1 pound lean pork, cut in 3/4" cubes
1 egg, well beaten
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
6 cups peanut oil
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup vinegar
3/4 cup pineapple juice
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 can pineapple chunks in juice, drain, reserve juice
3 tablespoons pineapple juice, from reserved juice
1 whole green pepper, sliced
1 whole red pepper, sliced

Dip pork cubes in beaten egg and then in flour, coating well. Fry pork in hot peanut oil (360°) until brown, about 8 minutes. Remove and drain on paper towel; keep warm. In a wok or deep skillet, combine sugar, vinegar, pineapple juice, and soy sauce; bring to boiling. Blend cornstarch into juice; gradually stir into sauce. Continue to simmer sauce, stirring constantly until it thickens.

Stir the warm deep fat-fried pork cubes, drained pineapple chunks and pepper slices into the thickened sauce. Heat mixture thoroughly, stirring constantly for about 5 minutes.
