  1. Combine 2 tablespoons olive oil, water, pineapple juice, red wine vinegar, muscovado sugar, onion flakes, 1/4 teaspoon salt, garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, cumin, paprika, coriander, and ginger in a bowl. Add pork chops; flip to coat completely. Marinate pork chops in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  2. Make zucchini ribbons by passing a vegetable peeler lengthwise over the side of each zucchini. When you approach seeds, turn zucchini and begin slicing another side.
  3. Heat butter in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir garlic until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add zucchini ribbons and season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; cook and stir just until ribbons are tender, 2 to 3 minutes.
  4. Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat and brush with 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil. Cook pork chops until browned and cooked through, about 3 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C). Serve pork chops alongside zucchini ribbons.

Made as written except I left out the pineapple juice (didn't want to buy it just for 2 tablespoons) and this turned out good. It was fast and simple for and easy weeknight meal.
