We just got a grill this summer, y’all. I finally feel like a real, 100% grown-up person. I have to admit though, when we tossed around the idea of purchasing one, I pictured grilling all the things. Dainty grilled pineapple, exotic fish, and maybe a robust head of romaine lettuce or two, drizzled with a homemade dressing and sprinkled with a dash of seasoning salt. But honestly, our grilling career started about as timidly as a grown woman (me) attempting to turn the propane on. Turn, cringe, run. Repeat. You would make fun of me if you saw it, and I wouldn’t care because it really is ridiculous. Editor’s note: The feat of turning on the grill has actually never been accomplished.
So, enter our first real grill-speriment, or something that we tried to grill besides hamburgers and hot dogs. Grilled Honey-Soy Pork-chops. I have never really been a fan of pork chops, but WOW, were they delicious! I had been tweaking this recipe, but the finished product was incredibly simple and produced a delicious, not-too-dry pork-chop. Much easier than turning on a grill.
I served these delectable chops with a dash of bottled yum-yum sauce (Japanese restaurant-style shrimp sauce) but you could also dip them in BBQ sauce or A-1-type sauces. My preschooler gobbled these down (up?) and asked for seconds. I felt really granola because I served a quinoa salad and some sauteed apples on the side. Look for recipes for both coming soon to the blog.
Grilled Honey-Soy Pork Chops Recipe:
- 4 boneless pork chops (not thin ones)
- Special Spice Co. seasoning salt
- 2 Tablespoons honey
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 2 Tablespoons Apple cider vinegar
Sprinkle chops with seasoning salt, then let marinate in remaining ingredients for 1-4 hours in a ziploc bag in the fridge. Grill about 5 minutes on each side. Gobble them down (up?).
