Tropical Pork Chops

Sunday dinner rolled around and I wasn't sure what to make. A quick search on All Receips and 30 minutes later we had this, and it was good! I cut the pork into strips instead of leaving them whole, and I didn't have any pineapple tidbits in the house but it was still a great meal.

Tropical Pork Chops

1/3 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons prepared mustard
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoons soy sauce
1/8 teaspoon garlic salt
1/8 teaspoon onion salt
dash cayenne pepper
4 boneless pork loin chops cut into strips
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup chopped onion
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/3 cup water
1/4 cup pineapple tidbits

In a saucepan, combine the first eight ingredients. Cover and simmer until sugar is dissolved, about 5-10 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside. Season pork chops with salt and pepper. In a skillet, cook pork, onion and garlic in oil until meat is browned. Add water and reserved sauce. Cover and cook over medium-low heat for 20-25 minutes or until the meat is no longer pink, adding more water if needed. Stir in pineapple and heat through. Serve over rice.

*Note: Next time I make this I will add more water and let everything simmer together for 45-60 minutes to tenderize the pork.
