Grill pork chops, uncovered, over medium heat or broil 4-5 in. from the heat for 4-5 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 145°. Let meat stand for 5 minutes before serving.
  3. Meanwhile, combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over both sides of pineapple rings. Grill for 1-2 minutes on each side or until browned. Serve with pork. Yield: 2 servings.

"Great! Makes enough marinade for more than two chops so it's easy to use this recipe when cooking for more than two."

"You can use the same amount of marinade for four pork chops. The chops were tender and juicy. I didn't bother to double the amount of pineapple as I knew my husband would not be interested in grilled pineapple, but my daughter and I loved it--my daughter ate the leftovers for lunch the following day."
