Has anyone ever been to Jake’s Country Meats’ booth at the Elmhurst Farmers Market? They travel up from Michigan and have been kind enough to call me in advance so I can freeze batches of their wonderful meats. They have the best pork chops!
I pulled these out of the freezer and put them in the fridge overnight. Then I marinated them all day and threw them on the bbq until my electronic thermometer read 160 degrees.
Barbecued Pork Chops
- 1/3 cup Alessi White Balsamic Vinegar
- 2 T. extra virgin olive oil
- 1 T. dijon mustard
- 2 to 3 T. chopped herbs from garden (I used cilantro and parsley)
- 2 cloves chopped garlic
- 1/3 chopped onion
- 1 tsp. honey
- pinch of red pepper flakes
- Two bone-in pork chops
Combine first eight ingredients to form a marinade. Add pork chops and marinate for several hours. Throw them on the grill, and turn once or twice to ensure great browning. Cook to 160 degrees on thermometer.
