Red Pepper Jelly Pork Chops

Can I just say how happy I am that it's Friday?  I mean, really... my weeks are flying by so fast it seems like we don't get much of a weekend at all.  I'm completely amazed each Sunday night as we are sitting down to dinner that the weekend is over and it's back to work again.  I enjoy our weekends, don't get me wrong, and I make the most of every minute... there just aren't enough minutes to enjoy on the weekend though!!  I need to work 2 days and have 5 days off... that sounds like a deal but I doubt I can get my boss to go for that one!!

Anyway, this is absolutely, hands down, the easiest recipe I have created.  Mix 2 ingredients together... marinate the pork chops in it.  Grill.  Done!  See... easiest recipe ever!

Printable Recipe 
1/4 cup red pepper jelly
1 Tablespoon Greek yogurt or sour cream
2 boneless pork loin chops

Mix together the jelly and yogurt.  Place pork in resealable bag and pour marinade over top.  Seal bag and place in refrigerator for 2-4 hours.

Preheat grill to 375 degrees F.  Clean and oil grill grates.  Remove pork from bag and discard marinade.  Place pork directly over the fire and grill for 4-6 minutes per side or until the pork reaches an internal temperature of 140-145 degrees F.  Remove from grill and allow to rest for 3-4 minutes.  Enjoy!

I was just looking at red pepper jelly the other day at the store and decided against it. Why oh why did I do that???? Back to the store!

Hi Jenn, I've seen you around a few different blogs and thought I'd check out your blog. So glad I did many great recipes here! And this pork, so easy yet I bet it tastes so good. Have a great weekend, and I agree they go way too fast.

This is on my menu for next week for sure! Love recipes that are easy and delicious. I'll remember next time to not let my pork get above 145.

I swear we are cooking twins. I just made a pepper jelly glazed grilled chicken. Easy and delicious. I agree about the weekend ... way too fast. I need some time off, but then I'd think that went too fast also. :)

And look at how juicy they are! Delicious, Jenn. I like red pepper jelly and chops, a perfect combo.

I hope you are enjoying your weekend! I love red pepper jelly; but never have thought to use it on meat. That's brilliant!

This is my kind of simple recipe. Where did you find the jelly? My cousin makes a jalapeno jelly that is amazing. I bet that would work great too! Now I'm reminded once more that I need to get that recipe from her.
