I don't need an excuse to use the grill. I love being outside and watching my kids play in the sandbox, my husband slaving away at weed pulling (I keep telling him it is a lot easier to manage if you do it more often than once a month), and the smell of hot coals on mesquite wood. Pork however, pork scares me. It's something we never really ate in my house growing up but I feel compelled to try and find ways to sneak it onto my family's plate. We have had many failed attempts in our house to bring "the other white meat" onto the weekly rotation, but I have to say this dish was TASTY!! Imagine how good it would be on chicken! haha
- 4 bone in pork chops
- 1 (20 oz) can crushed pineapple
- 3 green onions (white parts only) thinly sliced
- 2 teaspoons ground ginger
- 3 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons sesame oil
- 1/4 cup light brown sugar
Mix pineapple, onions, ginger, soy sauce, sesame oil, and brown sugar and place in a large bowl. Add chops and cover bowl with plastic wrap. Marinade chops for 2-6 hours. Remove from marinade before cooking and discard leftover marinade.
Heat grill to med-high heat ( about 500F). Brush grates with oil and grill chops over direct heat about 10 mins, turning once, until internal temp reads 145F.
Remove from grill and enjoy!!
