Total Time:
18 mins


  • 4 3/4-inch-thick boneless top loin pork chops

  • Salt

  • Ground black pepper

  • 1 peeled and cored fresh pineapple

  • 3 tablespoon orange marmalade

  • ½ cup plain yogurt

  • ¼ cup roasted lightly salted cashew halves, coarsely chopped


  1. Sprinkle pork lightly with salt and pepper. Cut pineapple into 1/2-inch-thick slices; set aside.

  2. For a charcoal grill, place chops on the rack of uncovered grill over medium coals for 4 minutes. Turn; add pineapple. Brush chops and pineapple with 2 tablespoons of the marmalade. Grill 3 to 5 minutes more or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into pork registers 160°F, turning pineapple halfway through grilling.

  3. Meanwhile, combine yogurt and remaining marmalade. Arrange pineapple and chops on plates. Top with yogurt; sprinkle with nuts.
