To celebrate Fairtrade Fortnight here’s a Pork and Pineapple Stir Fry recipe made using some of the Co-op’s Fairtrade ingredients. A quick an easy recipe that’s also seriously tasty!



Pork and Pineapple Stir Fry

This easy to cook stir-fry is ideal for those looking for a quick and tasty dinner, and is an indulgent lunch option too.
Cook Time 25 minutes
Servings 2


  • 2 tbsp Oil
  • 450 g Pork fillet
  • 3 tbsp Soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp Rice Wine Vinegar
  • 2 tsp Fairtrade brown sugar
  • 3 Small carrots peeled
  • 1 Green and 1 Yellow pepper
  • Fresh pineapple cut into chunks
  • Rice to serve


  1. Pour the oil into a wok and heat. Add the carrots, onion and pepper to get softening.
  2. Cut the pork into chunky strips and add into the pan. Stir-fry for ten minutes before stirring in the soy sauce and vinegar to add that unique sweet and sour flavour.
  3. Add in pineapple, pre-cut into small chunks, and stir into the wok until all ingredients are cooked thoroughly. Splash in a few tbsp of water if you think the mixture is sticking.
  4. Serve with egg fried rice.

    I rarely cook with Pork but this looks delicious! I walk by a mini Co-Op every day so it tends to be where I stop off for essentials we’ve run out off – though I can never resist their jam doughnuts!

      Their jam donuts are so tasty!

    It was only up until about a year ago that I hated the idea of pineapple in savoury food. But I love it now and it sounds delicious in this easy stir fry.

      I am all for pineapple in savoury food! It’s a fairly new thing, I didn’t as a kid.

    I love Co-op food. Our nearest is miles away but when I do get there the food is always so fresh and I love their ethos. This dish looks yummy – I don’t think we do enough with pork. Far too much chicken in this house.

      Ours isn’t close but I do like to head on down every so often. We don’t use pork much either, but this was a good recipe to try out with it!

    I love that Coop are such advocates of fair trade. This looks really delicious!

      I do too! It’s a good cause to champion!
