Pineapple-Glazed Pork Chops with Charred Scallions

  • TOTAL TIME: 30 MIN Plus 2 hr marinating
  • SERVINGS: 4

Pork with pineapple glaze seems like a pupu dish to have with a tiki cocktail. But F&W's Marcia Kiesel knows that when grilled, the pineapple juice takes on a caramelly flavor that's great with the slightly sweet oakiness of warm climate Chardonnay.

  1. 2 cups unsweetened pineapple juice
  2. 1 tablespoon finely grated fresh ginger, plus 2 tablespoons chopped ginger
  3. Four 6-ounce boneless pork loin chops
  4. 16 large scallions, trimmed
  5. Vegetable oil, for drizzling
  6. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  1. In a large, shallow dish, combine 1/2 cup of the pineapple juice and the grated ginger. Add the pork and turn to coat. Let stand at room temperature for 2 hours, turning often.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine the remaining 1 1/2 cups of pineapple juice with the chopped ginger and boil over high heat until reduced to 1/2 cup, about 20 minutes; strain the juice.
  3. Light a grill. Remove the pork from the marinade. Drizzle the pork and scallions with oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill the pork over high heat until nicely charred, about 3 minutes. Turn and grill for 2 minutes longer. Brush the chops with the reduced pineapple juice and grill, turning and brushing constantly, until richly glazed, about 1 minute. Transfer the pork to a platter. Grill the scallions, turning a few times, until wilted and charred in spots, about 2 minutes. Serve the pork chops with the scallions.

Suggested Pairing

Try a Chardonnay from Argentina.
