What You’ll Need

  • 4 loin pork chops
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 (20-ounce) can pineapple chunks, drained with liquid reserved
  • 1/4 cups ketchup
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 3/4 cup frozen carrots, thawed
  • 1 green bell pepper, cut into chunks

What to Do


  1. Sprinkle pork chops evenly with salt and pepper.
  2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil until hot. Add chops and cook 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until browned. Remove chops to a plate; set aside.
  3. In the same skillet over medium-low heat, combine pineapple juice, ketchup, water, brown sugar, and vinegar; mix well. Stir in pineapple chunks, carrots, and bell pepper, and cook 6 to 8 minutes, or until vegetables are tender. Return pork chops to skillet and heat another 8 to 10 minutes, or until pork is no longer pink in center.




Serve this up with some cooked white rice.
