Island Pork Chops

Posted by Brette in Parchment Paper Packets

I can’t get enough of Hawaii. We visited a few years ago and I’m just not over it. So, I created this little “Hawaii in a packet” to console myself. It’s sweet and brings back the flavors of the islands to me. It’s also easy to make with no mess!

4 boneless pork chops
2 tsp olive oil
1/4 tsp garlic powder
4 individual serving containers of tropical fruit (or pineapple)
4 tbsp soy sauce or tamari
salt and pepper

Place one chop in the center of a piece of parchment (see Techniques page for info on using and folding parchment). Rub with 1/2 tsp olive oil. Sprinkle 1/4 of the garlic powder on top. Dump one container of fruit on top. Add 1 tbsp soy sauce. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Fold parchment. Repeat with other 3 chops. Bake at 400 for 20 minutes. Allow to rest about 5 minutes before opening and enjoying!

    I’m going to make this for my husband and sons, since they’re big fans of pork. Thanks for another inspiring recipe.

  • Question: Had dinner with a friend from Ireland this week who lamented the lack of quality pork she encounters when eating out here. Have you run across that complaint in your travels? She says pork here tends to be fattier than what she eats at home.

    My mom always says pork was better years ago. She says it’s too lean now. So that’s exactly the opposite! I buy organic boneless chops. They’re very lean in my experience.
