Sticky Pineapple Pork

This is one of th efavourite meals of all my children, so I make this often. Luckily, me & my husband love it too! Pork chops are one of my favourite meats, and I love Chinese flavours, so this meal is a real winner. After a day of rain (lovely summer we are having!) it was the perfect warm-up. We had jersey royal potatoes and sweetcorn with ours. There was cheesecake for pudding, but everyone was too full. I might have some for supper later (shhh!).

1 boneless pork chop per person (or 2 if you have a hungry husband like mine!)
1 tablespoon Chinese 5 spice
1 large red onion, sliced into wedges
1 red pepper, cut into chunks
2 tablspoons honey
1 tablespoon dark soy sauce
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
140g tin pineapple chunks

Dust the pork chops on each side with the chinese 5 spice & rub in gently. Heat some oil in a frying pan, and cook the chops for around 6 minutes each side. Remove the chops to a warm plate, add another little drop of oil to the pan. Gently fry the onion & pepper until softened. Add the drained pineapple chunks and stri fry for about a minute. Add the honey, soy sauce, vinegar and the pork chops. Simmer for 5 minutes, turning the chops to glaze them in the sticky sauce. Serve with rice, noodles or potatoes,
