Caribbean Barbecued Pork Chops: Main Image

Quick Facts

Servings: 8
Prep Time: 15 min.
Cook Time: 15 min.
Total: 30 min.
Plantains hold up perfectly to the heat of grilling and give these chops a Caribbean flair.


  • 8 bone-in pork rib chops, 3/4-inch thick
  • 1/4 cup cumin
  • 1 tsp kosher salt, or sea salt
  • 1 white onion, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 yellow plantains, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 large red bell peppers, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 pineapple, cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 cup honey barbecue sauce
  • 8 wooden skewers


  • Soak wooden skewers in water for 30 minutes. Prepare medium-hot grill. Combine cumin and salt and press evenly onto both sides of pork rib chops. Add mix of vegetables and fruit to each skewer.
  • Grill chops and kabobs for 8-10 minutes, until internal temperature on a thermometer reads 160 F and kabobs are turning to brown. Brush with honey barbecue sauce during final 5 minutes of cooking.
  • Serve with white rice.

Cooking Tip: Grill the chops and the kabobs at the same time.
