I can’t believe the last few days of summer are here. We’ll be celebrating the long weekend with family at the lake. This is a perfect quick and easy recipe for it — grilled pork chops and pineapple salsa. This recipe has just a few simple steps, and the actual cooking time is only about 15 minutes. More time for hanging out on the deck!
The game plan for this recipe is stress-free. Start with the quick marinade for the pork chops. Then go sit on the deck with a frosty drink. When it’s time to grill, put the pineapple on first. And make the pineapple salsa while the pork chops finish cooking. For juicy pork chops, follow these guidelines on cooking pork to 145 degrees. Easy and delicious — perfect for a holiday weekend.
