  • “I can’t believe that I wrote this review (sept 01) It doesn’t even remotely resemble the posted recipe:My dinner turned out great using your recipe but having to change a few things. I didn’t have any pineapple so I used a tin of cranberries and instead of pinapple juice I used a tin of condensed Vegetable broth with onions, then adjusted the seasoning to match with the altered ingredients..Oh yes I used country spare ribs. It was enjoyed by all! Thanks DianaAdded comments 25 June 04- Well I made this recipe again – this time using the recipe ingredients it was great -Oh Oh- I did add 1 tbsp of Denzel’s Kamikazi hot sauce – Thanks again Di”

  • “Very good recipe, and easy too. I did omit the extra water that was called for and still had MORE than enough liquid to make the sauce.Next time I think I will reduce the sauce by half before adding the rest of the ingredients.”

  • “I gave this recipe 3 stars. This was liked in my house. I wasn’t nuts over the vinegar flavor and I thought this would taste sweeter. This could be because I mixed the ingredients except the pork chops and rice the night before. As a reviewer sais the rice does get over cooked. I think I’ll cook some quick cooking rice and try this again but adding it at the last minute. I think that I leave out the vinegar next time a use pineapple juice. I did use Splenda brown sugar for the brown sugar. Overall this was a good recipe. Thanks for posting a good recipe! Christine (internetnut)”

  • “this was yummy.don’t use all the liquid from the crock pot to mix with vinegar sauce… it would be too runny.i let mine cook down a bit so it was thick.my husband really like the dish – the chops were very tender.crock pot cooking is awesome!”

  • “This was just OK for me.It was more of a dull sweet and sour pork.Probably won’t make it again”

  • “9 hours was too much of cooking.The rice soaked in the liquid too longer.The pork chops were dry.But the taste is good. Next time, I’ll cook this 7 hours at first and then 1 hour more if needed.I couldn’t do the sauce cause I didn’t have liquid left.”

  • “was not really to our taste”
