To make Grilled Balsamic Pork Chops:
Place 1 package of Smithfield All Natural Boneless Pork Chops in a gallon size zip top bag. In a measuring cup, stir together 1/4 cup olive oil, 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar, 1 clove crushed garlic, 1/2 teaspoon dried basil, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Pour this mixture over the pork chops, seal the bag and rotate several times to coat the pork well. Place in fridge for at least 2 hours to marinate. Preheat grill to medium and place pork chops on the grill. Turn after 4-5 minutes and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes until a meat thermometer registers 140-145 degrees. Serve with strawberry relish (recipe below).
Since the grill is already on, make your side dish at the same time! I love grilled asparagus and it couldn’t be simpler to make – trim the ends from washed asparagus and place in a shallow dish, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place on the grill, cook for 3 minutes on one side, flip and cook for a minute or two more. Serve immediately with grilled pork chops.
