I found a pork recipe in a newspaper many years ago, but I lightened it up quite a bit. This version is so tasty that I use it for weekend company as well as weeknight dinners. -Linda Austin of Fayetteville, Arkansas


  • 1 cup unsweetened pineapple juice
  • 2/3 cup dry white wine or chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 4 bone-in center-cut pork loin chops (3/4 inch thick and 7 ounces each)


  1. In a large bowl, combine the first five ingredients; stir until sugar is dissolved. Pour 1-1/2 cups into a large resealable plastic bag; add pork chops. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade for basting.
  2. Drain and discard marinade. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack. Grill pork, covered, over medium heat or broil 4-5 in. from the heat for 4-5 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 145°, basting frequently with reserved marinade. Let meat stand for 5 minutes before serving.
