Instructions
  1. Rub pork chops with salt and pepper. In a heavy skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter over medium-high heat. Add pork and cook 3 to 4 minutes or until browned on first side. Turn pork and reduce heat to medium. Cook 2 to 3 minutes longer or until pork is no longer pink in center (at least 145°F). Note that longer cooking times may be required for bone-in pork chops. Transfer to plate; cover with foil to keep warm.
  2. In same skillet, melt remaining 1 tablespoon butter over medium-high heat; add pineapple, and cook 2 to 4 minutes, turning once, until pineapple is golden brown on edges.
  3. Remove from heat; add rum, and return to heat; cook 1 to 2 minutes over medium-high heat until rum absorbs into mixture. Add sugar; cook 1 to 2 minutes or until sugar melts and begins to caramelize.
  4. Pour pineapple mixture over pork. Sprinkle with mint. Serve with lime wedges and rice.
Recipe Notes

We substituted sweet plantains as a side dish, instead of the rice. Yum!
