Grilled Pineapple

Good with Roast Pork
A Luau Favorite



Pineapple, although it originated elsewhere, has become symbolic  of the Hawaiian Islands and Hawaiian cooking. Grilled Pineapple Slices are a favorite at Luaus and other Barbecues in the Islands. They are especially good served with Pork, for example Spare Ribs or Pork roasts.

This works well on a charcoal grill or hibachi.
