Pineapple Pork #SundaySupper

Pineapple Pork #SundaySupperAs the summer comes closer and closer we want to share some tropical ideas so you can have lots of options to make in the summer for dinner, lunch, breakfast you name it.
Easy and delicious recipes like my Pineapple Pork a very simple way to incorporated some everyday recipes in a very peculiar way.
This is a dish inspired by one of my favorites Chinese Restaurants in Costa Rica, they make a dish very similar to this one and it was my favorite. The best part it was the amount of pineapple and sometimes coconut they use to put in the sauce.
Since we move here I try to find sometime similar but it was impossible, so I decided to make my own version and that is the history of how this delicious Pineapple Pork was born.
Like I said before is super easy to make, with a few ingredients, perfect over rice or pasta, and the best part you can make it in 20 minutes.
Hope you like.

  • 3/4 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 1 teaspoon of corn starch
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Heat a large pan to medium heat, add salt and pepper to the porch chops and sear each one just to make it golden brown delicious, at this point they don’t need to be completely cook.
