Yield: 4 servings
1/4 cup pineapple juice
2 tablespoons ketchup
2 tablespoons soy sauce
4 bone-in pork chop (trimmed (1/2-inch thick) (1 3/4 to 2 pounds))
Kosher salt
freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
4 whole pineapple (fresh or canned)
1/4 cup rum (or pineapple juice)
cilantro (or parsley, for garnish)


Step 1

Stir together pineapple juice, Tiger Sauce, ketchup and soy sauce in a small bowl.

Step 2

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season pork chops with salt and pepper and add to skillet. Cook about 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Flip and cook 2 to 3 more minutes, or until lightly browned.

Step 3

Pour sauce over pork, cover and bring to a simmer. Cook for 10 minutes, then uncover and continue to cook another 5 minutes, or until pork is tender and sauce is thick.

Step 4

Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat and add butter and sugar. Cook 2 to 3 minutes or until caramelized. Add sliced pineapple and cook for 2 to 3 minutes per side. Add rum and cook until syrupy. Remove from heat and set aside.

Step 5

Transfer pork to a platter, arrange pineapple slices on top of pork, then top with any remaining sauce from both pans. Garnish with cilantro or parsley and serve.
