Pre-heat oven to 400°F and line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat® baking mat. Set aside.
Heat one tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pork chops and sear on both sides, approximately 1-2 minutes per side. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, on each side while cooking.
Remove from heat and transfer the browned pork chops to the prepared baking sheet. Place in the pre-heated oven to roast until cooked through, approximately 12-15 minutes.
While the pork chops roast, combine the vinegar, maple syrup, garlic, rosemary, and red pepper flakes in a small saucepan over medium heat. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, approximately 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low and continue to simmer, stirring occasionally, until ready to serve.
Meanwhile, add the remaining olive oil and the sliced peppers to the skillet used to sear the chops and place over medium-high heat. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the peppers soften and develop a bit of color, approximately 6-8 minutes.
Add the pineapple and continue cooking until heated through, approximately 2-3 minutes. Stir in the green onion and parsley, and remove from heat.
To serve, pour the glaze over the pork chops and serve alongside the peppers and pineapple. Enjoy!
