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.

  1. I loved this recipe because it was very simple and used maple syrup. So many pork recipes use too many ingredients for a weeknight meal. I prefer maple syrup over brown sugar (especially in oatmeal!). Some day I’ll learn to use a thermometer and stop overcooking pork, but I’ve found grilling to be the best method to avoid that. This recipe turned out fantastic.
