Cook these pineapple pork chops in slow cooker, on the grill, or broil them. Serve the pork chops with rice or baked potatoes for a tasty everyday dinner.

The pork is marinated with the pineapple overnight and then the pork is cooked with the pineapple marinade mixture.

Ingredients

  • 6 pork chops
  • 1 can (20 ounces) pineapple chunks with juice
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • Optional: Fresh or canned pineapple chunks, for garnish
  • Optional: Fresh chopped cilantro, for garnish

Steps to Make It

  1. Put pork chops in a plastic zip-close food storage bag.

  2. Combine the remaining ingredients; pour over the pork chops in the bag.

  3. Seal the bag and refrigerate overnight.

  4. Drain the liquids into a saucepan. Place the saucepan over high heat and bring to a full boil.

  5. Put the chops in the slow cooker; pour the hot liquids over them and cook for 5 to 7 hours, or until the chops are done. The minimum safe temperature for pork -- USDA guidelines -- is 145 F.

  6. The marinated pork chops are also great grilled or broiled. Bring the pineapple marinade to a full boil and use it to baste the chops.

  7. Serve pork chops with some fresh pineapple chunks and a garnish of chopped fresh cilantro, if desired.
