Happy Sunday! I hope everyone’s weekends were great. Mine was pretty mellow and relaxing, which is always nice! We had our first legitimate snow storm come through Saturday so it was the perfect excuse to get snowed in! Before re-capping though, I wanted to share a recipe I made last week.
I was really missing the grill so decided to fire it up! Even though it was about 25 degrees out it was definitely worth it (or maybe I should ask Andy that since he was the one who ended up doing the dirty work). I wanted to grill some pork chops but didn’t want to make my barbecue and rosemary chops.
I came up with Grilled Apple and Bacon Pork chops. The apple and bacon is really just a saute that I topped the pork chops with once they were off the grill.
Grilled Apple and Bacon Pork Chops
- 3 Bone-in Pork Chops
- 1 Gala Apple, diced
- 1/2 Small Red Onion, chopped
- 2 Slices of Thick Bacon, cut into small pieces
- Coconut Oil
- Salt, Pepper, Sage
Melt about 2 tablespoons of coconut oil in the microwave and pour over your pork chops. Try to have them in a warm place so the oil doesn’t harden right away. Sprinkle each side with salt, pepper, and sage. Place the pork chops on grill over medium high heat. Grill one side for about 8-10 minutes. Flip, and cook the other side for 8 – 10 minutes or until cooked through.
While the chops are grilling you can prepare the Apple and Bacon saute. Take a teaspoon of coconut oil and place in a hot pan over medium heat. Put your bacon in the pan first and cook for about a minute so that your pan is nice and greased. Add the apple and onions. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and sage. Continue cooking and mixing around for 8 – 10 minutes. Leave on low until pork chops are done.
Top your pork chops with the apple and bacon saute! I loved this dish. I hope you do too!
