I had a large stack of frequently used recipes that I pulled from magazines or copied by hand. I don’t know where they went but one of the recipes I wanted was for Hawaiian pork chops.
Unfortunately, I just couldn’t find the original recipe. The good news was that at least I remembered the ingredients. With that, I was able to find a similar recipe online to guide me in the right direction (mainly to make sure I wasn’t missing anything and to follow the correct cooking temperature/time).
I placed a pineapple ring on the bottom of the pork chop in addition to placing one on top of the brown sugar. I think next time I may put a little more ketchup and a little less sugar (I used one tablespoon of each on the chops).
What I like about this dish is that the preparation is very quick since you only need a handful of items. The most difficult part is just waiting for the pork chops to be done! We served this with some Israeli couscous cooked in vegetable broth.
Here is the original recipe: http://www.cooks.com/recipe/we0uf7hm/perkins-pork-chop-supreme.html
Sliced fresh onion
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Trim fat off chops (salt) optional. In baking dish or broiling pan place pork chops. On top of each put onion slice then 1 heaping tablespoon ketchup and sprinkle all with brown sugar. Top with canned pineapple ring.
Bake 45-60 minutes (depending on thickness of the chops) in 350 degree oven.
