This was very good and easy. The entire family enjoyed it! I did replace the raisins with craisins because we prefer them.

Brown sugar, pineapple juice and raisins? You call this diabetic friendly? I am diabetic and my blood sugar would spike dangerously if I ate this!

I didn't really like this recipe. I thought that it lacked flavor. I salvaged this by making the Savory Beer Porkchops recipe.

A really flavorful dish - unique flavors that really compliment each other and a fantastic make-ahead dinner.
