  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pork chops and fry on each side until browned, about 3 minutes per side. Pour in the liquid from the pineapple chunks, saving pineapple for later. Stir in the golden syrup and ketchup and season with curry powder, ginger, salt and pepper. Reduce heat to medium, cover and simmer for 30 minutes, or until pork chops are tender.
  2. When the pork chops are tender, pour in the pineapple chunks and add the raisins. Heat through briefly, then serve.

My husband who is a VERY picky eater loved this recipe. I used fresh pineapple and added about 1/2 cup of pineapple juice. I also used brown sugar instead of syrup and omitted the raisins. I wil...

Made this last night with chicken instead of pork and honey instead of golden syrup. It was great! We really enjoyed the sweet sauce. I simmered the chicken for about 10 minutes after brownin...

This recipe is wonderful! I modified it a little by adding red, orange, and green bell peppers just before adding the pineapple. Served over brown rice and with a tossed salad--magnifique!

Aye, 'tis fine food for pirates and land lubbers alike. Lots of flavor little fuss. The sauce for this dish is a tantalizing sweet and tangy glaze. I added a wee splash of rum in honor of pir...
