Great recipe. I saw a review say they would like to see more vegetables with it so this is what I did; I sliced green bell pepper and sweet onion really thin and sauteed them with some garlic in the vegetable oil first, then I added the pork chops and browned them. This added excellent flavor and the bell pepper and onion complemented the pineapple beautifully.



I increased the brown sugar to 2T and used Hoisin instead of chili sauce. The flavour was great although I did overestimate the strength of the Hoisin and only substituted 2T, next time I will increase to ½ C. I let 5 boneless pork loin chops simmer for more than a half hour to ensure tenderness. Just before serving I quickly sautéed ½ a red pepper and ½ a white onion, both chopped into bite sized chunks, and added it to the pork. I will also add a teaspoon more of cornstarch next time as I felt the sauce was a little too thin for the ¾C yield of reserved juice. It really was an eye pleaser and a deliciously sweet indulgence… k



We thought that these were pretty good. I don't like cooked raisins so I used dried cranberries, as someone had suggested. I also saw reviews to double the sauce. I used a large can of pineapple, kept the chili sauce the same and it was just enough. I Also used a green pepper diced and an onion diced. I cooked them with the chops and added the sauce to them. Overall a good tasting pork recipe. Thanks!
