I changed this recipe around to be more like an actual pina colada, and it turned out amazing! I only gave it 4 stars because of all of the changed I felt I had to make, but I didn't make it the original way. It just seems bland. First, I marinated the pork longer than what it says to do - probably about 30 minutes. I added a full lime to the marinade, and then added some limeade to completely submerge the pork chops. I used fresh coconut water, and ended up using all that was in the coconut (I wanted more coconut flavor than what the recipe called for). I added about 3 tablespoons of rum extract (I liked a lot of rum flavor too - others may want to use less). I also added a small can of crushed pineapple. Then to thicken it, I put a bit of corn starch in it, boiled it, then simmered it for about 10 minutes. The end result was fantastic. Next time I may use coconut cream instead, and maybe even some real rum.
