Paleo Pineapple BBQ Sauce with Molasses on Pork Chops




You’re going to love this BBQ sauce. You can put it on chicken, on top of meatloaf, and like I did this week, on pork chops. Broiling the pork chops makes for a delicious meal and this paleo BBQ sauce couldn’t be any easier.

I rubbed coconut oil on my broiler pan and placed the chops on the broiler pan.

I put the following ingredients in a small bowl:

1 6 oz can organic tomato paste
3 TBSP water
1 TBSP coconut oil
1 TBSP balsamic vinegar
1 TBSP raw honey

1 TBSP molasses
1 tsp Cherry Wood Smoked Sea Salt ( or your favorite sea salt)
freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1 TBSP Garlic Gold nuggets (
(fresh pineapple is added later)
(You may need to warm up the sauce to blend it. Mine usually blends up just fine, but now and then it needs just a little warming)
I preheated the broiler and brushed almost half the sauce on, nice and thick, and broiled them for 7 minutes.
While they were broiling, I cut up some fresh pineapple and stirred that into the BBQ sauce.
  After the 7 minutes, I took the pork chops out and piled the Pineapple BBQ Sauce up onto the pork chops and put them back under the broiler for 7 more minutes.
Perfection.  (If your pork chops are really thick, you may need 8 minutes on each side.)
Do it soon!
Ger ordered these up for our Family Night Dinner, along with Eggs in Roasted Tomatoes and a new vegetable dish with roasted beets and golden beets. (I’ll blog that one next) This was a lot to do on a Tuesday night after school but it was a good plan. Of course, you know how the best laid plans go…
Cassie got the flu, so I needed to rush the cooking so Jack and I could take the food (in meal containers) to the box for Ger. Then Jess decided to come early after a meeting after school, so she helped me with peeling and chopping the beets. That helped a lot. She took her food home in containers, too.
Anyway, everyone got a delicious meal even though we didn’t get to eat it together. Beautiful, am I right?
Got a photo with Ger while I was delivering these meals, too.
