Oven-Baked Pineapple Pork Chops




Do you love Gooseberry Patch? I DO!!! Their cookbooks are
adorable and full of great options.

You can click on the logo and it will link you
right up with their web site. Lots of cute stuff!

You can also sign up for their monthly e-mail
and get free recipes. Cool. I got this one the other
day and thought I would give it a try.




Oven-Baked Pineapple Pork Chops

8-oz. can pineapple slices, drained and 4 T. juice reserved
2 T. soy sauce
1/2 t. ground ginger
1/2 t. garlic powder

4 pork loin chops
1/3 c. Italian-seasoned bread crumbs
1 t. paprika

Combine reserved pineapple juice, soy sauce, ginger and garlic powder in a shallow bowl; add pork chops, turning once to coat. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours. Gently toss bread crumbs and paprika in a pie plate; add pork chops, coating both sides. Arrange pork chops in an ungreased shallow 13"x9" baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Turn pork chops; place one pineapple slice on each pork chop. Bake 25 additional minutes. Makes 4 servings.


I baked mine in a cast iron skillet. Love the sizzle!


It was pretty tasty! I would recommend marinading for the full amount of time suggested. I didn't and wished I did.

Liz,

These look delish! I don't have many pork recipes (a zillion chicken) so I may try this. I love their catalog~the illustrations especially. The best deal I have gotten is on their throw quilts. I love them for the ends of beds for a little nap or thrown over a chair to look pretty. I'm always surprised to see how many bloggers know & love the "Patch"!!

xoxo

Love Gooseberry patch also. I have many of their cook books and love their special crafting books for the holidays and such. I bought them all used on Amazon for pennies and I look at them all the time. Love to look at their catalogs also, so many cute pictures to decoupage with. I lucked in and found the lightening bug jar they sell at Goodwill this year for only a couple of bucks, it is really cute and looks just like a jar of lightening bugs.

Oh Liz!! Your blog looks lovely, girl!! I have missed a lot!! Love your flowers and your pretty tablescape, and this meal is yummilicious!!

I have looked at those cookbooks, but don't own one. I get most of my new recipes from the internet. NEVER thought I'd be saying that!!
I do have to have a pic, though. If I can't see what it will look like, I usually won't make it.

Hope all is well with you, sweetie!
It's good to catch up!!

Have a glorious weekend!!
Hugs,
Becky
