Seasoned with honey, ginger, lemon and pineapple juice, the yummy sauce adds delightful flavor to this distinctive dish.

    My whole family enjoyed these pork chops. The sweetness of the pineapple sauce and apples adds a nice flavor to the neutral taste of the pork.

    I did not care for this recipe at all. The sauce tasted good, but I found that the pork was too tough from the quick cooking method.
