On rack in broiling pan broil pork cubes until rare; set aside.
In 1 1/2-quart saucepan heat oil; add onion and garlic and saute until onion is translucent.
Stir in pork cubes, green pepper, chili powder, and cumin; add tomato sauce, water, salt, and red pepper and stir to combine.
Cover and let simmer, stirring occasionally, until pork is fork-tender, about 45 minutes.
