Servings 6 People
- 6 Smithfield All Natural Bone-In Pork Chops
- 1 pineapple peeled, cored, divided
- 3/4 cup soy sauce
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 tablespoon ginger fresh, grated
- 2 green onions thinly sliced
Cut the top and bottom away from the pineapple. Carefully slice away the outside and remove the core. Using a food processor, crush enough of the pineapple to make 1 cup.
Next, slice the remaining pineapple into rings and set aside.
In a large shallow dish, stir together the crushed pineapple, soy sauce, honey, oil, garlic, ginger, and chopped green onions until combined.Then place the bone-in pork chops into the marinade. Flip to coat all sides. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour. Preheat grill to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Shake excess marinade from the pork chops and place on the heated grill. Cook for 3 – 4 minutes on each side, rotating to create grill marks.During the second half of cooking, place the pineapple rings on the grill. Cook 2 minutes per side.
Finally, transfer the grilled pork chops and pineapple rings to a serving platter. Cover loosely with foil and let rest 5 minutes before serving.
Due to variations in grill type, grill temperature, and thickness of pork chops, cooking times will vary.
