Teriyaki Pineapple & Pork Chops

Pork chops are wonderful on the grill. Adding the pineapple and teriyaki makes it even better! It reminds me of Hawaii!—Alaina Showalter, Clover, South Carolina

    This was very easy and delicious. My husband and two daughters all liked it. Wasn't sure about the grilled pineapple, but it was very good. Just enough flavor from the rosemary and other spices. Will definitely make again.

    I'm usually not a fan of teriyaki pork chops, but this recipe is really good. We served this to some guests for Sunday lunch and they all enjoyed this recipe. I did substitute basil for rosemary and it was good.

    Great flavour for the pork chops, grilled pineapple on the side was a perfect pairing.
