Pineapple Marinated Flat Iron with Coconut Pineapple Rice

Last Updated on August 29, 2022

Tune in for a delicately fragrant and fully delicious way to cook those flat irons, along with the perfect side dish. As you can probably tell, I love pineapple. It obviously has amazing flavor on its own, but is ideal in marinades thanks to its tenderizing properties. Plus, good coconut rice can change your life, and adding pineapple will only make it better.
