      Crazy good delicious. Sweet, but not "too", and perfectly spicy. Followed this exactly, but I've got to say - I thought the nutritional facts looked suspect (i.e., 98 calories per serving?) I decided to feed the exact ingredients into in a separate window ("submit a recipe") to see what I would get. It computed 416 calories per serving! That didn't sound right, either, given that a small boneless pork loin chop is about 191 calories. (I wouldn't be fussing about the calories but I'm trying to shed a few pounds before going to sunny Florida in February and I'm hyper.) I guess, as made, these chops come out to be about 250 calories a serving? Oh who cares anyway - they're delicious! And I do mean delicious! Thanks for a Certain Keeper.

      I would actually give this recipe a 3 1/2. I followed the recipe exactly and the sauce did thicken but not by much. I used centre cut bonless chops and crushed pinneapple. It was very delicious and I would definately make it again, but it seemed to be missing something important.......

      These were pretty darn good! I fixed them for dinner last nite and everyone enjoyed them. I had center cut bone-in chops and they were fall off the bone tender. Thanks for posting. This one goes into my regular monthly rotation.
