Pineapple Pork Chops

Pineapple Pork Chops

Serves 4.

Tasty and perfect summer recipe.  Get these chops marinating and then fire up the grill!
Inspired by: Pork

pork chops, 3/4-inch thick 
1 6-oz can pineapple juice, unsweetened (3/4 cup)
3 scallions, white parts sliced into thin rounds
3 tablespoons ginger, peeled and minced
3 tablespoons soy sauce, reduced-sodium
2 tablespoons Asian sesame oil, dark
2 tablespoons light brown sugar
3/4 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
4-8 slices pineapple

Mix pineapple juice, white parts of scallions, ginger, soy sauce, sesame oil, brown sugar, pepper and salt together in large bowl.  Remove a small amount to marinate pineapple slices with, and then add chops to the large bowl.  Cover both containers and refrigerate for 2 to 10 hours.

Prepare a medium-hot fire in grill. Brush grill grate clean and lightly oil grate. Remove chops from marinade, shaking off excess marinade. Do not pat dry. Discard remaining marinade. Grill chops directly over heat, turning once, until done.  Remove chops from grill, set aside, and then grill pineapple slices, quickly flipping after only a minute or two.
