Ready for Summer with Grilled Pork Chops

Grilled Marinated Pork Chop with Potato Cake, Kale and Apricot Compote

Chops with Garlic, White Wine and Fresh Thyme

Grilling over Charcoal

I had a craving for something on the grill tonight and I chose a pair of big thick-cut pork chops to cook.
The pork was simply marinated in white wine, garlic and fresh thyme from the garden. While these chops soaked in the flavors, I started a hardwood charcoal fire. This gave me time to make the sides of fresh apricot chutney, potato cakes and cleaning kale which I will later cook on the grill.
With a glowing hot fire the chops go on and cook on both sides till just done, about 15 minutes total time. The kale I served with it was cooked in a sauté pan over the same coals.  I served a chilled rose wine with it and it was great-craving satisfied!
