Ingredients

  • 4-5 Smithfield All Natural Bone- Pork Chops

Dry rub:

  • 1 tablespoon sweet paprika
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Pineapple relish:

  • 5 slices fresh pineapple
  • 1/2 red onion cut into thick slices
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1 teaspoon minced parsley or cilantro
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat grill. Meanwhile, prepare the dry rub by combining all ingredients in a small bowl. Sprinkle and pat the dry rub onto each side of the pork chops (you might not use all the dry rub). Grease the grill and grill the pork chops over medium heat for about 4 minutes per side, until you reach your desired level of doneness (see note regarding internal temperature).
  • While the pork is cooking, place the pineapple, red onion, and bell pepper on a greased portion of the grill. Cook over medium heat, rotating at least once, for a total of 5-8 minutes, until grill marks are present.
  • Remove the pork from the grill and tightly cover with foil. Chop the pineapple, onion, and bell pepper and combine with lime juice, parsley, salt, and pepper. Serve the pork chops with the pineapple relish spooned over the top.

Notes

If you love your pork medium rare, you should cook it to an internal temperature of 145 degrees (followed by a three-minute rest). If you like your chops a little more done, you can cook them to an internal temperature of 160 degrees.
