meat - Pork, shrimp, beef or chicken
2 eggs
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 c. flour
2 tbsp. water
1 c. vinegar
1 c. water
1 c. sugar
3/4 tsp. salt
Dash of pepper
2 tbsp. oil
3 large green peppers
2 c. canned cubed pineapple
3 tbsp. cornstarch
3 tbsp. catsup
2 large tomatoes

MEAT: Pork or shrimp are best for this dish. Pork: (or beef) Cut into 1/2- 1in. squares. Boil for 3-4 minutes. Drain. Shrimp: Shell, wash and drain the shrimp.

Prepare batter, mixing: eggs, salt, flour and water. Dip meat in batter and place in deep hot oil and fry brown.

SAUCE: Place vinegar, water, sugar, salt, pepper, oil, green pepper, pineapple, cornstarch and catsup in pot and bring to boil.

Add meat to sauce mixture 3-4 minutes before serving or at time of serving. (Add only enough for one serving bowl--- when you refill, add the rest. This prevents them from getting soggy). Add tomatoes when dishing it up ---- cut in 1 in. pieces. They will overcook if added sooner.
