Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice.

Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Riesling are great choices for Pork Chops. Chardonnay suits simple chops or chops in a butter or cream sauce, dry riesling complements sweet additions like honey mustard or apples, and pinot noir is a safe bet for pork dishes in general. The Rochioli Estate Chardonnay with a 4.3 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 42 dollars per bottle.

Rochioli Estate Chardonnay

This wine is a fine example of the unique characteristics from the Rochioli property and the Russian River Valley. Aromas of ripe apple, tropical fruit, hazelnut and a touch of spice combine with the rich apple flavors and crisp acidity.

Instructions

In a gallon size Ziploc bag, combine pineapple juice, brown sugar, soy sauce, garlic powder, and pepper and smush the bag a few times to mix the marinade. Add the pork chops to the bag and zip the bag up removing excess air first. Turn a few times to coat the pork. Marinade for 2 hours or overnight if you prefer more flavor.

Preheat grill. Remove the marinated chops from the bag, shaking off excess marinade, and grill until browned or 5 to 8 minutes per side. The meat will be no longer pink inside and will have visible grill marks. Brush the chops with the marinade a few times while grilling and discard the excess. After the first 5-8 minutes, place the pineapple slices on the grill and allow to cook until hot.

Serve the pork chops topped with the pineapple rings.

Tips

Health Tips

  • When buying canned fruit, buy fruit packed in fruit juice and check the label to avoid added sugar. The fruit is sweet enough, it doesn't need any help!

  • If you're trying to cut back on sugar, consider replacing some of the sugar in this recipe with a sweetener like Stevia or Splenda. If you're against these kinds of sweeteners, start reducing the amount of real sugar you use until your tastebuds adjust.

Cooking Tips

  • Store brown sugar in an air-tight container to avoid hardening. If your brown sugar still gets too hard to use, you can use one of these techniques to soften it.

  • If a recipe doesn't specify whether you should use light brown sugar or dark brown sugar, just use whatever you have on hand or prefer. The difference is that dark brown sugar has more molasses and thus a stronger flavor.
