Remember how in one of my previous posts I asked you to share your fresh, healthy pork pics for a chance to win some cool stuff from FARMER JOHN®? Well I couldn’t just sit back and not join in the fun. Don’t worry, I’m not eligible for the prize. I’m just having fun here.
The details about the giveaway are posted again at the bottom of this post in case you missed it before. To get started, I picked up my FARMER JOHN® Boneless Pork Chops. They’re beautiful aren’t they? Nice & thick. This recipe is very easy to make: 4 pork chops, 4 pineapple slices & the homemade sauce. I used a fresh pineapple but if you use pineapple out of the can…that’s okay too. You can easily double or triple this recipe for a larger crowd.
The size of the casserole dish you use will depend on the size and quantity of your chops. My 4 pork chops were approximately 4 ounces each so I used a 9×13. It’s okay if your chops need to overlap a bit to fit.
The teriyaki sauce is homemade. I try to make all my own sauces & marinades versus store-bought. Most times it is actually cheaper AND the most important part is you control what goes in it. Meaning no added preservatives! Yuck. This sauce only contains a few simple ingredients that I bet you already have in your pantry.
Now just let it bake. I haven’t tried to convert this recipe for the slow cooker yet. I have however grilled it. If you want to go that route, below are the grilling instructions. I’ll share this with you as a bonus. Same ingredients, slightly different instructions: In a small bowl whisk together sauce ingredients. Place pork chops in a large resealable bag and cover with the sauce. Refrigerate 4 hours to overnight, turning the bag halfway through. Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Lightly coat grill with nonstick cooking spray. Grill pork chops until the internal temperature of the chops has reached 145 degrees F (63 degrees C). Add pineapple slices to grill and cook for 1-2 minutes on each side. Top pork chops with pineapple slice prior to serving.
