I like to dress up pork chops with pineapple, peach or apricot preserves. Whenever I do, I always serve mashed sweet potatoes on the side. Pineapple pork chops and sweet potatoes make a perfect pair. —Jane McMillan, Dania Beach, Florida

Pineapple Pork Chops Tips

What else can you add to pineapple pork chops?

Fresh herbs make a fantastic addition to this pork chop recipe. Try adding a sprig of rosemary or thyme to the pan when simmering the preserves, or garnish the finished dish with chopped basil or sage. You could also add canned or fresh pineapple to the preserves to add some fresh flavor. We love using pineapple preserves as the base for the sauce because this product is already reduced and sweetened (similar to jelly or jam), so it creates an easy glaze.

What do you serve with pineapple pork chops?

These pineapple pork chop have a bit of an island vibe, so embrace the tropical flavors and serve it with air-fryer plantains, coconut rice and Caribbean coleslaw. Most roasted or grilled vegetables pair well with pineapple pork chops, too, as does a simple green salad.

How long will pineapple pork chops last?

Pineapple pork chops last 3 to 4 days when stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator. You can also wrap the pork chops and sauce in a foil packet, which makes them easier to reheat. Reheat pineapple pork chops in a 350° oven for 10 to 15 minutes, until heated through.
