Ingredients

Cooking spray

4 spray(s)

Pineapple

9 slice(s), (each ½ inch thick), divided

Hoisin sauce

3 Tbsp

Rice wine vinegar

1½ Tbsp

Low sodium soy sauce

½ Tbsp

Garlic clove

Instructions

  1. To make glaze, finely chop 1 pineapple slice. In a small bowl, combine chopped pineapple, hoisin, vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, and ginger. To make sauce, transfer 3 tbsp glaze to a cup and stir in 1 tbsp water.
  2. Preheat grill to medium-high. Coat pork, red peppers, scallions, and remaining pineapple slices with nonstick spray.
  3. Grill pork and peppers, turning once, for 5 minutes. Brush pork and peppers with about half of glaze. Cook, turning once and brushing with remaining glaze, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into chops registers 145°F for medium and peppers are lightly charred and tender, about 3 minutes. Transfer pork and peppers to a large platter.
  4. Grill pineapple and scallions, turning once, until lightly charred, about 3 minutes. Transfer to platter with pork and peppers.
  5. Slice pork, if desired. Divide pork, peppers, pineapple, and scallions among plates and drizzle with sauce.
