Step 1

Sprinkle chops with salt and pepper. Place chops on cutting board and pound with the spiked side of mallet to approximately 1/2 inch thick; place in a zip lock plastic bag. Marinade:. In a small bowl mix together, capers, caper juice, mustard, 1 tablespoon brown sugar and reserved pineapple juice; mix well. Pour marinade into zip lock bag and massage into pork chops; marinate in fridge for at least 1 hour, 4 hours is best.

Step 2

Heat olive oil in a large fry pan; sauté onions on medium high heat, approximately 6 minutes; push to the side of the fry pan, reduce heat to medium. Drain chops well; add to the fry pan with the onions and brown, approximately 5 minutes on each side. Remove chops to platter and keep warm.
