Caramelised onion & pineapple pork chops


  • Marinade - 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar and 1/3 cup crushed fresh pineapple chunks (fresh pineapple juice is what you’re going for here)
  • 1/2kg pork chops - buy online or in-store
  • 1/2 yellow onion, minced (or finely chopped)
  • 1 cup fresh pineapple, minced
  • 1 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2+ garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil


Step 1

Note: Marinate the pork chop for at least a few hours before cooking.

Saute the onions and 1/2 cup pineapple in the balsamic vinegar, garlic and coconut oil in a skillet over medium heat for about 10-15 minutes, or until the onions are translucent. Once done, remove from skillet.

Step 2

Cook the pork chops with 1/2 cup pineapple, crushed and 1 tbsp coconut oil in the skillet over medium heat for about 5-10 minutes, or until the juice of the pork chops run clear and there is no pink in the middle.

Step 3

Top the cooked pork chops with the caramelized pineapple and onions you set off to the side. Serve and enjoy!
