Tasty sauce and easy to make. However, I found the pork a bit dry...think it was overcooked, and I didn't think there was quite enough sauce (I like to use the sauce with my rice too). If I try it again I would not re-add the meat until the pineapple goes in and may reduce the 10 minutes cooking time in that step. I would also increase the sauce ingredients.
