Tropical Pork Chops Recipe

Tropical Pork Chops Recipe

I WAS FORTUNATE to visit my grandmother's birthplace in Hawaii, where I met relatives who taught me how to make this dish. It's been a family favorite since I brought the recipe home. The pineapple is a sweet surprise. -Jeanette Babineau, Grand Junction, Colorado
