Grilled Pork Chops

We're supposed to get some snow this week so SP took advantage of the dry weather to grill some pork chops. We also had couscous cooked with chicken broth and scallions and a garden salad.

It was his first time grilling pork and he was sidetracked by a woman at the door trying to gain support for the Clean Water Act, so the chops got a little overdone. They still had great flavor from the grill and a nice deep color.

I'm amazed at how fresh and tasty the salad fixings have been given that it's February in the Northeast and everything is imported from warmer climates. I diced cucumber, cherry tomatoes, scallions, red onion, mushrooms and carrots and tossed that with some chopped romaine. SP found some sliced black olives leftover from the calzones so we threw those in as well. I had mine with Caesar vinaigrette and grated cheese.

Pin It!


  1. That pork looks delicious! Does it have some sort of seasoning on it? It just looks so yum and it has a beautiful colour!

  2. Katie - I think he just used salt and pepper. The color comes from the smoke - we use hardwood charcoal and it imparts a beautiful color and smokiness.

  3. Scrumptious!

    Hey! I was going through some of my mom's King Arthur Flour magazines and found a yummy looking/sounding breakfast to go idea called "Breakfast Calzones". I thought of you because you can make them ahead and freeze them for up to 2 months. If you want the recipe and have a fax machine you have access to, email me the fax number. It's too long to type out!

  4. D - That sounds fun! I'll send you SP's fax machine number tomorrow (he has a snow day today!)

  5. Thanks for the well wishes HC! I'm feeling much better. Your food certainly looks tasty - even the pork chops!
