Meat is what my husband means when he says “food.” When we’re out of meat, he tells me it’s time to go to the store and get some “food.”
The pleasure of living in my head is constantly rediscovering stuff I already know. For instance, while I’m walking by the meat case, I frequently re-discover the versatile and satisfying boneless pork chop. ”Oh, yeah,” I think. “These are food.”
Here’s a 20-minute recipe for pork chops to try on the grill. You probably have most of the ingredients in the spice cabinet.
PORK CHOPS WITH CAROLINA RUB
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 (4-ounce) center-cut pork loin chops
1/4 cup barbecue sauce
1. Prepare grill. Combine first 7 ingredients in a small bowl. Rub pork
with spice mixture; let stand 10 minutes.
2. Place pork on grill rack coated with cooking spray. Grill 4 minutes.
Turn pork; grill 2 minutes. Brush each chop with 1 tablespoon sauce, and
grill 2 minutes or until desired degree of doneness.
