A simple marinade with only a few ingredients really brings life to these grilled boneless pork chops. It’s tangy, yet sweet and not overpowering at all. The whole family devoured these.
Now that the fourth of July has past, retail is all back to school stuff. Are you ready for that yet? It seems like we just got out! The good news, at least for us in the mitten, is that there are still plenty of warm weather lazy summer days ahead.
Summer Grilling Series
I love grilling because it’s super simple and super fast. This gives me more time to lounge by the pool, or hit the beach, or just read. I absolutely love to read! With the slower pace of summer, I’m able to read more than I do during the fall/winter season. I just finished “The Immortal Life Of Henrietta Lacks”.
This was our book club pick this month. It was quite a fascinating book, I’d highly recommend it. Unfortunately, I can’t make our meeting this week, which I’m so bummed about. It will be a great one to discuss. What are YOU reading? I’m always looking to add books to my already mile high pile. 🙂
But back to dinner…
I enjoy the more relaxed pace that summer brings. I still plan my meals, but with grilling, it just feels easier. Less dishes, no heating up the kitchen, and the flavor! It just can’t be beat.
If marinating your meat in vinegar sounds strange, let me explain. The acidity in the vinegar tenderizes the meat. Plus balsamic vinegar has such an amazing flavor. This just might be the best grilled boneless pork chops you ever had. 😉 We paired ours with cherry tomatoes and marinated mozzarella cheese balls, which I pretty much couldn’t stop eating.
Grilled Boneless Porch Chops With Balsamic
The longer you marinate the more flavor you’ll have. Ideally, you can put it together in the morning, or the night before, but it just needs 30 minutes at the very least.
