  • 1 x 400 g can pineapple pieces
  • 2 T soya sauce
  • 1 T white wine vinegar
  • 2 T tomato sauce
  • 1 t brown sugar
  • 2 red chillies, chopped
  • 1 green chilli, chopped
  • 1 star anise
  • 1 kg pork loin chops
  • Salad, for serving

Cooking Instructions

Blend the pineapple, soya sauce, vinegar, tomato sauce and sugar until smooth. Add the chillies and star anise and mix well.

Pour the marinade over the chops in a ceramic dish. Cover with clingwrap and chill for 3 hours or overnight.

Place the meat on a preheated grid and braai over medium coals for 20 minutes or until cooked, turning halfway. Serve with salad.

Cook's note: I can't resist making this version of sweet-and-sour pork on the braai.

      Hi Dalene

      You sure can! Just pop them in at 200 degrees for 10-15 minutes. Keep basting them with the marinade though.
