Sweet and Sour Ham

Sweet and Sour Ham

Cooked ham is sauteed with peppers and pineapple, cooked in a delicious sweet and sour sauce, then served over rice and garnished with chopped cashews.



  1. Add reserved pineapple juice (from pineapple chunks) to a large glass measuring cup. Add enough water to equal 1 1/2 cups. Whisk in the brown sugar, red pepper, ginger, vinegar, soy sauce and cornstarch until smooth. Set aside.
  2. In a large saute pan, cook the ham, garlic and peppers over medium high heat until just tender. Add the drained pineapple chunks and cook a few minutes longer. Stir in the pineapple juice mixture and bring to a boil.
  3. Continue to simmer, stirring often, until everything is heated through and the vegetables reach desired tenderness. Just before serving, stir in green onions. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Serve over hot cooked rice and sprinkle with chopped cashews.
