Pineapple-Glazed Pork Chops with pineapple & mango relish
Pork and pineapple are a classic pairing. Brush the chops with a sweet pineapple glaze, then top them with a fresh pineapple and mango relish for a simple summer menu that's bursting with flavor.
FOR THE RELISH, COMBINE:
FOR THE GLAZE, HEAT:
Preheat grill to medium-high. Brush grill grate with oil.
For the relish, combine pineapple, mango, onion, cilantro, and jalapeño; season with salt and pepper.
For the glaze, heat pineapple juice, brown sugar, preserves, and Dijon in a saucepan over high to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until sugar dissolves and mixture thickens and is syrupy, about 5 minutes.
Grill chops, covered, 6 minutes; brush with glaze. Flip chops, glaze again, and grill until a thermometer inserted into the thickest part, but not touching bone, registers 145°, 6–8 minutes more. Transfer chops to a plate; tent with foil and let rest 3–4 minutes.
To serve, pour any meat drippings over chops, then top with pineapple & mango relish.
To help protect the chops from excessive charring, start glazing them halfway through grilling.
To get an accurate reading, be sure to temp the chops in the thickest part, without touching the bone.
For a milder relish, remove the seeds and ribs from the jalapeño, or if you want it spicier, leave them in.
