  • 1. Pour 2 cups water into a medium pot. Chop 1 tomato and add to pot. Add lemon, celery, onions, and ginger, and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium and simmer for 20 minutes. Add pineapple juice, vinegar, tomato sauce, and sugar. Mix well, then simmer for 30 minutes more.
  • 2. Meanwhile, season pork with salt, pepper, and garlic powder and set aside for 20 minutes. In a small bowl, mix together flour, 4 tbsp. cornstarch, and enough water (about 1/2 cup) to make a smooth batter. Pour oil into a skillet to a depth of 1 1/2" and heat over medium-high heat until hot, about 350°. Dip pork in batter, shake off excess, then fry in batches until crisp and golden, about 4 minutes per batch. Drain on paper towels.
  • 3. Quarter remaining 2 tomatoes and set aside. Combine remaining 1 tbsp. cornstarch with 2 tbsp. water in a small bowl and mix well. Add cornstarch mixture to sauce, increase heat to medium-high, and simmer for about 2 minutes. Add pineapple to sauce, cook for 30 seconds, then add quartered tomatoes and pork. Heat through, then serve with white rice, if you like.
