Great Grilled Pork Chops with Pineapple Salsa Marinade

  • ¼ Cup Soy Sauce
  • ¼ Cup Red-Wine Vinegar
  • ¼ Cup Pure Maple Syrup
  • 1 TBSP peeled and finely minced fresh Ginger
  • 1 TBSP Asian sesame oil
  • 4 center-cut pork chops, cut ¾" to 1" thick

Combine the marinade in ingredients in a bowl. Coat the chops well and marinate, refrigerate for a minimum of 6 hours. Remove the chops from the marinade, scrapping off any ginger. Grill the chops over high heat for approx. 7 minutes per side, basting often with the marinade. Serve topped with Pineapple Salsa.

Pineapple Salsa

  • ¼ Cup Balsamic Vinegar
  • ¼ Cup Pure Maple Syrup
  • 1 TBSP Asian Sesame Oil
  • 1 ripe pineapple, trimmed, peeled and cored

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl except pineapple. Set aside. Halve the pineapple lengthwise. Slice the halves crosswise ½" thick, then cut each slice into 1" pieces so that you end up with little triangles of pineapple. Toss the pineapple in the marinade and let rest for 20 minutes, stirring once or twice. Thread the pineapple pieces onto eight 12" skewers, spacing them approx. ½" apart. Preheat the grill to medium. Grill the pineapple until glistening and golden. Turn only once. Remove the pineapple from the skewers and serve atop of pork chops.

Place side down in a baking dish and bake for about 40-50 minutes or until the squash is easily pierced with a fork. Turn and make indentations with a fork. Across the cut side of the squash, spread with the butter, drizzle with Pure Maple Syrup and return to the oven for 3-4 minutes. Serve hot.
