  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Combine chipotle powder, garlic powder, cinnamon, and onion powder in a small bowl.
  2. Pat pineapple rings dry.
  3. Heat 1 teaspoon olive oil in a large, nonstick saucepan over medium-high heat. Add pineapple rings and red onion; sprinkle with 3 tablespoons reserved pineapple juice and brown sugar. Cook until pineapple is lightly browned, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer pineapple-onion mixture to a plate.
  4. Pat pork chops dry and lightly season both sides with salt and pepper.
  5. Heat remaining 2 teaspoons oil in the same saucepan over medium-high heat; swirl to coat pan. Add chops; cook until bottom is browned, about 3 minutes. Flip and sprinkle the chipotle mixture on top. Cook until other side is browned, about 3 minutes. Continue flipping and cooking until no longer pink in the center, 3 to 5 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).
  6. Transfer chops onto a plate and top with the pineapple-onion mixture. Sprinkle goat cheese on top.

We really enjoyed this recipe! I added a little more pineapple juice because we love it!

Fantastic! The flavours in this recipe are not ones I would normally put together... but they work wonderfully! Thank you for sharing this recipe!

Very interesting combination of flavors! I'm not sure the goat cheese is what it needed; maybe feta would have been better. It all came together easy enough and looked pretty on the plate. Hu...

I made this for my wife and I and loved it. I only made two chops so I halved the seasoning for the meat but made 4 pineapple rings and half a red onion. We both loved it. Simple and delicious.

I switched apples for pineapple and left off the cheese!

Made as directed except left out the chile powder as we do not eat spicy foods. It was delicious! Next time I will only use half an onion though.
