Recipe by Queen Dragon Mom
Original poster's comment:Really yummy! This is a recipe adopted in the 2005 rush. I haven't tried it, but from the ingredients I agree with the reviewer's comment about bland so.... when I make it, these are the changes I will probably make: subtitutions would be hoisin for catsup, snow peas for beans. Additions would be minced or sliced ginger, mirin or sherry for part or all of the liquids, crushed chilis in the marinade.
- 7 pieces pork chops
- 2 tablespoons catsup
- 1 teaspoon crushed garlic
- 1 onion, sliced

- 1⁄2 cup water
- 1 (20 ounce) cansliced pineapple, drained and reserve syrup
- 1⁄2 lb string bean, cut into 3 inch
- pineapple syrup
