Editor's Qs

How would you suggest to grill pork chops, and how thick should they be?

My wife and I recently grilled a couple of pork chops. They turned out to be very tasty. You just can't help but like it too. This is what I did.

The pork chops I used were boneless loin chops cut about 1 inch thick. I like that thickness. It allows you to get some good color and grill marks on the outside without overcooking the inside.

Grilling them was pretty basic. I simply seasoned both sides with salt and pepper and tossed them on a hot grill. 5 to 6 minutes per side was about right.

To add a little sweetness and compliment that great pork chop flavor, I made a sauce ahead of time. Here is what was in it.

1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup orange juice
3 Tbls oil
2 tsp soy sauce
pepper to your taste
1/3 cup water
1 Tbls cornstarch

Combine the first five ingredients into a saucepan and bring to a boil. Mix the water and cornstarch together, then add it to the saucepan. Stir until thickened.

During the last few minutes of grill time, add sauce to the pork chops. Serve the remaining sauce drizzled over the pork chops when served (or in small bowls for dipping).


The Challenge Continues.

I don't want to give you the idea that I can't be stumped, but... let's see what happens.
