  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.

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!

I have never had pork chops this juicy before! It literally fell off the bone!

These were so tasty. My husband doesn't typically like pork chops like these. I had a whole pork loin that I cut into slices that I used, so I could make them as thin or thick as I wanted. I ...
