Grilled Pineapple with Brown Sugar Rum Sauce

Recipe by: Ellie Krieger (Food Network)


1 - Whole Pineapple (Peeled & Cored)
2 tsps Butter
1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
1/4 Cup Dark Rum
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
Vanilla Ice-Cream


Cut the top and bottom off of the pineapple, peel and cut it crosswise into 8 rings, about 1/2-inch each. Use a spoon or apple corer to carve out the center core of each ring.

Spray grill with cooking spray and allow to heat up to medium heat. Grill the pineapple for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, until it is nice & brown and grill marks have appeared.

While the last batch of pineapple cooks, heat the butter, sugar and rum in a small saucepan over a low heat, stirring, until the sugar is dissolved and the sauce has thickened slightly, about 2 minutes. Remove the sauce from the heat and stir in the vanilla.

Place a pineapple ring on each plate, scoop 1/4 cup of ice cream into the center of the ring, and drizzle about 2 teaspoons of sauce on top (we used way more than that haha- i doubled the rum sauce recipe!).

Note: I used this Vanilla Ice-Cream recipe!
