here is her recipe:
Grilled Spiced Pork Chops with Maple-Balsamic Glaze
4 pork chops (about ½-inch thick)
1 tablespoon allspice
1 tablespoon cumin
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon oregano, dried
¼ teaspoon salt
⅛ teaspoon pepper
½ cup balsamic vinegar
¼ cup maple syrup
2 tablespoons honey
Combine allspice, cumin, cinnamon, oregano, salt and pepper. Coat pork chops on both sides with spice mixture, cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, place balsamic vinegar, maple syrup, and honey in a small saucepan. Place over low heat and simmer for 5-7 minutes until syrupy. Reserve to glaze on the chops when they are done..
Place pork chops on a preheated grill over medium-high heat. Grill pork for approximately 4 minutes per side or until cooked through. Spoon a couple of spoonfuls of the sauce over the chops while on the grill. Transfer to plates and spoon more sauce over pork chops.
I was so proud of myself because I did as she said and only cooked them for 4 min per side. I am afraid I am one of those people like she mentioned in her blog that think you have to cook pork to death.
Now that I am full and resting while I enjoy my iced tea, I think I had a good day after all.
Have a safe 4th and remember Freedom is not free! Our men and women are fighting for us each and everyday. Thank you to all the Service men and women and their families that sacrifice so much for our freedom.
