Pineapple goes with fresh pork as well as it does with ham. The pineapple sauce is a quick and easy pan gravy. Some boneless pork loin chops can be a bit tough to the bite. Simply place between sheets of plastic wrap and lightly pound with the flat side of a meat mallet to tenderize. Re-shape and proceed with the recipe. And remember, pork can be cooked and served medium doneness (145 degrees). You can have this on the table in less than 30 minutes.

What You'll Need

How to Make It

Sprinkle pork loin steaks on both sides with kosher salt and ground chipotle chile pepper.

Heat a heavy deep skillet over medium-high heat. Coat bottom of the pan with olive oil. Sear pork loin chops until browned on both sides, turning only once. Remove to a platter and keep warm.

Lower heat to medium and melt the butter in the pan drippings. Add the sweet onion and saute until golden, stirring often.

Add the garlic and cook 1 additional minute. Carefully pour in the wine and deglaze the pan, scraping up any browned bits. Simmer until the wine is reduced by half, then add the chicken broth, pineapple, and cinnamon. Cook, stirring often until most of the liquid has evaporated and sauce is thick. Taste and adjust seasonings.

Return pork loin chops to the pan, turning to coat with the sauce, and cook until chops are heated through. Do not overcook or the pork will become dry and tough. Serve the pork loin steaks with the pineapple sauce.
