Cuban Grilled Pineapple Slices recipe - How to Make Piña Asada

Cuban grilled pineapple picture

If you're already grilling, these pineapple slices are a great snack for family or dinner guests while the main meal is being prepared.


Grilled pineapple rings aren't just a snack, though. You also have the option of adding a tablespoon of cinnamon to the glaze. Then serve the hot pineapple slices fresh from the grill, along with a bowl of vanilla ice cream for a simple but tasty dessert.


Prep Time: 10 minutes - Cook Time: 10 minutes - Total Time: 20 minutes




1 ripe pineapple
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup water
3 tablespoons melted butter



Peel pineapple and cut into rings 1/2 inch thick (core pineapple if desired). Mix brown sugar and water in small bowl, mix in melted butter. Dip each ring into the sugar mixture, or brush the sugar mixture onto the slices, making sure both sides are coated.

Place slices on grill for 2-5 minutes each side, or just until dark grill marks form, slices should be tender but not too soft. Remove slices from the grill, and serve either as whole rings, or slice rings into quarters.

Optional: you may also substitute 1/2 cup of dark Cuban rum for water, and can pierce pineapples slices and marinate in sugar/rum mixture for an hour before grilling. You may also sprinkle slices with shredded coconut before grilling.
