Pineapple Pork Chops

A Top 25 Dinner Recipe

From the author:

"This is a huge hit in my house, with my 6-year-old son and 3-year-old twin daughters requesting it often. I serve the pork on top of brown or white rice, usually with green beans. The juice and pineapple bits from the pan taste great on the rice."

A sweet take on pork chops that is quick and easy to prepare. Pork chops get baked with a glaze of soy sauce, ginger, pineapple and brown sugar. For thicker sauce, drain more of the pineapple juice before combining with other ingredients. You can also put the pork under the broiler briefly to make it crispier.
