03
Cook the pork - using the 6+2+2 method

Preheat a pan, griddle pan or BBQ plate to a medium-high heat. Cook pork on one side without turning for 6 minutes. Turn over once and allow them to cook for 2 more minutes on the other side. Take the pork chops straight off the heat and place on a plate to rest for two minutes. This allows the juices to settle and they will be lovely and tender.

03
04
Serve

Serve the pork chops immediately after they rested with fresh pineapple salsa on top and a side of hot wedges with sour cream.
