This recipe for Pineapple Pork from Simple by Jean-François Mallet (no recipe has more than six ingredients) delivers great flavor with just soy sauce, pineapple and fresh cilantro. Pork chops are pan-fried and then finished in a bath of soy sauce, chunks of pineapple and sprinkled with freshly snipped coriander.
Heat the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the pork chops for 15 minutes. Cut the pineapple rings into pieces and add them to the skillet with the pineapple juice and soy sauce.
Cook over low heat, basting the pork chop regularly with the pan juices, for 10 minutes, until lightly golden. Arrange the pork chops on a plate, top with the pan sauce, and snip the cilantro over the top with scissors.
