  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 can (8 ounces) unsweetened crushed pineapple, undrained

  2. In the same skillet, combine pineapple and salsa. Bring to a boil. Return chops to the pan. Reduce heat; cover and simmer until a thermometer inserted into the pork reads 145°, 10-15 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Sprinkle with cilantro.
