These are a delightful and quick meal for the grill. I usually serve with a baked potato, but my daughter loves them with wild rice.

Ingredients

  • 1 (8 ounce) can pineapple rings, juice drained and reserved

  • ¼ cup brown sugar

  • ¼ cup soy sauce

  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder

  • 4 pork chops

  • 1 pinch ground black pepper

Directions

  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. Place the pork chops into the marinade, squeeze out any air in the bag, seal it, and refrigerate overnight. Reserve the pineapple rings.

  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat, and lightly oil the grate.

  3. 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.
