    I put my pork in a 375* oven after browing.Some of those spices ,like paprika for instance,burn if pan seared to long.Another 10/15 min. is about right depending on thickness of meat.I use this on most meats for this reason.....Chef Jim - 1/11/09

    i was disappointed with the seasoning. Seemed alot of spices overpowered by the pineapple... I liked the combination of spices, just would rethink the amount and method of flavoring the pork..... - 1/12/09
