PREPARATION: 

Preheat roaster to 425 deg F. Add peanut oil; cover, heat 3 to 5 minutes. Carefully add meat to hot oil. Cover, cook 8 to 10 minutes or until meat browns. In small bowl, combine soy sauce, brown sugar, lemon juice and Worcestershire sauce, stir to blend. Pour over meat. Reduce temperature to 325 deg F. Cover; cook 15 to 20 minutes or until meat is tender. Mix pineapple juice and corn starch; stir until smooth. Stir into meat mixture. Add pineapple, green pepper, pea pods and green onions. Cover, cook 8 to 10 minutes until sauce thickens and becomes clear and vegetables are heated through. Serve over hot rice.

HINTS: I prefer my bell peppers a little softer, so I added them to the meat mixture after it had cooked about 8 minutes. Also, my sauce did not thicken enough so I mixed another tbsp of corn starch with just enough water to form a smooth paste and added it to the roaster.
