Hawaiian Style Grilled Pork Chops
- 20 ounces canned pineapple, slices, undrained
- 6 pork chops, 1 inch thick
- 1/2 cup soy sauce
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil
- 1/4 cup onion, minced
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- Drain the pineapple, reserving 1/4 cup of the juice. Place the chops in a large shallow dish. Combine the reserved pineapple juice, the soy sauce, oil, onion, garlic and sugar. Mix well. Pour the mixture over the pork chops. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours. Remove the chops, reserving the marinade.
- Grill over medium coals for 40-45 minutes, turning frequently and basting with the marinade. Place a pineapple ring on each chop during the last few minutes of cooking time.
- Use fresh pineapple if you prefer. The taste of fresh grilled pineapple is really magnificent. If using fresh, replace the canned juice with either canned pineapple juice or orange juice.
Omit the sugar in the marinade for a more suitable diabetic recipe.
