We had this last night (and I am having the left overs for lunch today) and what a great and different way for pork. We loved the citrus flavors (2 1/2 year old son included). The dish is just real pretty to serve as well. Will be making this over and over again...thanks for posting!!

Great! The only change I made was substituting 3 tablespoons of grapeseed oil for the 1/2 cup of butter and finishing off the dish with 1 tablespoon of butter at the end.

This was a really interesting dish. Gorgeous citrus flavour that compliments and doesn't overwhelm the pork. I used 5-alive instead of orange juice and mandarin oranges because that's what I had in the house, and it seemed to work out well. My pineapple was *really* sweet (a very ripe fresh one) and this overpowered it a little, but that's my pineapple's fault, not the recipe:). Bikelap is right, it is a really pretty dish, especially if you serve the orange slices on the plate for garnish. It's pretty mild, could maybe do with a tiny bit more kick- either more paprika or more hot sauce, but just a little.
