Ingredients: (Serves 5-6 – cut in half for meals for 2)
1/3 cup soy sauce (or tamari for gluten free)
3 garlic cloves, minced or thinly sliced
3 tbs rice wine vinegar
3 tbs water
3 tbs honey
2 lbs boneless pork chops
15 oz can of pineapple slices (can also use fresh)
Preheat oven to 400. In a small bowl, whisk soy sauce, garlic, rice vinegar, water, and honey. Spray baking dish with cooking spray. Lay pork chops in baking dish, and place pineapple slices over top of chops. Pour sauce over the top of pork and pineapple. Bake about 20 mins, depending on thickness of chops (internal temp of 145 degrees).
Too hot to use the oven? Marinate the pork chops in the sauce for 30 minutes, turn the grill to medium heat, and cook pork chops until reaching the internal temp of 145. As chops are cooking, lightly coat the pineapple slices with oil and put on grill (you’ll get some nice grill marks on them!)
Serving Suggestions: perfect with mashed potatoes or rice to soak up extra sauce and a simple green veggie or salad.
