    Wow, for as simple a recipe as this is we sure had a tasty dinner tonight! And I like that you could build on this any way you really wanted to. I didn't rinse the marinade off the chops. Instead I actually added some pineapple tidbits and cornstarch to it and boiled it up for a sauce to top it. How yummy! Next time maybe I'll add some red pepper flakes or some chili paste to the marinade for a sweet/spicy mix. Great marinade recipe, it's a keeper!

    Wonderful marinade! I used this on a large pork loin and it was so tender and juicy after only 2 hours of marinating. I used apple juice and added freshly grated ginger and a dash of garlic powder. I can't wait to try it with pineapple juice instead.

    This made me think I was on a tropical island. I loved the infusion of pineapple in the meat. It was great on the grill.

    LOVED IT, LOVED IT, LOVED IT! That is what a marinade should be - a few ingredients that are common in your pantry and you can use over again. I purchase the small juice size cans of pineapple juice, so I used part of that and drank the rest... I only used 1/4 cup of soy sauce but would use the 1/2 recommended next time. For those of you who shy away from soy sauce like I do, the mixture smells very stong, but is not after the meat is cooked.

    Yum! I used this recipe to serve to company and it was enjoyed by all, even the kids! I didn't let it marinade for more than 2 hours but the meat was still super moist and tender. I loved the fact that I always have all on the ingredients in the house.I will definately use this marinade again.
