Pineapple Pork Recipe

Pineapples are never in season here in Ireland but there is a time of year when you start seeing them in the stores more often. That time starts around in March when spring rolls around. It is also when the pineapples start to be very sweet and juicy. Pineapple pork is a sweet and savoury dish that I like to serve in pineapple bowls. Using the pineapple to make a bowl also helps you to know how much pineapple you need because one pineapple serves two people. So whether you are serving 2 or 10 people you will always have the right amount of pineapple. A good way to know how much pork you need is one pork chop person. Add your favorite veggies and that makes this dish very simple to make. This recipe can serve 4 people and 1 toddler ;).
