I have been in a real pork chop slump lately and I’m really tired of chicken so it was time to look in the pantry and see what I could create. I was able to come up with an easy and delicious Hawaiian Pork Chops recipe that I served over fluffy white rice.
I kept this recipe basic but you could easily chop up some red, yellow, and green bell peppers and toss them on the sheet pan to add more flavor and some veggies to this dish. You could also serve this with ramen or other noodles instead of rice, it’s that versatile.
This recipe is made with just a few pantry and freezer staples-boneless pork chops, barbecue sauce, canned pineapple rings, onion powder, and garlic powder. Chances are, you have everything you need on hand to make this recipe tonight! Just pull out your grill pan or cast iron skillet and get started.
This easy and versatile Hawaiian Pork Chops recipe makes a big punch with just a few pantry staples.
- 1.5 lbs boneless pork chops thin
- 20 oz pineapple rings reserve juice
- 28 oz barbecue sauce I use Sweet Baby Ray's
- 1/3 cup reserved pineapple juice
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 TBS olive oil-if using a frying pan not a grill pan
Preheat oven to 375° F.
Cover a sheet pan with aluminum foil and lightly spray with nonstick spray. set aside.
Preheat the grill pan, or cast iron frying pan over medium-high heat for 3-5 minutes. IF you are using a frying pan, pour in the olive oil, you will know the pan is hot when the oil becomes wavy.
In a bowl mix together the barbecue sauce, pineapple juice, garlic powder, and onion powder, set aside.
Grill the pork chops 1-2 minutes per side.
Place pork chops on prepared sheet pan. Place pineapple rings around the pork chops on the sheet pan.
pour the sauce over the pork chops and pineapple.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, until internal temperature reaches 145°F.
I told you is was super simple but the sauce makes it so flavorful! The sauce also tasted great on the rice. You can easily add this recipe to your weeknight meal plan because it only takes about 30 minutes from start to finish and you can cook up the rice or noodles while the pork is in the oven.I hope you enjoy this easy Hawaiian pork Chops recipe and all of the easy recipes I share here on The Mom Maven.
