Before starting, preheat your broiler to high and wash and dry all produce. Add 2 1/2 cups water in a medium pot. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Meanwhile, core then cut peppers into 1/2-inch pieces. Cut pineapple into 1/2-inch pieces. Thinly slice green onions. Peel, then mince or grate garlic. Pat pork dry with paper towels, then season with 1 tsp garlic salt and pepper.
Add rice to boiling water. Reduce heat to low. Cover and cook, until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 12-14 min.
While rice cooks, heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil, then pork. Pan-fry, until golden-brown, 2-3 min per side. Remove the pan from heat, then transfer pork to a foil-lined baking sheet. Spoon half the sweet chili sauce over pork. Broil in middle of oven, until cooked through, 6-8 min.**
While pork cooks, heat the same pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil, then peppers. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender-crisp, 3-4 min. Add pineapple and garlic. Cook, stirring often, until warmed through, 1-2 min. Season with remaining garlic salt and pepper. Remove the pan from heat and transfer pineapple mixture to a plate.
Fluff rice with a fork. Heat the same pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil, then rice. Cook, stirring often, until any liquid has been absorbed and rice begins to brown, 2-3 min. Add peas, soy sauce, pineapple mixture, half the green onions, remaining sweet chili sauce and any pork juices from the baking sheet. Stir together, until warmed through, 1-2 min.
Thinly slice pork. Divide pineapple fried rice between plates. Top with pork and sprinkle with remaining green onions.
