Broiled Spicy Pork and Pineapple

Broilers vary in heat intensity; move the rack to a lower position if the pork is browning too quickly, or to a higher rack if too slowly.

  • 4 boneless pork-loin chops (each about 4 ounces and 1/2 inch thick)
  • 1 bunch scallions (about 7), trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons safflower oil
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 pineapple, peeled, cored, and sliced into 1/2-inch-thick rounds
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cayenne
  • 2 teaspoons minced peeled fresh ginger (from a 1-inch piece)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice (from 1 lime)
  • Steamed rice, preferably sticky, for serving
  • Thai chiles, thinly sliced, for serving (optional)


  1. Preheat broiler with rack 4 inches from heating element. Place pork and scallions on a rimmed baking sheet and toss with 1 tablespoon oil; season with salt and pepper. Add pineapple to sheet, spreading all ingredients in a single layer. Combine cayenne and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a bowl; sprinkle evenly over pineapple.

  2. Broil until pork is just cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer pork to a cutting board. Reserve accumulated juices in a bowl. Continue broiling scallions and pineapple until blistered in spots, 6 to 8 minutes (remove scallions earlier if blackening too much). Whisk ginger and lime juice into reserved juices. Slice pork; chop scallions and pineapple. Serve over rice with dressing and chiles.
