This was good but we thought it was way too sweet. I would make this again but cut way down on the sugar. The meat was very tender (I used boneless pork chops). Only used half the pineapple amount and added minced garlic and carrots. Served over white rice. I had a problem with it sticking to the bottom of the pan, so finished it in the oven. Thank You.

What a great meal. We all enjoyed it, including our almost-two-year-old who's very hit or miss when it comes to meat. Thanks for the recipe! (Just had to add one more star... made this again and YUM.)

I have no idea if this is authentic Jamaican or not but, it is indeed tasty! Two tablespoons of brown sugar is not a lot. Paired with the vinegar, it makes for a perfect sweet and sour sauce. I modified the recipe only because I had some items in the fridge that begged to be tossed in. I added some red pepper flakes, some chopped celery, some matchstick carrot sticks and some whole cranberries (leftover from Christmas).

Its not "Jamaican" But it is very sweet and sour. We prefer a little more complex flavors so I added half an unseeded Jalapeno, a few shakes of red pepper flakes and some diced carrots. And we served it over brown rice.This gave it a little heat and complexity. I have leftovers since its only my son and I so I tossed in 2 bay leaves as it cooled to see how that flavors it over night. I also stored the rice in with the stew and will reheat it all together. I think this would be better in general with a few more complex flavors but I have not yet determined what they should be.

I followed the recipe and as I was putting it all together I started to think this was like a Sweet and Sour dish and sure enough when it was done and I tasted it that is exactly what it was like. It was way to sweet for my liking and if I were to make it again I would reduce the sugar substantially. I served it on a bed of brown rice and added it to my food blog.<br/>http://christopherbennetts.com/asianfood/jamaican-pork-stew/

Uh - YUM! This was fabulous. I cut down the sugar by half, but all the other amounts stayed the same, and it was perfect. I even ended up simmering it for an hour and a half, and the meat was still moist and delicious. And that sauce is to die for! Next time I might even try making it spicier :) Thank you!
