I enjoy experimenting in the kitchen and adapting recipes to suit my tastes. In this one, I give everyday pork chops extra flair by simmering them in tangy sauce. Palate-pleasing rice adds texture.

MAKES: 4 servings


  • 4 boneless pork loin chops (3/4 inch thick)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon-pepper seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon plus 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 cup sweet-and-sour sauce
  • 1 can (20 ounces) pineapple chunks, drained
  • 1/2 medium green pepper, julienned
  • 1/2 cup chopped red onion
  • 6 cups cold cooked rice
  • 1/4 cup stir-fry sauce


  1. Sprinkle pork chops with lemon-pepper. In a large skillet, brown chops on both sides in 1 teaspoon oil over medium-high heat; remove and set aside. Drain skillet; add sweet-and-sour sauce and pineapple chunks. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; return chops to skillet. Simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes or until meat juices run clear.
  2. Meanwhile, in another skillet, saute the green pepper and onion in remaining oil for 2 minutes. Add rice and stir-fry sauce; cook and stir for 4 minutes or until lightly browned. Transfer to a serving platter; top with pork chops. Yield: 4 servings.

"This is the 4th time that I've made this dish and I absolutely love it! The rice and sweet and sour really work well with the pineapple and natural flavor of the pork. It's a fun recipe to cook and my girlfriend loves it when I come home from the store with that can of pineapples. :)"

"Pretty good, but a little too sweet for our tastes. May make again but use more stir-fry sauce and less sweet and sour sauce to tone it down a bit."
