is packed with flavor and very easy to prepare!
As the seasons change, my taste preferences follow right along. In the Fall and Winter I obsess over cozy casseroles and nice hearty soups and can’t imagine anything better! In the Spring, I want things a bit lighter, a little fresher.
Now that Summer, is approaching I want fresh flavorful dinners! On nights where I want a light, casual dinner, I love these Easy Keto Nachos. Weeknights are also not a night I have a lot of time to cook, so I turn to this Jalapeno Popper Chicken Skillet regularly!
But I wanted something different- with delectable flavors that was something different than I usually prepare. I thought about it for awhile and came up with this recipe! This Teriyaki Pork with Pineapple and Peppers is a one dish no fuss dinner that you can make with just five super simple ingredients!
If you have been reading long you might know I have a pretty good selection of Asian inspired recipes on this site. It is one of my favorite kinds of dishes to prepare, but this dish is a bit different because instead of my normal spicy Asian dish this one is lightly sweet from the Teriyaki sauce and perfectly complimented with the fresh pineapples!
Ingredients for Teriyaki Pork with Peppers
- Pork loin fillet- I bought one pork loin for Mr. Maebell and I, but if you need more than one, just adjust the recipe accordingly.
- San-J Teriyaki sauce- this brand is gluten free, so we love it in our house.
- Fresh pineapple- chopped into large chunks so it doesn’t cook too quickly.
- Green bell pepper- chop this into a similar size as your pineapple.
- Red bell pepper- again, take care to see the sizes of your peppers fairly large.
What sauce do you use for Pork with Pineapple?
For this dish I use San-J Teriyaki sauce. We have been big San-J fans for a long time because they have a great line of products that are gluten free. This kosher, non GMO, gluten free Teriyaki sauce has a mild sweetness with a hint of ginger and garlic.
It makes a great marinade and we love it on grilled chicken breast for a quick and easy dinner, and it happens to be the star of this dish! Other than the sauce, we just use a pork loin fillet, freshly chopped pineapple, red and green bell pepper.
That’s right. Just the basics in this dish! It bakes together so the flavors meld perfectly.
How do you make Teriyaki Pork with Pineapple and Peppers?
First, set your oven to preheat at 375 degrees. Next, lightly spray a casserole dish with cooking spray. This Teriyaki Pork can also be made in a cast iron skillet.
Add the pork loin to the pan and spread about 1/4 cup of the San-J Teriyaki sauce over the meat. In a large bowl, combine your pineapples and bell peppers with the remaining 1/4 cup of Teriyaki sauce and toss to combine. Be sure to toss well so everything gets an even coating of the yummy sauce.
Place the coated pineapple and peppers around the pork and bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the pork is cooked through. Cooking times may vary based on the size of the pork loin. Check the internal temperature of your pork if you aren’t sure if it’s cooked thoroughly.
What do I serve with Pork with Pineapple and Peppers?
I served this over white rice and sprinkled it with a few chopped green onions and sesame seeds. This would also be delicious served with brown rice, cauliflower rice or couscous.
This is the perfect dish for nights when you don’t have a lot of time to prep a dinner but want to make a healthy hearty dish! Check out the entire line of San-J products! They have everything- from tasty marinades and salad dressings to soups and crackers!
They are a great addition to any gluten free kitchen! Check their store locator to find a retailer near you. This sauce is a staple in our house.
