Well, I'm back.... I'm back and refreshed and ready to face whatever life has to throw at me. And while I'm waiting for that.... I thought I would share this simple, delicious and a little bit spicy recipe with you. This quick marinade/glaze would work on chicken and beef too... I mean, come on, it's Tabasco and honey, it can pretty much go with anything!
Honey Tabasco Grilled Pork Chops
Created by Jenn's Food Journey
3 cups water
2 teaspoons kosher salt
2 teaspoons sugar
1 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 boneless pork loin chops
2 Tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons Tabasco
2 garlic cloves, finely minced
In a large measuring cup, add the water, salt, sugar, garlic and red pepper flakes. Stir until salt and sugar and dissolved. Place the pork in a resealable bag in a bowl or shallow dish and pour brine mixture over them. Seal bag and place in fridge for 2 hours. Remove pork from brine and rinse thoroughly with cool water. Pat dry and set aside.
Preheat grill to 375 degrees F. Clean and oil grill grates. In a small bowl, mix together the honey, Tabasco and garlic. Brush both sides of the pork with mixture and place directly over the fire. Grill 4 minutes, brush and flip pork. Brush the grilled side with mixture and grill another 4 minutes or until the pork reaches an internal temperature of 140-145 degrees F. Brush with remaining mixture and remove from grill. Allow to cook for 4 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
