Pork Chops and Pumpkin Mash

1 lb Pumpkin, cubed
1 c Water, seasoned with salt & pepper
2 pcs Pork Chops
Salt & Pepper
2 oz Butter, melted
1/4 c Milk or Cream
3 oz Sweet Potato, diced
3 oz Red Bliss, diced
3 oz Taro, diced
2 c Pineapple, diced
1/4 c Sugar
1 ea Round Onion, caramelized (cooked for a long time)

Heat a pot of seasoned water and bring to a boil adding the cubed pumpkin along the way. Let cook for about 45 minutes or until pumpkin becomes soft. Meanwhile, season pork chops with salt and pepper, oil a frying pan and pan fry the pork chops until browned. Remove the meat from the pan when cooked, place in a tin container and set aside in an oven for warmth. Also, remove most of excess oil in the frying pan and leave it aside on the stove for a while. When pumpkin is cooked (it should look like mashed potatoes), add butter and cream to it. Whip together with a whisk or spatula. Season with salt and pepper while mixing. Add sweet potatoes, red bliss and taro, mixing altogether. In the frying pan, cook the pineapple and sugar to de-glaze the pan and mix with caramelized onions. On a serving plate, scoop some smashed pumpkins onto the center, lay the pork chops on and top with pineapple onion marmalade.
