In Which the Pork Chops were Perfect (Well, Almost)…

Pork has always been one of my favorite meats and a proper pork chop – especially one on the bone – is always well appreciated.

Case in point, these Pacific Grilled Pork Chops from TGI Friday’s.  The two-chop order is a magnificent platter featuring two toothsomely thick pork chops marinated in a mix of salt, pepper, and pineapple juice before grilling.

These pork chops are deliciously succulent and tender.  While the porky flavor of some restaurant chops gets drowned out by the taste of the marinade, the sweet-savory natural flavor of the pork is simply enhanced by plain and proper seasoning along with the sweetness of the ripe pineapple it’s topped with.

The garlicky rice pilaf and corn that come along for the ride are both passable and palatable, but honestly: these chops can hold out their own and demand all your attention.
