These Brown Sugar Pork Chops are the simplest weeknight grilling idea! Just FOUR ingredients – five if you want to toss some asparagus on the grill, too – and you’ll have a complete meal with about 5 minutes prep.
I can’t tell you how many times Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork has come to my dinner rescue. Delicious 100% pork, already slow-marinated and perfectly seasoned that all I have to do is throw on the grill?
I love that it’s available in an assortment of mouthwatering flavors, such as Roasted Garlic & Herb, Applewood
Smoked Bacon, Slow Smoked Mesquite, and Slow Roasted Golden Rotisserie. And, of course, these Hickory Smoked Brown
Sugar Dry Seasoned Pork Chops!
In the summer, I toss them on a hot grill. In the colder months, I’ll toss ’em in my Instant Pot. But the different cuts also great in the slow-cooker, roasted or tossed in a saute pan.
Which means they’ll work with my schedule any night of the week, no matter if I’m running short on time or have a lazy cooking day.
I made Brown Sugar Pork Chops this time because they’re just so PERFECT on the grill. Then I simply cut up a couple pounds of potatoes, tossed them in garlic and butter, and voila! In no time flat – with hardly any hands-on time – I had a delicious meal that my family raved about.
You can also add just about any vegetable you like alongside them for a complete meal.
