5 ingredient pineapple pork chops recipe, an easy 5 ingredient pork chop dinner recipePork chops are so great for a quick cooking meal, but for some reason I had always passed them up while grocery shopping. Not anymore. Not after making this delicious pineapple pork chops recipe. It’s SO good, so flavorful, and perfect for a quick dinner, and it’s this weeks’ Five Ingredient Friday recipe.


https://www.sweetphi.com/five-ingredient-fridays/For this recipe all you do in marinate pork chops in soy sauce and red pepper flakes, and then cook it with pineapple and cilantro. It’s fresh and soooo good. One of the first times I made this recipe I put the pork chops in the marinade and put it in the fridge. Life got crazy busy and I only was able to make it two days later. So the pork had been marinating in soy sauce and red pepper flakes for 2 days. The pork was darker in color because of the soy sauce, and when I made it, holy cow was it full of flavor (and heat from the red pepper flakes was great and intensified lol).

Pineapple pork chopsSo I’ve made this with both a quick marinade or an overnight one, and it’s great both ways. These pineapple pork chops serve really well over rice.

    Awesome dish! We like the fact that you used these specific pork chops for this recipe, which don’t have a lot of fat and it would pair great with the pineapple. For us here in Greece, this would be “Chinese” food with the soy and the rice LOL:) Our favorite pork cut is the neck, with its steaks having a lot of marbling which helps to keep the meat juicy while grilling, but it would work with this recipe (too fatty).
    Thank you for the amazing recipe dear!
    Sending you lots of hugs!

      That’s so interesting about the different cuts of pork that are used. I’ve only had pork steaks once in my life and they were delicious – I’ll now be on the lookout for them more!
      Thank you for your comment 🙂
