BBQ Pineapple Pork Chops with some Polynesian flair, that’s moist and tender. The key is all in the marinating. by using fresh pineapple’s enzymes to tenderize the pork. This is a quick and easy BBQ Pork that can be done in less then 20 minutes.
It’s all about the sauce, a hybrid of teriyaki sauce with tropical profile. The fresh pineapple is one of the key ingredients giving more tropical flavor profile. What makes this different is use of ketchup as supporting flavor profile. Still holding true to key components of teriyaki sauce with soy sauce, brown sugar, ginger, garlic and vinegar. A simple short cut would be to use western dressing with garlic and crushed pineapple which works very well. But I found that making your own sauce can tweak flavors and build more unique profile. Two simple tweaks to Polynesian Sauce was canola oil and crushed hot chili flakes. Adding these two additional ingredients really boosted flavors. Of course the amount of chili flakes and type of chilies flakes can be adjust to your likings. This sauce can be used as marinate and dipping or brushing sauce.
