    Anybody got any good pork chop recipes?

    I'm talking like the Costco pack of 12+ 1 1/2" to 2" packages of meat. I did these once before but I left them in the tenderizer too long and they were tender, but dry.

    Different flavours are a plus.

    I like to marinate mine overnight in some of my favorite pepper jelly, mixed with some EVOO and Red Wine Vinegar. My favorite pepper jelly is a garlic and onion mix. I haven't tried this on the smoker though, just the grill.

    This recipe is for double cut pork chops, so you may want to reduce the time a touch, but this is a favorite at my house.

    1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
    2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    2 teaspoons minced ginger
    1 teaspoon minced garlic
    2 tablespoons fresh[​IMG] lemon[​IMG] juice
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon pepper
    1/4 cup white wine
    1 cup sliced (1/4-inch) yellow onions
    2 cups cored and sliced (1/4-inch) Granny Smith apples[​IMG]
    1/2 cup raisins
    2 tablespoons butter

    Marinate the the chops in apple cider vinegar, 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, ginger, garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper.

    In a large saute pan heat 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil to almost smoking, then add pork chops, shaking off excess marinade. Brown on both sides, then place on a sheet pan and put in the oven for 20 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 135 degrees F.
    In the same saute pan deglaze with wine then add onions, apples and raisins and cook until apples are soft and onions are translucent. Add butter salt and pepper, to taste, and keep warm.
    Remove chops from oven and add to the apple mixture. Serve hot

    I started brining and grilling pork chops, and I'm never going back. There are dozens of brine recipes. Pick one. For chops I brine 2 hours then grill.
