Pork chops with Grilled Pineapple Salsa
- 2 boneless pork chops
- 2 TBSP & 2 tsp lime juice, divided (1 lime worked for me)
- 4 pineapple rings, sliced 1/2 inch thick
- 1/2 red onion, sliced into thick pieces
- 1 TBSP jalapeno, chopped (If you don't like it spicy, remove the seeds!)
- 2-3 TBSP cilantro, chopped
- 1/8 tsp salt
Cover pork chops with 2 TBSP lime juice and set aside for about 10 minutes.
Heat grill pan/griddle on medium heat, spray with non-stick cooking spray and cook pineapple and onions for 4 minutes on each side. As you can see, I sliced my onions too small, but it doesn't really matter.
Chop pineapple and onion into small pieces and place jalapeno, salt and remaining 2 tsp lime juice in a medium bowl. Add the cilantro right before you serve so it doesn't get wilted from the warm pineapple and onion.
Spray grill pan with non-stick cooking spray (I had 2 sides with my griddle, so I could cook the chops and other goodies at the same time). Season pork chops with salt and pepper and cook over medium heat for 4-6 minutes on each side (depending on how thick your pork chops are). Try only to flip once- it really seals in the juices!
Top pork chops with salsa and eat up! I served mine with homemade garlic mashed potatoes.
And the bf enjoyed his with a frosty mug of Stella. Aren't these mugs great? I found them at the dollar store! Shh... :)
Have a great week!
