In a large sauté pan, stir fry pork in hot oil until lightly browned. Remove pork; reserve. In the same pan, sauté bell pepper and onion; cook until tender crisp, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic; cook for 1 minute. Stir in coconut milk and salt; bring to a boil. Reduce to simmer. Stir in spinach, pear and sugar; simmer until spinach wilts, stirring frequently, about 5 minutes. Return pork to the pan to reheat. Remove from heat; stir in lemon juice. Keep warm in a counter pan or cool and reheat per order. Serve with rice.
