How to Store Leftovers

If you happen to have leftovers, place them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. You can reheat in a skillet on the stovetop or in the microwave until pork chops are warm throughout.

Tips for Making the Best Grilled Pork Chops

  • Pork Chops can be marinated in the fridge for 10-15 minutes, but for best results marinate for an hour or even overnight.
  • I recommend using low sodium soy sauce to reduce the salt content in the recipe.
  • Be sure to rest pork chops for at least 5 minutes with a piece of aluminum foil over meat. This will allow the meat to retain the juices.

FAQ’s For Hawaiian Grilled Pork Chops

What pork chops are best?

You can use boneless or bone in pork chops. They both work well and taste delicious.

Can I freeze these pork chops?

Yes, you can freeze these pork chops. Simply place meat in the marinade and place them in the freezer. When you are ready to cook, remove from the freezer, allow to thaw, and grill as directed below. I do not recommend freezing the pineapple slices.

Can these be made on the stovetop?

These can also be made on the stove top in a grill pan if you don’t want to use a grill to prepare them.

All the steps are the same, we pull the pork chops out of the skillet, cover and let them rest while we grill the pineapple in the same skillet.
