I'm always cooking Pork joints too much and then they go hard and inedible - We all loved this recepie and it was done in the time it took to cook some new potatoes and veg to go with it. Fab & easy midweek meal*****

Super, east recipe. Very quick to make. I prefer to mix up ALL the ingredients and cook briefly with the pork and pinepple. We enjoy spicy food so I halve all the ingredients when cooking for 2 , but still use 1 tbsp soy sauce and a heaped tsp chilli powder. Also - I double up on the pineapple rings and use all of the juice.

Really good. Deceptively easy and a bit different! I used half the sugar and a light soy sauce and it worked wonderfully.
