Lovely, quick and easy. We used chicken instead of pork. Rated a 5/5 by myself and my 10 year old!

Great recipe - lovely tangy sauce and the pork and pineapple compliment each other beautifully. Served it with rice and stir-fried veg.

I did this for one, with Jasmine rice and pak-choi. I kept the sauce volume high though. It was absolutely wonderful and would be very happy to serve it to guests. Fantstic
