  1. This recipe sounds amazing. I really appreciate the note that other veggies could be added.Do you have any tips on knowing when the pork chop is done?

  2. I am having trouble finding where and when you use the pineapples and sweet and sour sauce in this recipe. Could you please point it out to me. I am going to make this today. Thanks! Carol

  3. Newbie around here!If anyone is interested in making their own sweet & sour sauce, I’ve found this to be a good recipe:2 1/2 tsp. cornstarch
    1 c. cold water
    4 tbsp. sugar
    5 tbsp. brown sugar
    4 tbsp. ketchup
    1 tbsp. vegetable or canola oil
    1/3 c. green onions, chopped small
    1/4 tsp. red hot pepper flakes or Tabasco sauce, optional
    2 tbsp. fresh ginger, finely shredded
    1 tbsp. cooking rice wine
    1 tbsp. sesame oilCombine cornstarch and 1/4 cup water to make a cold slurry. Stir in remaining water. Whisk in white sugar, brown sugar and ketchup to dissolve. Set aside.In a small saucepan, saute onion, pepper and ginger in 1 teaspoon of oil for 1 minute until aromatic.Add wine; cook until it boils, reduce heat and stir constantly. Slowly add the cornstarch mixture and cook for about 1 more minute.Add 1 teaspoon sesame oil to finish off.

    1. Hi Areesah, thanks for the recipe! I personally have been making more of my own sauces to cut down on sodium. I’ll have to try this out. 🙂

  4. A few weeks ago, I packaged and then froze the Aloha pork. When we ate it tonight, my husband raved about how good it was. Thanks for a winner!

    1. I haven’t tried it in the slow cooker but I do think it will work- you could do chops or a whole loin. If you try it, let me know what you think!

  5. Should that be 4 pork chops instead of 4 pounds of pork chops? Four pounds would be an awful lot to serve four!

  6. So are the ingredients for cooking one meal and then I should double for freezer? Or are the amounts already doubled?

    1. The serving size for this recipe (ingredients listed here) is 4. With membership, recipes are doubled for efficiency.
