Hawaiian Pork: Pan-Fried Pork Chops with Pineapple Sauce

Cooking pork with pineapple does not only give a sweet sour taste to your dishes, but it also can help your digestion, because the pineapple contains the enzyme which breaks down the protein from the pork. Eating pineapple and any kind of meat at the same time is stomach friendly, but in this recipe, marinating with pineapple can also soften the pork.
