Servings: 4 Prep 15 mins Marinate 1 hr Grill 8 mins


  • 4 center-cut boneless pork chops, cut about 1-1/2 inches thick (about 5 ounces each)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
  • 2 tablespoons pineapple juice
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

Make It

1. Place chops between 2 sheets of waxed paper. With meat mallet, rolling pin or the flat bottom of a heavy skillet, flatten the chops slightly. Season on both sides with salt and pepper.

2. Whisk together the barbecue sauce, pineapple juice, soy sauce and oil in a 9-inch glass pie plate. Add the meat, turning to coat with the marinade. Cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate for 1 hour, turning pork over after 30 minutes.

3. Prepare outdoor grill with medium-hot coals or heat the broiler.

4. Remove the chops from the marinade. Transfer the marinade to a small saucepan. Boil the marinade for 1 minute. Remove the saucepan from the heat; swirl in the butter until just incorporated, but not fully melted. Reserve the sauce.

5. Grill or broil pork chops for about 8 minutes, turning the chops over once. Transfer the meat to a platter. Spoon the sauce over the chops. Sprinkle with the chopped parsley. Serve immediately. Makes 4 servings.
