Chili-Rubbed Pork Chops with Grilled Pineapple Salsa

I was recently in Atlanta for the BlogHer Food conference, and while I was there I was invited to tag along with the National Pork Board for a Pork Crawl through Atlanta. What’s a Pork Crawl? Well, basically a bunch of us food blogging girls took a limo ride around Atlanta, stopping to sample a ton of pork dishes from top chefs at 3 amazing restaurants: Dogwood, Pura Vida, and Rathbun. Here are some of the great girls I got to hang out with that evening…

You might be familiar with many of these ladies (they’re some of my favorite bloggers!):  Bakerella, Family Fresh Cooking, Picky Palate, Georgia Pellegrini, Steamy Kitchen and Kevin & Amanda

The Pork Board sent me some pork chops, along with a kit that included everything I needed to make this delicious recipe for Chili Rubbed Pork Chops with Grilled Pineapple Salsa.  I was pretty curious about the whole thing, since I pretty much kill every pork chop that I try to make.  They assured me this wouldn’t happen.  Turns out they have some JUICY new news to share with the world… the USDA has just recently confirmed that 145 degrees F as measured on a food thermometer, followed by a three-minute rest time, is safe internal temperature for pork chops, roasts and tenderloins. This cooking method promises to result in juicy, tender and flavorful pork. So I put it to the test with this recipe…


Here’s what you start with.  Simple.


Just mix up the spices and you’ve got the rub for your chops.


Rub those chops and let them sit…


… while you grill the fresh pineapple and jalapenos.  Once these have some nice grill marks on them, you’re going to chop them up and mix with a little bit of lime juice and salt to create a simple, grilled pineapple salsa.


Grill the chops on your stovetop grill (or outdoors, if you’re ready for that!)  I loved this indoor grill- the nonstick surface made it a snap to clean.


And there it is… the grilled pork chop topped with grilled pineapple salsa!


My family nearly applauded when they took their first bite.  The pork was tender as can be.  Finally… I didn’t kill the pork chops.  And that grilled pineapple salsa on top was pretty wonderful too.

The National Pork Board is giving one RecipeGirl reader a kit full of all of the things you need to make this recipe.  If you win, here’s what you’ll receive (a $200 value).

Chili- Rubbed Pork Chops w/ Grilled Pineapple Salsa

Yield: 4 servings

Prep Time: 15 min

Cook Time: 20 min

A terrific recipe sent along to me from the National Pork Board. Our family loved this recipe big time...

Ingredients:

CHOPS:
4 (3/4-inch thick) bone-in pork center loin chops, trimmed
1 Tablespoon chili powder
1 1/2 teaspoons packed light brown sugar
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
3/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

PINEAPPLE SALSA:
3 (1/2-inch-thick) crosswise slices fresh pineapple, trimmed
1 medium jalapeno, halved lengthwise- seeds and veins removed
1 Tablespoon fresh lime juice
salt, to taste

Directions:

1. In a shallow bowl, combine chili powder, brown sugar, garlic powder, onion powder and salt. Sprinkle both sides of the chops with the spice mixture. Let the chops sit at room temperature while you prepare the salsa.

2. Prepare a grill to medium-high hat and lightly oil the grate. Grill pineapple and jalapeno until lightly charred (2 to 3 minutes per side). Remove from the grill and dice pineapple and jalapeno. In a medium bowl, combine pineapple, jalapeno and lime juice. Season to taste with salt.

3. Grill pork until internal temperature reaches between 145 and 160 degrees F (4 to 5 minutes per side).

4. Serve chops with the grilled salsa on top.

    My favorite way to prepare pork chops is to pan fry – following America’s Test Kitchen Cookbook recipe. I use very little oil, brown on both sides, remove from heat and tent with foil for about 10 min. They are always tender and juicy. I use an instant read thermometer also.

    Favorite way to prepare pork is to sear an entire loin and add sliced fennel to caramelize in the pork juices. Finish off in the oven until pinkish and juicy! 145!!!

    Feel free to laugh, but I haven’t had pork in oh, 20 odd years now. My mother used to make it with shake-n-bake in the microwave and I haven’t touched it since. Just the other day my 9 year old asked why we never eat it, I told him the story and vowed to find an appetizing way to make it (and make me forget the rubber sand coated pork chops of my childhood). I do believe I just found the solution! Thank you!!!

    Barefeet In The Kitchen — June 6, 2011 @ 5:58 AM

    This recipe looks fantastic! Anything with pineapple pretty much calls my name. I usually just roast or bake pork until it is falling apart for pulled pork. I don’t even remember the last time I made pork chops.

