If you’re looking for a healthy pork chop recipe, this is it! We love making Pork Chops with Pineapple and Peppers. The sweet pineapple and the crunchy peppers blend beautifully with the perfectly grilled pork chops. For a fun and dramatic display, you could even stuff the mixture into the pineapple, what a presentation that would be!
This recipe requires no mixes, no concentrates or packages. You can even pick up most of the ingredients from your local farmers market, aside from the pineapple. When making this dish we cook it just enough so that the vegetables and fruit are still tender. Think of pasta and how it’s al-dente, we like our produce the same way.
You can use coconut aminos if you’re avoiding soy or you can swap that out and use soy instead. There’s no added sugar in this recipe at all, unless you really like your food sweet, then you could add a bit of brown sugar. By adding in the pineapple to the marinade and into the dish you’re definitely going to get that delicious sweet pineapple flavor without any added sweeteners.
Our motto at every meal is to enjoy as many colors as you can! Looking for a fried recipe to serve along with your Grilled Pork Chops with Pineapple and Peppers? Try our Broccoli Quinoa Fried Rice! Loaded with tons of protein and veggies too!
