Grilled Hawaiian Pork Chops

This recipe is one of my absolute FAVORITES! It's so full of flavor and screams summer! My mom found this recipe in a tiny "grilling" cookbook YEARS ago. They are truly delicious! So here it is...

Hawaiian Pork Chops
2 packages of thin cut boneless pork chops
1/2 cup of soy sauce
1/4 cup of vegetable oil
1 clove of garlic (minced)
1 small onion, sliced thin
2 TBSP brown sugar
1 can of Pineapple slices in juice

What I do, and what my mom did was this:

Mix soy sauce, vegetable oil, a splash of the juice from the can of pineapple, garlic onion and brown sugar in a 9x13 Pyrex dish. Then simply trim the little bit of fat that may or may not be on the chops off, and toss them around in the dish to  coat them.

After that, I like to take the slices of pineapple and put them on top. That way some of the marinade gets on them which makes them so very delicious when you grill them!
At this point, it all smells so delicious
Then cover them up tightly with plastic wrap and stick them in the fridge for a good hour or two.
(the longer the better)

Once they have marinated and are basically the color or the marinade itself, throw them on the grill!

Don't mind my grill, it gets used A LOT! (photo bomb of the zucchini!)

Since they are thin, they do cook quickly. I do just a few minutes on each side until they are marked well by the grill. As soon as I flip them all over, I put the pineapple slices on the grill for about 2 minutes each side just to heat them a little. (I spoon on the juices from the marinade several times throughout the grilling process to add flavor) Once the chops are cooked and the pineapples are charred a little bit, place the pineapple on top of the chops, and pour some more juices on top to finish them off! These are so yummy I promise!

Don't mind the cheesy paper plate, I wasn't feeling dishes last night!

I made these a few nights ago! They were delicious as usual! I grilled some local zucchini that I tossed in olive oil and sprinkled with garlic pepper and made some brown rice. I've made these with corn on the cobb and pierogies. Or boiled red potatoes and asparagus. The possibilities are endless!! Just trust me on this recipe! It is insanely good!!
