We love any excuse to grill, and these Strawberry Jalapeño Salsa Pork Chops are no exception. Try to choose pork chops that are about 1 ½ inches thick; this will prevent them from drying out and becoming overdone.

Pork Chops

  • Salt & Pepper to taste about ¼ teaspoon each

Strawberry Jalapeño Salsa

  • ½ cup chopped red onion

To make the Honey Balsamic Marinade:

  • In the bottom of a 9x9 pan, add honey, balsamic and roasted garlic. Whisk to combine.

To grill the Pork Chops:

  • Season pork with salt & pepper on each side. Nestle into the marinade, covering all sides. Cover and marinade for 1 hour to 24 hours, turning chops 2-3 times.
  • To grill, remove from marinade. Let sit for 20 minutes to remove chill. Cook using a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat or on an outdoor grill. Chops should cook in about 4-6 minutes each side, depending on thickness. Let sit 10 minutes before cutting.
