You’ll need:

  • 1/3 Cup of Reduced-Sodium Soy Sauce

  • 2 Cloves Minced Garlic
  • 6 Boneless Pork Chops {with fat trimmed}

pineapple memorial day pork recipe


Combine first 5 ingredients in a large bowl that has a lid. Add pork chops to the mixture. Allow to marinade in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. {I went to the fridge and gave the bowl a good shake every 30 minutes or so. I wanted to make sure they were getting coated on each side.}

When you’re ready to grill the pork chops, remove from marinade and cook at 225 degrees on a greased grill. {Tip: Spray each side of your pork chops with non-stick cooking spray, instead of spraying grill grates directly.} Cook pork chops for 6-7 minutes on each side, or until juices run clear. DO NOT overcook, the meat will become tough and dry.

For tender, juicy and flavorful chops, cook them like a steak! The National Pork Board recommends that you cook pork chops to an internal temperature between 145°F (medium rare) and 160°F (medium), followed by a three-minute rest, using a digital thermometer to ensure accuracy.
