    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 food.com 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.

    LOL..my husband also cooked this meal and it was pretty good. We kept having to put off dinner for about an hour, but even at that the pork was very tender and the sauce was a sweet/sour one, which I happen to like. Thanks for posting.
