Received this in an email, sounds so good! Posting for safe keeping and to share with everyone! *marinating overnight not included in prep/cook time.*
- 1 (8 ounce) can pineapple rings, juice drained and reserved
- 1⁄4 cup brown sugar
- 1⁄4 cup soy sauce
- 1⁄4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 4 pork chops
- 1 pinch ground black pepper
- Mix together the drained pineapple juice, brown sugar, soy sauce, and garlic powder together in a large plastic zipper bag, and smush the bag a few times with your hands to mix the marinade and dissolve the sugar.
- Place the pork chops into the marinade, squeeze out any air in the bag, seal it, and refrigerate overnight. Reserve the pineapple rings.
- Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat, and lightly oil the grate.
- Remove the chops from the marinade, shaking off excess, and grill until browned, the meat is no longer pink inside, and the meat shows good grill marks, 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 meat is grilling, place 4 pineapple rings onto the grill, and allow to cook until hot and the slices show grill marks; serve the chops topped with the grilled pineapple rings.
Can I make this without grilling
Wonderful chops!!! I made this in a scaled back version, using one good sized pork steak and then made 1/2 of the marinade. Since is was just me, I didn't want to waste a whole can of pineapple and just used a portion of a small can of pineapple juice. Other then not using the actual pineapple, the only change I made was to decrease the sugar in half, as I am not a fan of really sweet teriyaki sauce. This was very flavorful and so quick to get together!! Thanks so much for sharing the recipe. Made for Photo Tag Game.
I like this recipe because the marinade has no garlic/onion to chop. Easy to do on a weekend when I was busy. The chops were in the marinade overnight. They had a great flavor. Thanks AZPARZYCH :) Made for 123 hit wonders
