I made this tonight for the first time. My husband and I loved it. We will be having the leftover meat and salsa tomorrow and will pair it with fresh cooked spinach with garlic as well as cajun rice. I will definately make this again and again.

A go-to recipe for us; everything works perfectly together, with a side of rice. I use canned pineapple and jalapeno slices.

This was delicious. I made everything exactly as written, but marinated the pork for ~10 hours. I served it with coconut baked rice and the pineapple salsa and it was perfect. Great amount of heat, with some sweetness, balanced with the creamy coconut rice. Perfect.

Tremendously flavorful and tender. I didn't use a grill - I marinated the pork all day then sauted slices of tenderloin. Served with the salsa and some rice, this was very quick and delectable.

This was great. I would definitely serve this to company. The only thing I did differently was to not add the jalapenos to the salsa to tone it down for my six year old. We had this with roasted asparagus.

This was awesome! The salsa was pretty H-O-T (2 jalepenos plus a chipotle chile may have been overkill) but the flavors were intense and delicious.
