Tip in the soy mix and let it bubble around the pork and pineapple for a few mins until slightly reduced and sticky. Sprinkle with coriander, and serve with rice and Chinese greens.

Used pork shoulder steaks which were a little tough with quick cooking. And had to remove the pork to fry rather than boil, when pineapple added. Will try with chicken breast next time as above

Why have you given the recipe two stars when you didn't even follow the recipe?

This was a great mid-week supper. Served it with home-grown baby new potatoes and carrots. It was easy to make just half for two people.

It doesn't seem to be said how much you need of soy sauce - just 1 tbsp.
It's very easy and tasty - gives the pork juicy spiced taste. Excellent

We enjoyed this recipe. Not being pork fans here I substituted the pork steaks for chicken fillets and it worked very well. I also served it with couscous.
