  Red chili 1 , seeded and finely chopped (Fresh Ones)
  Chinese five spice powder 1 Teaspoon
  Sherry vinegar 15 Milliliter (1 Tablespoon)
  Soy sauce 15 Milliliter (1 Tablespoon)
  Canned pineapple chunks in juice 8 Ounce (1 Can Or 225 Grams)
  Chicken stock 6 Fluid Ounce (175 Milliliter Or 3/4 Cup)

1. Trim away any visible fat from the pork and cut into 1cm/ 1/2 in-thick slices using a sharp knife.
2. Brush the sunflower oil over the base of a flameproof casserole. Heat over a medium heat, then fry the pork for about 2 minutes on each side or until lightly browned.
3. Blend together the ginger, chilli, Chinese five-spice powder, sherry vinegar and soy sauce.
4. Drain the pineapple chunks, reserving the juice. Make the stock up to 300ml/1/2 pint/1 1/4 cups with the reserved juice, mix together with the spices and pour over the pork.
5. Slowly bring the stock to the boil. Blend the cornflour with the water and gradually stir into the pork. Add the green pepper and baby sweetcorn and season to taste.
6. Cover and cook in a preheated oven at 160°C/325°F/Gas 3 for 30 minutes or until the pork is tender. Stir in the pineapple and cook for a further 5 minutes. Garnish with flat-leaf parsley and serve with boiled rice.
