Excellent recipe! Found it in my Joy of Cooking cookbook years ago. I've made a couple of adjustments to suit my family's tastes. Original recipe can be found on page 480.

This was simple to make yet very tasty. I will definately make it again. I added a couple gloves of garlic to the oil to brown the pork and tossed in a handful of walnuts with the pineapple. I served it over brown rice. Hubby raved over it.
