    1. If necessary, pound pork to 1/4-inch thickness. Sprinkle cutlets with salt and pepper. In large nonstick skillet, heat 2 teaspoons oil over medium-high heat; add cutlets and sauté 3-4 minutes on each side, until cooked through. Remove cutlets to plate, cover with foil to keep warm.
    2. In same skillet, heat remaining 2 teaspoons oil over medium heat; add red pepper (reserve a few slices for garnish), ginger and pineapple with 2 tablespoons water. Cover skillet and cook over medium heat 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until pepper is tender. Meanwhile, prepare couscous per package directions.
    3. Place couscous on serving platter, arrange cutlets on top, pour hot sauce over cutlets and garnish with reserved red pepper strips.
