    Pork chops marinate overnight in a sweet-savoury mixture of pineapple juice, brown sugar and soy sauce before they're barbecued and served with char-grilled pineapple slices.

    Serves: 4 

    • 1 (227g) tin pineapple rings, juice drained and reserved
    • 4 tablespoons brown sugar, or to taste
    • 4 tablespoons soy sauce
    • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
    • 4 pork chops
    • 1 pinch freshly ground black pepper

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Extra time:8hr marinating  ›  Ready in:8hr25min 

    1. Mix together the drained pineapple juice, brown sugar, soy sauce and garlic powder together in a large plastic zipper bag; zeal the bag and shake a few times to mix the marinade and dissolve the sugar. Place the pork chops into the marinade, squeeze out any air in the bag and seal it; refrigerate overnight. Reserve the pineapple rings.
    2. Preheat an outdoor barbecue for medium heat and lightly oil the grilling grate.
    3. Remove the chops from the marinade; shake off excess and barbecue chops until char-grilled and no longer pink inside, 5 to 8 minutes per side. Brush several times with marinade and let the marinade cook onto the surface of the meat. Discard excess marinade. While the pork is cooking, place 4 pineapple rings onto the barbecue and allow to cook until hot and charred.
    4. Serve the chops topped with the grilled pineapple rings.

    Due to bad planning on my part, these stayed in my fridge for 48 hours before being grilled tonight. YUMMY!!! Hubby says it's the best pork chop he's had in a long time. Tender, juicy, tasty, extremely easy to put together, this is no brainer for my regular summer rotation. Thanks for posting this keeper. Don't change a thing, it's perfect as is.  -  11 Jul 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Easy, quick, and delicious. The pork came out very juicy and flavorful. The only change I made was to add a little ginger. A repeat recipe, for sure!  -  08 Jul 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I was looking for a different way to fix pork chops on the grill and tried this recipe. This is a definite 5 star!  -  19 Jun 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
