What's cooking Wednesday

Grilling season is in full swing around here which means vegetarian fare will likely take a hiatus for a while anyway. Tonight is the first in the carnivore series. If you're at all familiar with the Looney Spoons or Crazy Plates cookbooks, which are popular 'round these parts, you'll no doubt realize from the title of the recipe that it comes straight from Janet and Greta's repertoire. So, for today's What's cooking Wednesday we have Barbiechop Quartet. Their description of the recipe is: This spicy number hits a high note where flavor's concerned. On the pork chop taste-o-meter, it rates a perfect tenor! Couldn't agree more. Although throw me a bone on the Canadian spelling, wontcha?

Barbiechop Quartet

4 boneless pork loin chops
1/3 cup orange juice
3 tbsp each honey and ketchup
3 tbsp mango chutney
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 tsp chili powder
3/4 tsp ground cumin

Arrange pork chops in a single layer in a glass baking dish. Whisk together remaining ingredients in a small bowl. Pour over pork shops. Turn pieces to coat both sides with marinade. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or overnight if possible.

Preheat grill. Cook pork chops over hot coals for 6-7 minutes per side, basting with leftover marinade. Serve.

We then cook the remaining marinade in a saucepan until hot and thick and serve as a sauce with the pork chops. It really takes it to the next level.

I made this last year sometime, and it was really yummy. Thanks for reminding me about it. I think I even have boneless pork chops in the freezer!
