To prepare marinade, drain pineapple, reserving 1 Tbsp of juice. In a shallow glass dish, combine honey, mustard, reserved juice, curry powder, salt and black pepper, and hot pepper sauce. Mix well. Set aside 2 Tbsp of marinade.
Add pork chops and pineapple to remaining marinade in dish, turning to coat. Cover dish with plastic wrap, refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Heat a charcoal grill until coals form white ash, or preheat a gas grill to medium. Place pork chops on grill rack. Discard marinade in dish. Baste with reserved marinade. Grill 4 inches from heat until cooked through and no longer pink, about 6 to 8 minutes on each side.
Add pineapple slices to grill during the last 5 minutes of pork grilling. Grill turning once, until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Garnish with green onion strips. Serve immediately.
