I hope you like this Spiced Pineapple Pork (and sorry about the pic). I thought the flavours worked well.
Brown sugar (about 1/3 cup)
Tomato paste – about a dessertspoonful
Pineapple rings (drained but keep the juice)
½ tsp chilli powder
1 tsp five spice powder
Salt & pepper
Soy sauce – a good splash
Parsley (chopped) and ½ chilli sliced for garnish
Brown the steaks in the oil. Set aside and then caramelise your pineapple rings in the same pan. I wasn't quite patient enough to get a really good colour (no surprises there).
Add your chilli powder and 5 spice to the pan. After a couple of minutes add all the other ingredients except the garnish.
Finish the steaks in a lowish oven with the pineapple rings on top while reducing the sauce in the pan – just means boil the heck out of it until it is a nice thick consistency.
Pour the reduced sauce over your pork and pineapple, sprinkle the parsley and chilli over as garnish.
Serve with rice.
