Paleo pork recipes like Paleo Pineapple BBQ Sauce Pork Chops

Recipe Revisit from February 8, 2014




I've been having winter days off from teaching gifted and talented due to:
1. snow
2. ice
3. lack of water
4. extreme low temps
5. lack of electricity

I've been using the time to create recipes and blog and WOD and declutter, and do online school PD.....and it's been great.....but enough is enough! I'd like to have a summer break, too. BUT, whatever season it is, THIS is a quick and awesome recipe.

One of my ideas this week is shown in the photo above.  I posted this photo on the Feeding Ger Sasser Facebook fan page with the caption,
 "I added a little something to my Paleo BBQ Sauce."
When Ger and Cassie came in from the box that night, Ger came into the kitchen saying,
 "What'd you do to your BBQ Sauce????"
"Added big chunks of fresh pineapple."
(silence.......)
"Oh! Ok."
It was funny.
I can't even describe the size of the bites he was taking.

So, here's what I did to make quick broiled pork chops with Paleo Pineapple BBQ Sauce, but feel free to try on it lots of other things, like chicken.

Pork Chops made with one of our Paleo pork recipes.


I rubbed coconut oil on my broiler pan and placed the chops on the broiler pan.

In a small sauce pan over medium low heat I put:

1 6 oz can organic tomato paste
3 TBSP water
1 TBSP coconut oil
1 TBSP balsamic vinegar
1 TBSP raw honey
1 tsp Cherry Wood Smoked Sea Salt (salttraders.com or your favorite sea salt)
freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp chili powder
1 TBSP Garlic Gold nuggets (garlicgold.com)

I stirred until the coconut oil and raw honey had melted.

I preheated the broiler and brushed almost half the sauce on, nice and thick, and broiled them for 7 minutes.

While they were broiling, I cut up half of a fresh pineapple and stirred that into the BBQ Sauce.
  After the 7 minutes, I took the pork chops out and piled the Pineapple BBQ Sauce up onto the pork chops and put them back under the broiler for 7 more minutes.
Perfection.  (If your pork chops are really thick, you may need 8 minutes on each side.)
Do it soon!
