Pork Recipe - Pineapple Pork Chops

These chops are a boon to the busy cook. There is no frying involved, they are simply marinated for a few hours and then baked until tender. The only last-minute attention is the reduction of the slightly fruity rich brown syrup.

5-6 (700g) pork loin chops (weight after trimming)
1 large onion, coarsely grated
2 cloves garlic, crushed
10 fresh sage leaves, finely chopped or 2ml dried
1 x 170g can unsweetened pineapple juice
20ml soy sauce
10ml honey
50ml sultanas

The chops should be de-rinded and trimmed of excess fat before weighing. Arrange to fit closely in glass baking dish. Sprinkle onion, garlic and sage over. Mix pineapple juice, soy sauce and honey. Pour over chops, cover and leave for about 3 hours, turning twice. Add sultanas and bake, covered, at 160ºC for about 1 hour 20 minutes or until tender. Remove chops to serving dish and keep warm. Pour juices into a small saucepan and boil over high heat until slightly reduced and a rich, caramel brown. Pour over chops. Especially good served with rice and tossed with mushrooms and spring onions, and vegetables or a salad. Serves 5
