This was really good! I love anything with pineapples and my husband doesn't but he liked it in this. And usually he puts a ton of black pepper, pepper seeds, and/or parmesan cheese on everything and he didn't add anything to this. I didn't read the recipe very well though and used regular rice instead of minute rice (and I kept saying - I KNOW rice doesn't cook that fast), so I had to cook it much longer, but the chops were still tender. And also I just put a tsp of garlic powder and that was enough, like I said my husband didn't add anything to it.
