Tropical Pork Chops

"I WAS FORTUNATE to visit my grandmother's birthplace in Hawaii, where I met relatives who taught me how to make this dish. It's been a family favorite since I brought the recipe home. The pineapple is a sweet surprise. -Jeanette Babineau, Grand Junction, Colorado"

  1. In a saucepan, combine the first eight ingredients. Cover and simmer until sugar is dissolved, about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat; set aside. Season pork chops with salt and pepper. In a skillet, cook pork, onion and garlic in oil until meat is browned. Add water and reserved sauce. Cover and cook over medium-low heat for 20-25 minutes or until the meat is no longer pink, adding more water if needed. Stir in pineapple and heat through. Serve over rice.
