More About This Recipe

  • Grill, grill, grill. It's summmmaaaaaah! And the grill is poppin'. Wait, poppin' isn't right. It's smoking? Like, smoking hot? Smoking busy? It's hoppin'? Like you know when a place is super busy you say, it's hoppin'? Whatever. It's summer and you need to grill. So this is what I have for you - Piña Colada Grilled Pork Chops. And don't worry, the booze burns off while you're grilling. Alright, this is so super easy. Grab some coconut milk, dark rum and pineapple juice. I just bought a can of pineapples and used the juice. And I snacked on the pineapple while making the glaze. Boom. Just whisk a few tablespoons each of the stuff and simmer it for a few minutes. Then you just grill and baste! Get the chops good and seared, then baste them with the glaze for a few more minutes. So easy. And that's it! I baked a couple of sweet potatoes and grilled some squash to go along side, but you're more than welcome to eat anything you want.
