Easy Sweet and Spicy Pork Chops

Updated on March 17, 2015

Caribbean Jerk Pork Chops...with Pineapple!

I was shocked and pleased when my mom called one night, all excited about a recipe she'd created. She was never known as a cook in the family. In fact, we usually stayed away when she offered to cook.

But as she began gushing about slicing bell peppers and onions, chopping pineapple, and combining the yummy fruit and veggies with pork chops and Caribbean jerk sauce, I had to admit, it sounded pretty good. I tried it a few days later, and it was very good. In fact, it turned out to be one of my favorite dishes, and best of all, it isn't difficult to make.

Score one for Mom.

Also has a tasty side dish...

The onions, peppers, and pineapple can be eaten as a side. Feel free to adjust all three amounts to your particular tastes. I love pineapples, so I always add a lot. The pineapple adds a sweetness to balance the spiciness of the marinade, and the tanginess of both blend the flavors well
