Reviews for Tropical Pork Chops
"This is a family favorite. I've been making this recipe on a regular basis for 10 years."
"I agree with the previous review the taste of the mustard is to strong, it over powers all of the other flavors. Next time I will only use 1 tablespoon of mustard. Other than that it was easy to make & good !"
"This had way too much mustard for my taste and I like mustard. I ended up making twice the amount of sauce but with half the amount of mustard. I wasn't sure if pineapple was supposed to be drained so I added half the juice from the can. I really liked it with these minor adjustments."
"A delicious sweet-sour pork dish>"
"I have been looking for a recipe like this for so long! I'll be serving it tomorrow night, and I'm really looking forward to it."
