Sweet Cherry Grilled Pork


I forget how much my family likes pork (you know, "The OTHER white meat") until I cook it again and everyone thinks we are eating something new. I never think to buy pork until I am flipping through my recipes and see all these yummy things that you can do with it. In our house chicken and hamburger are the "staple meats" and thats usually what I use on a regular basis. A couple of nights ago I had an opened can of cherries that I needed to use and had bought some boneless pork chops on sale....I decided to create this little gem of a recipe and the family gobbled every bit of it down. My hubby said that he defiantly wanted this on a regular basis (nothing is "on a regular basis" in my house or there would be NO recipes for you to try out). Needless to say it was a huge hit...hope your family likes it too.

Sweet Cherry Grilled Pork
6-8 boneless pork chops (trim as much of the fat from them as you can)
cooked rice

Marinating Sauce:
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 bottle soy sauce
1/4 c. brown sugar
1 can DIET coke (I used the caffeine free...but I don't think that it matters)
Mix all together. Place in a ziplock bag or deep dish and place pork in to marinate for 1-2 hours.

Grill pork on your outside grill until done.

Cherry Sauce:
1 large can pineapple tidbits, drained
1 can cherry pie filling
2 T. lemon juice

Place all ingredients in a sauce pan and heat thoroughly.

Serve pork over cooked rice. Pour cherry sauce onto the pork and EAT UP!

Happy Cooking~
