2 tsp soy sauce
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 red onion
6 ounces (1 cup) snow peas
1 (20 ounce) can diced pineapple, drained

Add pork & cook, stirring occasionally & breaking up clumps, until lightly browned, about 3 minutes. (While pork cooks, prepare sauce.) Transfer pork to clean bowl.

2. STIR-FRY VEGETABLES & PINEAPPLE: Add 1 more tbsp of oil to pan & return to high heat until shimmering. Add onion & snow peas & cook, stirring frequently, until softened, about 3 minutes. Add pineapple & cook until warmed through.

3. COMBINE & SIMMER: Clear center of pan & add remaining 1 tsp oil, garlic, & ginger. Cook, mashing garlic mixture into pan with back of spatula until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in cooked pork. Whisk sauce to recombine, add it to pan, & bring to simmer. Cook until sauce thickens, 1 to 2 minutes. Serve immediately.
