As a mum of five hungry kids back in the day I loved recipes like this that take just a few minutes, fills them up, still full of goodness and really like a takeaway without any of the negatives to do with that. This should have been in our Fakeaway cookbook, (free to Insiders and you can get your copy HERE) but we just keep coming up with great newbies all the time. There should be a bumper cookbook with all the goodies in it...oh wait, The Weekend Table is exactly that!
Anyway, as always, pork and pineapple go together so well, that we just keep coming up with new ways to marry them off. If you haven't tried any yet, it is time to try some of these other great versions we have on here:
