MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 16, 2014

Very easy and very good! I didn't have any green peppers, but I had everything else on the ingredients list, so I thought I would try this last night for a change in our normal pork chop meal. I used a bit more onion than what it calls for, and I used crushed pineapple instead of chunks because it was what I had in the cupboard. Very flavorful! I will definitely be making this again!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 2, 2013

I thought this was bland and tasteless, which surprised me. I won't even finish my plate. It is easy, but I won't fix it again.

This is very good but I did make some modifications. I substituted fresh cut up pinnapple and also added some garlic, fresh seedless jalapeno peper and a sprinkle of crushed red pepper to balance the sweetness of the original recipe and to add depth.
