Cuban Pork with Pineapple

 
yield4 portions

While the pork, pineapple, and onion marinate, cook rice and heat canned black beans to serve alongside. (Or, for more intense flavor, marinate the pork the night before.) Serve this cuban dish with coleslaw dressed with a white wine vinaigrette spiked with cumin seeds, chopped fresh cilantro, and minced garlic.
