A Reason to Grill

Sometimes a grilled juicy pork chop hits the spot better than a steak. This recipe combines maple, lemon, and red pepper for a simple but miraculous sauce. It’s extra easy because the marinade is also heated while the chops are on the grill to make a hot, tangy maple syrup sauce to serve alongside the meat. Serve with Wilted Kale and Fried Apples. The sauce is excellent poured over the kale dish. This recipe is a reason to grill all year long.
