I’ve found my new favorite recipe for summer barbecues. I’ve made this easy recipe Grilled Boneless Pork Chops with Mexcian Corn Salad a few times over the past few weeks and it always gets rave reviews from everyone.
You can never go wrong with fresh summer corn. It’s the one food I look most forward to in the summer months (along with fresh tomaotes)! I often don’t even bother cooking it when I add it to my summer salads (although I do grill it here for some extra flavor). Boneless pork chops are so lean and when you put them on top of fresh summer vegetables, you know you’re making a good dinner choice.
To streamline the dinner process but not sacrifice flavor, I start with Smithfield Roasted Garlic & Herb Boneless Center Cut Pork Chops. They’re individually packaged and they already have so much great flavor that you don’t have to do a thing to them except toss them on the grill. You could also use a grill pan if the weather isn’t great. And because the salad can be made ahead of time, it’s so easy to make for a group. The recipe takes less than 30 minutes from start to finish so it’s perfect for a quick, hassle-free family dinner, too!
Smithfield pork is slow-marinated and perfectly seasoned and is available in an assortment of mouthwatering flavors, such as Roasted Garlic & Cracked Black Pepper, Slow Roasted Golden Rotisserie, or Hardwood Smoked Bacon & Cracked Black Pepper. Use your favorite flavor and cut for this recipe since all will be delicious!
