Pork Roast or Chops with Apricot Pineapple glaze

Nor A.M


This roast is not overly sweet. It has savory tones. I added herbs, garlic and apricot to this roast with a nice glaze. The result was a big success. We enjoyed it immensely. I will be making this dish again and again. I served it with a side of smashed potatoes with garlic. I hope you all enjoy this delicious dish.
