Pork Chop Season

November 12, 2021

Pork Chop Season Has Begun


I Just Want To Get Outside And Start Grilling..


Which got me thinking about our amazing Pork Chops and how they are so great for the grill - seriously, they are thick cuts so they are perfect for grilling! We also wanted to give you a couple recipes to get your chops moving! (ha! see what I did there?) The first two recipes is to use when grilling season finally arrives, and the second recipe is to use in the meantime (and bonus tip is to make two of the last recipe, one for now and one to freeze and have later!)
