Pork with Pineapple Chipotle Sauce - Recipe

This is a variation of Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Pineapple Chipotle Sauce.

1 cup pineapple juice (I just used the juice from a 20 ounce can of pineapple chunks packed in juice)
1/4 cup vinegar
1 tbs chipotle in adobo sauce, minced
1 tbs lime juice
1 tsp dried oregano (or 1 tbs fresh oregano)
pepper to taste
1 tsp salt
1/2 tbs coarsely ground pepper
1 tbs chili powder
12 oz pork (I used a lean cut, cut into 1" chunks)
1/2 tsp olive oil (or use nonstick spray)

1. Combine the pineapple juice, vinegar, and chipotle in a pan. Simmer, stirring often, until the mixture is thick (to coat the back of a spoon). Remove from heat and add lime juice, oregano, and pepper.

2. In a small bowl, mix salt, pepper, and chili powder. Mix/rub into the pork.

3. Heat the olive oil/nonstick spray and brown the pork. In the oven or stove top, cook the meat to 160 degrees F. Remove from heat and let it rest for 5 minutes. Stir sauce over the pork and serve.

This makes 3-4 servings.

It was really, really good but way too spicy for me. My husband loved it. I would like to make it again, but cut the chipotle in half.
