This was a very good, simple sweet 'n sour pork recipe. Thanks! Made for ZWT4: Family Picks.
We really enjoyed this recipe. It is a different way to prepare pork chops and they turn out nice and juicy. The pineapple is wonderful. You can taste the cider vinegar which was quite nice. The sauce thickens up to a perfect consistency. I will def. make this recipe. This was made for ZWT4. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
