Tropical Pork Chops

I noticed a trend in chicken dishes, so I decided to change things up this week and feature some hog!  There will be bacon dishes later I'm sure, but for now you can have this mouth-watering meat.  Great for an easy dish over rice!

1/3 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons prepared mustard
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoons soy sauce
1/8 teaspoon garlic salt
1/8 teaspoon onion salt
3-4 boneless pork chops
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup chopped onion
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/3 cup pineapple juice
1/4 cup pineapple tidbits

1. In a small pot, combine ketchup, mustard, brown sugar, vinegar, soy sauce, garlic salt, and onion salt.  Simmer on medium until the sugar is dissolved, about 10 minutes.  Set aside.
2. Season pork chops with salt and pepper, place in a skillet with the onions, garlic, and oil.  Brown the chops. Add water and the sauce, cook over medium-low heat for 25 minutes.
3. Stir in pineapple tidbits and simmer another 5 minutes on medium-low.

I served with:
Jasmine Brown Rice

Jess' Grade: A

Easy to make, great tangy sauce, soft juicy pork chops!  What more could you ask for in a dinner?  The sauce is great over the rice and the cook time is normal for a dinner of this calibur.  Enjoy!
