Lemon Pepper Pork Chops

Recipes posted a year ago:

The other night, I was looking for a quick weeknight recipe to take advantage of the warmer weather we are finally starting to experience here in the Pacific Northwest.  Rather than fall back on the standby of using a pre-mixed herb blend from the spice drawer, I decided to try something using fresh ingredients instead.  The resulting lemon pepper marinade was great with pork chops, and would be equally tasty with chicken or fresh shrimp and scallops.

I need to show off my newest apron.  This is from another pattern  and fabric I have had for a while and finally put my sewing machine to work.  It is nice to have a new one that can get all stained and dirty.  The other one I had is seeing a lot of use so it was time to have a couple to swap between!  Plus it is reversible so if one side gets too dirty I can turn it around.

Sorry for being slow on the posts.  We went to Seattle this last weekend.  We had a great time and ate some Chinese food and some Moroccan food.  It is always fun to try dishes traditional of other countries.  It gives us a lot of inspiration! We went to the Space Needle of course and also Pike Street Market, although it was a bummer we weren’t cooking ourselves last weekend as I definitely would have been buying some fish to watch the guys toss it back and forth.  Next time!

Recipes posted a year ago:

This recipe for grilled chops and plums I got from Sunset Magazine and modified it somewhat.  It called for brown sugar which truly I feel is not necessary.  The plums and sweet onions add plenty of sweetness.

Margarita Pork Chops

This recipe is packed with flavor and requires very little prep work before starting it on the grill.  The trick is using highly acidic lime juice for a short marinade, followed by basting the meat regularly while cooking at a slightly lower temperature to continue adding flavor.  While you’ve got the grill heated up, you can also cook some seasonal veggies along side and baste them at the same time for a unique combination.

Lemon and Herb-Brined Pork Chops

Now that we’ve covered the basics of brining, let’s get into a recipe that puts some of that information to work.  We’ll start off with a brine that uses both salt and honey, and also a bit of dry white wine and lemon zest to go with the blend of spices.  After brining, we’ll give it a wet rub of more lemon, a little more honey, and some fresh thyme.  Then we’ll finish them on the grill and serve with Monday’s ginger carrots and turnips.
