Strawberry Jalapeño Salsa Pork Chops

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:
