I love to grill dinner during the warmer months. I made this delicious dinner for friends. This was so easy because I used some pre-packaged items (rub blend, barbecue, and chutney) but you can certainly make your own.
4 Boneless Thick Cut Pork Chops
1 Packet of McCormick Grill Mates – Memphis Pit BBQ Rub
1/4 cup of a vinegar based bbq sauce
1/4 cup of a thick bbq sauce – an original or spicy
Salt and Pepper to taste
Pinch of Red Pepper Flakes
1/4 tsp of onion powder
1/4 tsp of garlic powder
3 Cups of Mango Chutney
Begin by covering all sides of the pork chops with the Memphis rub mix – dry right out of the package. Preheat you grill on high while the chops sit a few minutes.
When the grill is hot turn the heat down to low and place the chops on – not over the flame. Cooking time will take about 20 minutes. Cook about 7-8 minutes per side and turn for those beautiful grill marks.
While the chops are cooking combine your wet bbq sauces and add salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder. 5 minutes before the chops are are ready to be removed from the grill brush on the wet sauce and let cook the remaining 5 minutes.
Remove from the grill and let rest for 5 minutes. Serve with the mango chutney. The sweet and spicy match perfectly for a delicious meal. I used a mango chutney I found in the produce aisle it was fresh and good. You can certainly make your own and here is how:
1 large mango, peeled, pitted and diced
1/2 small seedless cucumber, peeled and diced
1 small red bell pepper, diced
1/2 medium yellow onion, diced
1 jalapeno seeded and diced – optional
1/2 tsp lemon, juiced
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
salt and pepper, to taste
Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Add salt and pepper to taste.
