Pork Chops Hawaii (Schweinesteak Hawaii)

Pork chops with pineapple
Schweinesteak Hawaii
These pork chops get their Hawaii flavor from grilled pineapple, and a German twist with melted cheese on top. The pineapple in this dish adds a bright acidity that complements the pork. Also great on the grill!

Servings 2


  • 1 small pineapple
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 2 pork chops approx 6 oz each
  • salt and pepper to season pork chops
  • 2 slices butter cheese or other melting cheese
  • 2 cherry tomatoes


  • Remove the base and stem of the pineapple. Place the pineapple on a cutting board, remove the outer rind, and separate the flesh from the core. Slice the remaining pineapple flesh into long, thin strips (roughly the same size as each pork chop).
  • In a high sided pan, heat 1 Tbsp of oil and brown the seasoned pork chops on medium high heat for approximately 3 minutes on each side. Set the chops aside on a plate, add another tablespoon of oil to the pan, and brown pineapple slices on each side for 1 minute, remove from the pan, and place on top of the pork chops.
  • Place the pineapple topped pork chops back in the pan and season lightly with pepper. Top with slices of cheese, cover, and simmer on medium heat for 2-3 minutes.
  • Top with cherry tomato slices and serve.
