Flavor Surpassing Beauty

Some dishes are so quick to prep and cook that I want to put them on my Wednesday Weeknight Dinner series, but the inactive time pushes the overall time to one where it would be difficult to have on a weeknight……unless you prep ahead of time.

This pork chop is so flavorful and tender, in part to the marinade.


I actually worked ahead and marinated the chops before I took this picture.


I love this salsa. It fits for this dish and so many others.


A beautiful dish whose flavor surpasses its beauty!

Marinated Pork Chop with Pineapple Salsa

Prep Time: 3 hr 30 min | Cook Time: 20 min | Servings: 4 servings | Difficulty: Easy


1/4 teaspoon lime zest
2 limes, juiced
1 tablespoon honey
1 small shallot, chopped
1 jalapeno, chopped and seeds removed
1 garlic clove, chopped
1/2 cup olive oil
Pineapple Salsa:
1/2 pineapple, diced and cored, juices reserved
1 tomato, diced
1/2 red onion, minced
1/2 small jalapeno, diced
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro leaves
1 lime, juiced
Salt and pepper
4 bone-in, center-cut pork chops


For the marinade:

Blend all the ingredients in a large bowl. Place in a resealable plastic bag and add the pork chops. Marinate in the refrigerator for up to 3 hours.

For the salsa:

Mix all the salsa ingredients in a medium bowl. Taste for seasoning. Set aside for 10 minutes for flavors to meld.

Preheat grill to medium heat.

Remove chops from marinade. Grill for 5 minutes per side for a medium rare and 8 minutes for medium. Remove chops from grill and let rest 10 minutes before slicing. Spoon the salsa on top.
