Yummy! Read many of the reviews that said this was bland, & a couple said they expected more of a sweet & sour flavor. This is NOT like the typical "sweet & sour pork" recipe, the sweet/sour flavors are very mild & IMO very delicious. I used the exact ingredients/amounts stated, the pineapple chunks I used were "in 100% pineapple juice" & along with clover honey it had a lovely hint of sweet/sour flavor. My soy sauce was regular Kikkoman & I did not find it too salty as some said, I hate too much salty flavor & I thought this recipe was spot on (& what's up with someone saying the salt flavor was too much because the pork is already salty....what kind of pork are they using that's already salty?) The sauce is a bit on the thin side so if you prefer a more gravy-like sauce I'd suggest omitting the water. I personally prefer a more tender pork chop that can be cut with a fork, so I went ahead & simmered for perhaps 25-30 minutes longer than the recipe states which also made my sauce thicker. I would give this recipe 4 1/2 stars for flavor, but bumped it up to 5 stars because it's so incredibly easy to make.
