Pan-Grilled Pork Chops with Pineapple Salsa

pork chops with pineapple salsa

Pork chops are one of the easiest and quickest week night dinner options, not to mention one of the most inexpensive meats on the market. I used to avoid eating pork, except for bacon (because I’m a bacon addict), just for the sheer fact that pigs will eat anything (and I mean anything) you feed them. However, I have come to terms with the fact that I love pork, and it can provide an inexpensive way to get more protein in your diet. And since I’m on a budget, pork was on my grocery list this week.

My best friend brought over some left-over pineapple chunks from a conference he attended over the weekend. And I don’t mean, just a few chunks but an entire “to-go box” full of pineapple. So I have a lot of pineapple to use up. Pork and and pineapples go together splendidly, and what better way to use up the extra bell peppers in my fridge than with a delicious medley of pineapple salsa?

For the pineapple salsa, I used what was left in my fridge of fresh vegetables – tomatoes, green and yellow bell peppers. If you have cilantro, feel free to use it.

For my side dish, I sautéed fresh broccolini using the pork fat in the pan I cooked the pork chops in. I sprinkled salt, pepper, and garlic salt on top,of the broccolini and stir fried it until cooked, about five minutes.

It was delicious and made a perfect compliment to the pork chops. [amd-zlrecipe-recipe:7]
