Serving Size:
1 pork chop

    Diet Types:
  • Diabetes
  • Dialysis


  • 2  slices red onion
  • 2  slices green bell pepper
  • 2 boneless pork chops, 4 ounces each
  • 4 canned pineapple slices
  • 2 teaspoons teriyaki sauce
  • 2 tablespoons trans-fat free margarine
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Slice red onion and bell pepper into 1/4" thick slices.
  2. Trim fat from pork chops. Lay each pork chop on a separate square of aluminum foil. 
  3. Top each pork chop with a slice of red onion, bell pepper and two pineapple slices.
  4. Drizzle each with 1 teaspoon teriyaki sauce.
  5. Divide margarine and place half on each pork chop.
  6. Sprinkle with black pepper if desired.
  7. Wrap foil tightly around each chop, rolling ends to seal.
  8. Cook on barbeque or in 350ºF oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until done.

Helpful hints

  • Be sure to wrap foil tightly so juices don’t escape while cooking.
  • If, after 15 or 20 minutes, the chops are not completely cooked, rewrap and cook longer.
  • Be careful opening the foil after cooking—steam is very hot.
  • If you are on a lower protein diet, buy smaller pork chops and  weigh cooked meat to match your meal plan.