    Pork shish-ka-bobs! Chunk pork and marinate in desired sauce (i love a sweet and spicy teriyaki) and skewer with peppers, onions, mushrooms, pineapples, and zuchinni.

    Served with a baked potato and salad. GREAT grilling food!

    Season pork chops to taste. Layer pork chops and 1 can whole cranberry sauce in slow cooker. Cook on high 4 hours or low 6-8 hours. If you use fresh sweet potatoes, add on top of slow cooker at start of cooking time. If you use canned sweet potatoes, add at last hour of cooking. Makes approx. 6 servings

    Stephanie — June 6, 2011 @ 9:38 PM

    Wow, this might be my new favorite way to cook pork!

    We usually pan cook our pork chops and add bbq sauce to the pan at the end and let it caramelize a little. If we’re feeling ambitious we grill some onions and serve them on top.

    We love pork here. The way I prepare it most is Shredded Pork on a Bun. I always do it in the crockpot and bag it for the freezer. I don’t add bbq sauce until serving time because I have been known to use it with tortillas, in stew or soup or Cuban sandwiches.

    My favorite way to eat pork would have to be fried pork chops — when I was younger, we prepared this meal as a family. My dad would prepare the meat, my mom would dip in the egg and I always had the task of breading them. It was a great way for us to spend time together, and who doesn’t like a nice breaded pork chop with some apple sauce on the side? Delicious!

    Sweet apple and onion stuffed pork chops and Curried chops with mango salsa

    Both of these were absolutely delicious! And I’m glad the pork people are finally on board with cooking pork to a lower temp. They are so juicy and tender. I CANNOT WAIT to try this pork recipe!

    On a day when it’s going to reach 100 degrees (in Minnesota!!!), the pineapple salsa on pork chops looks so refreshing! My favorite pork recipe is the “secret” recipe my husband’s aunt makes when she prepares a pork roast. She’s from Italy and the way she seasons it is just FABULOUS.

  180. 180

    Jenny K — June 7, 2011 @ 9:15 AM

    That looks delicious! My favorite way to prepare pork is to brush with a little dijon mustard, coat with breadcrumbs, and bake. It’s so juicy and delicious, and does not taste strongly of mustard. Even my kids like it, so you know it can’t be too mustardy.
    I also love slow cooked shredded bbq pork. Mmmm. I’m getting hungry!

    This is going to sound silly, but taking plain old pork chops, rubbing them up with a little Lowry’s Seasoning Salt, and grilling them over an open fire is my favorite. It may not be the most stunning recipe, but it always means the first camping trip of the summer and it’s got all those kinds of great memories attached.

    I love buying a plain pork tenderloin and then putting teriyaki sauce on it. I also like experimenting with different spices to make rubs for thin boneless pork chops.

    Lana — June 8, 2011 @ 3:41 PM

    Pork chops were my least favorite cut, until I started undercooking them. I am so happy that USDA has finally seen the light:)
    But my favorite cut is pork shoulder, slowly roasted until tender, the skin crunchy and salty. So versatile, and very economical.
    Your recipe looks great – live the salsa!

    I like to rub a pork tenderloin with olive oil, then season it with salt&pepper and lots of minced garlic. Let it sit about an hour to equalize temp. Then sear for 2-3 min on each side and grill until 145F in middle. Rest 10-15min then slice and serve with a spicy plum & serrano chutney! @alanecooke

    If you specified chops I’d say grilled with a dry rub. Since you just said “pork” I’d have to go with pork shoulder, dry rub, wet mop, smoked for about 12-14 hours at 200 degrees. Or cedar planked carnitas nachos. (making myself hungry)

    I love a pork roast slow in my crock pot with potatoes and onions. Just simple seasonings of salt, pepper and maybe some garlic. Ok, usually garlic. For pork chops I like em either stuffed with a cornbread stuffing or with a homemade “shake and bake” style topping.

    This recipe was off the hooook! I added a few extras to my salsa like red onion and tomatoes… and the store was out of jalapeno so I subbed a pablano pepper, which gave it a little kick! At the end of the meal my husband and our friend were debating how much they would pay for that meal in a restaurant… I think that means they liked it ;)

    We have been using this recipe for the last few years and fix it several times every summer. We LOVE IT! Now that I know you had success doing it on the stove in a grill pan, I can serve it several times in the winter as well!! Tonight I am serving it with cilantro lime rice with black beans.
