Hawaiian Pork Chops
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
- 3 teaspoons canola oil, divided
- 4 boneless pork loin chops (3/4 inch thick and 4 ounces each)
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1/3 cup chopped green pepper
- 1/3 cup thinly sliced onion

- 1/4 cup ketchup
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon cider vinegar

- In the same skillet, saute green pepper and onion in remaining 1 teaspoon oil until almost tender, 2 minutes. Stir in broth, pineapple, ketchup, brown sugar and vinegar. Bring to a boil. Return pork to the pan. Reduce heat; cover and simmer until a thermometer inserted in pork reads 145°, 5-7 minutes. Remove and keep warm.

Very easy and very good! I didn't have any green peppers, but I had everything else on the ingredients list, so I thought I would try this last night for a change in our normal pork chop meal. I used a bit more onion than what it calls for, and I used crushed pineapple instead of chunks because it was what I had in the cupboard. Very flavorful! I will definitely be making this again!

I thought this was bland and tasteless, which surprised me. I won't even finish my plate. It is easy, but I won't fix it again.

This is very good but I did make some modifications. I substituted fresh cut up pinnapple and also added some garlic, fresh seedless jalapeno peper and a sprinkle of crushed red pepper to balance the sweetness of the original recipe and to add depth.
