If you love experimenting with herbs you will love my super easy, grilled pineapple sage pork chops!
Every year for our birthday's my mom and I buy each other plants. Our birthday's are 3 days apart in June, which makes it fun because we always plan a trip to our favorite nursery and spend a good 3 hours walking the property visiting all the greenhouses.
Mom usually picks out landscape plants and I pick out veggie garden items. This year she bought me herbs for my on going herb garden. I was really excited by the pineapple sage herb plant. When you rub it between your fingers you get the delightful sent of pineapple mingled with sage.
Since I love to grill in the summer time I decided to make grilled pork chops and try out my pineapple sage. Although the pineapple taste was faint, the sage shined through and was perfect for the pork.
If you're looking to try something new, check out the recipe for my grilled pork chops. Soooo delicious!
Step 1: I used boneless pork chops, seasoned with a little bit of garlic and onion powder along with salt and pepper. I thin sliced some of the pineapple sage and added that to the pork and grilled it.
Step 2: Flip and grill on the other side until done. I usually cook mine to an internal temp of 150-155 and then I let it rest on a plate for a few minutes prior to serving. If you like it well done cook it to 160 degrees but be careful because the thinner it is, the easier it is to over cook it. You want a nice juicy pork chop rather than a dry, tough pork chop.
Step 3: Garnish with more freshly chopped pineapple sage and serve! Enjoy!
