I've been missing the pineapples in Philippines because those are really sweet and juicy. I miss the food also when it is marinated with the pineapple juice. The other day, I tried it and used the french pineapple product that I found at the supermarket. It's not that sweet as the one I always used in PI like Dole and Del Monte, but so far, the food came out really tasty. First time for my husband to try something that is marinated with pineapple juice and he loves it. Here's my recipe if you guys are interested:
Pork Chop Steak
1 kl pork chops
1 can pineapple fresh cut sliced pineapple. Reserve the syrup for the marinate and cut the pineapples into 2
2 onions cut into rings
1 red and green bell pepper cut into rings
1/4 cup pineapply syrup
3 tbsp soy sauce
salt and pepper to taste
1. Marinate pork chops for 1 hour. Drain and reserve marinade. Meanwhile, stir-fry onions and bell peppers in oil. Set aside.
2. Brown both sides of the pork chops in oil. Combine with remaining marinade and 1/4 cup water. Simmer over low heat for 20 minutes. Add DEL MONTE Fresh Cut Sliced Pineapple, onions and bell peppers. Simmer for another 5 minutes.
