Ingredients

  • canola or olive oil, for cooking
  • 1 lb skinless, boneless turkey breast, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 green, red or yellow pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1-2 carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 3-4 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 1 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 Tbsp rice or apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sesame oil (optional)
  • 2 cups cubed fresh pineapple

How to Make It

1.

Heat a generous drizzle of oil in a large, heavy skillet set over medium-high heat.

2.

Cook the turkey pieces for a few minutes (don’t worry about cooking them through), until starting to brown on all sides. Set aside.

3.

Add the pepper, carrots and garlic to the pan and sauté for a few minutes, until starting to soften.

4.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl stir the cornstarch into 1 Tbsp. cold water until completely dissolved.

5.

Stir in the stock, ketchup, sugar, rice vinegar, soy sauce and vegetable oil. Set aside.

6.

Add the turkey back to the pan along with the vegetables, and pour the sauce overtop.

7.

Bring to a simmer and cook until the sauce thickens and the turkey is cooked through.

8.

Stir in the pineapple and serve immediately, over rice, topped with nuts if you like.
