This recipe is one of the first I pinned to my Recipes to Try board on Pinterest and I finally took the time to try it.  I am so glad I did because the taste is really outstanding.  I usually don’t marinate meats that much, but the pineapple juice and soy sauce really give the chops loads of extra flavor and helps to keep them moist.  The grilled pineapple slices weren’t too shabby either.  This recipe is from Allrecipes.com which is one of my go-to sites when I am looking for something new.

Grilled Pineapple Pork Chops

3 bone-in pork chops

8 oz. can pineapple rings

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup soy sauce

1/4 tsp. garlic powder

pinch of ground black pepper


Drain the pineapple rings, catching the juice into a bowl.  Keep the pineapple itself for later.  Combine the reserved juice, brown sugar, soy sauce, garlic powder and black pepper in a zip top bag.  Knead the bag with your hands a few times to mix the ingredients completely.  Add the chops and shake to coat.  Refrigerate for several hours.


Oil the grates of your grill and heat to medium.  Removed the chops from the marinade and shake off the excess.  Grill until the chops are cooked thoroughly and have nice grill marks on both sides, about 5 to 7 minutes on each side.  Test with a meat thermometer to make sure they are done.  Brush on a little of the marinade while the chops are cooking and discard the remainder.  Put the pineapple slices on the grill and cook until they are hot and show grill marks as well.  Serve on the side with the pork chops.

Since I am severely allergic to poultry and C is not a big seafood lover, I like to search for new ways to cook beef or pork.  I found this recipe, of course, on Pinterest.  (Yes, I am addicted, but at least I am making the things I pin. That makes it all right, doesn’t it?  Doesn’t it???)  This recipe is from Allrecipes.com and I have used that site so many times. 

This tenderloin turned out so tender and juicy with just a hint of sweetness from the apple juice.  Yum!  Even the leftovers were delicious.

2 tsp. Tuscan Sunset seasoning from Penzey’s Spices

1 teaspoon pepper

1 (3 pound) boneless pork loin roast

1 tablespoon canola oil

1 cup chopped onion

1 tsp. dried minced garlic

1 large apple – peeled, cored and chopped

1/2 cup frozen unsweetened apple juice concentrate, thawed

1/2 teaspoon salt


Rub the seasoning and pepper all over the tenderloin. 


In a Dutch oven over medium heat, brown the meat on all sides in the oil then remove and keep warm.

In the same pan, sauté the onion and garlic until tender. Add the apple, apple juice concentrate and salt, then bring to a boil. Return meat to the pan. Cover and bake at 325 degrees F for 55-75 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 160 degrees F, basting occasionally with juices.Remove to a serving platter and keep warm.
