Grilled Pork & Pineapple Skewers + VIDEO


This Grilled Pork & Pineapple Skewers with Chimichurri recipe is part of my collaboration as Brand Ambassador of the National Pork Board. Thank you for reading and supporting the brands that make Savoir Faire possible.

Grilling season is in full swing and I’ve been dreaming of these pork & pineapple skewers. I love pairing pork with pineapple. These two were born to be together: the juiciest protein and fruit, grilled on a charcoal grill that brings out the best of their flavors.

How to make homemade BBQ sauce

Although pork is full of flavor and doesn’t need much seasoning, in my house everybody likes BBQ glazes. Since my family loves sauces and pork is so easy and convenient to cook, I enjoy spending my time creating new pork dishes.

This time around, I decided to marinate cubed pork chops in a sauce that is sweet and spicy. The sauce is made with soy sauce, brown sugar, ketchup, honey, rice vinegar, hot sauce, ginger, and red pepper. Perfect for barbecues! If you don’t want to add sugar, you can increase the amount of honey, or substitute with monk fruit (affiliate link).

I used boneless pork chops not only because they are simply delicious, but also because if you trim the fat, they are one of the lean cuts of pork according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture standards, which means less than 10% grams of fat per serving.

Once clean, I dice the pork chops into cubes and cover them with the sauce, and refrigerate and marinate for an hour. Then, I build the skewers alternating pork, veggies, and pineapple.

While grilling the skewers, I glaze them so they are glossy like in the pictures. Finally, I serve them with a chimichurri sauce, which not only contrasts with the sweetness of the pineapple and BBQ sauce but also adds complexity to the dish.
