The flavors of this dish mix really well together. We like this served over brown rice, it makes a nice dish.

Great flavor and very easy. I had thinly sliced pork sirloin and did not need to simmer it in the juice for more than a minute. I used rice wine vinegar and ginger root, and a 14 ounce can of pineapple was plenty. I'll use even more garlic next time, and may throw in a couple tablespoons of ketchup. I also plan to add broccoli and use a red bell pepper for more color.
