  Loin pork 1 Pound, cut in large cubes
  Sesame oil 1 Tablespoon
  Red onion 1 Medium, cut in half and sliced into one inch pieces
  Bell pepper 1⁄2 , cut into one inch slices
  Pineapple slices 2 , cubed
  Orange juice 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)

Heat a large skillet – or wok – with some peanut oil. Add the pork cubes and start browning the meat – about 5 minutes. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until pork is browning more evenly. Add the peppers and pineapple. Stir and cook for another few minutes. Add the liquid and red chili pepper flakes. Mix well and add the sesame oil. Allow everything to cook until liquid is almost gone and the meat and fruit are browned and cooked through. Add the chopped cilantro and remove from heat.
