Pineapple Pan-Seared Pork

Pineapple Salsa (reserving 2 cups to use as marinade for pork…don’t eat it all!)

Ingredients:

  • 1 pineapple, diced into corn kernel sizes (tedious, but worth it)
  • 1/2 large red onion, diced fine
  • 1 red pepper, diced fine
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro, chopped fine
  • 1 jalepeno pepper, minced very fine
  • juice of 2 limes
  • salt/pepper
  1. Toss together all ingredients, salt to taste.
  2. Best if stored in refrigerator over night before serving.

Yield: 4-5 cups

Pineapple Pan-Seared Pork

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb pork loin
  • 2-3 tbs olive oil (for frying)
  • salt/pepper
  1. Marinade pork in pineapple salsa for about 1 hour (not overnight!).
  2. In a medium sized frying pan, heat olive oil on medium-high until almost smoking.
  3. Remove pork loin from salsa marinade, place in oil.
  4. Reserve salsa marinade.
  5. Sprinkle salt/pepper on pork as you see fit.
  6. Sear pork on medium-high, about 5 minutes per side or until crispy.
  7. Place pork loin on an aluminum foil lined baking sheet.
  8. Add salsa marinade to the used frying pan and sauté until liquid is reduced, about 3 minutes.
  9. Top pork with cooked salsa marinade, and bake in a 400 degree oven for 20 minutes or until pork is cooked to your liking.
  10. Remove from oven, wrap foil up around the pork, and let rest 10 minutes.
  11. Slice and serve with white rice!  I zest up the rice with lime juice, salt, and butter.
