Ingredients Nutrition


  1. 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.
  2. Place the pork chops into the marinade, squeeze out any air in the bag, seal it, and refrigerate overnight. Reserve the pineapple rings.
  3. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat, and lightly oil the grate.
  4. 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.
  5. Brush several times with marinade and let the marinade cook onto the surface of the meat. Discard excess marinade.
  6. 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
