Sadly summer is gone but you can still get some fun flavor with these Pineapple Baked Pork Chops. They cook quickly and taste amazing with the pineapple slices on top! This is a must try if you are trying to liven up your dinner from the same ole pork chops! I will say though that if you can’t eat pineapple hot from the oven, then just leave the slices off while baking and add them once they are out of the oven.
1/3 cup orange juice
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
4 boneless pork chops
4 thick slices of pineapple
1) In a bowl, mix orange juice, soy sauce, vinegar, brown sugar, onion and garlic powder. Pour mix into a large sealable bag with the pork chops. Seal and coat throughly. Marinate for at least 2 hours, turning the bag to redistribute the marinade.
2)Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Transfer the pork chops to a baking dish. Top with pineapple slices and bake for 30 minutes till chops get to 145 degrees internally.
3) Let pork rest for a few minutes before serving.
