- 1 Large boneless pork loin
- Salt and pepper generously
- 1 Can of sliced pineapple rings
- A meat thermometer
Pork loin is alway a delicious idea to make for dinner or at a BBQ. This is a very easy recipe for anyone to make and pretty cheap for what it is too!
The grilled pineapple rings go perfectly with the pork and the juice from the can is used as a great liquid to baste with during the grilling process.
This is a wonderful summer meal but I even make it in the winter because it’s that good, easy, and you don’t need to hover over the grill in the snow.
Prep Time: 10 Minutes | Cook Time: 1-2 Hours
1. Preheat the grill to about a medium heat.
2. Season the the loin with the salt and pepper.
3. Place the loin on the grill in direct medium heat, drizzle some of the pineapple juice over it and close the grill.
4. Depending on the size of the pork loin rotate it about every 15 to 20 minutes and baste with pineapple juice each time.
5. You want the internal temperature to be about 160 to be completely done but I like it around 150. So when the loin reaches about 140 you can pull it off the grill and the temperature will continue to rise.
6. Right before you take the pork off of the grill lay your pineapple rings over direct flame and grill until half tender with perfect grill marks. Flip and grill on the other side.
7. Slice the pork loin and serve with your favorite BBQ sides and the grilled pineapple rings.
Tips and Tricks
Depending on your grill you may need to lightly oil it before adding the rings because they can sometimes stick.
Remember pork is done according to the FDA at 160 but for it to be juicier I always go a little lower.
