Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup (75 ml) ketchup
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) chopped chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) ground cumin
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3/4 tsp (4 ml) each salt and pepper
  • 4 boneless pork sirloin chops, about 2.5 cm thick and 175 g each
  • 4 pineapple rings
  • Chopped fresh coriander leaves
  • Lime wedges

Preparation

Whisk the ketchup with the brown sugar, chipotle peppers, Worcestershire sauce, cumin and garlic. Cook in the microwave, on high, for 2 minutes or until hot and bubbling. Sprinkle the salt and pepper over both sides of each pork chop. Brush some of the ketchup mixture all over the pork chops.

Select the "Sausage/Pork/Lamb" program and press "OK". Lightly grease the cooking plates with cooking spray. Once the purple indicator light has stopped flashing, place the pork chops on the grill and close the lid.

Cook until the indicator light has changed to the colour orange. Transfer the pork chops to a plate and tent with foil. Rest for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, brush some of the remaining ketchup mixture over the pineapple rings.

Select the "Manual Mode" program and press "OK". Lightly grease the cooking plates with cooking spray. Once the purple indicator light has stopped flashing, place the pineapple on the grill and close the lid.

Cook for 3 to 5 minutes or until well marked. Place the pineapple rings on the pork chops and brush with any remaining sauce. Sprinkle with coriander and serve with lime wedges on the side.

Tips: Chipotle peppers in adobo sauce can be found in the ethnic or Latin aisle of well-stocked grocers. Fresh or canned pineapple work equally well in this recipe.
