In the summer time…..or rather year round, we love to use our grill for dinner. My husband is a grill master and really makes some amazing food on the grill. I am always finding new things that I want him to try on the grill and he is usually up to the challenge. Grilling dinner is quick and delicious and great for our busy lives as parents, employees and volunteers. We are always looking for new ways to prepare our traditional dinner foods – pork is one that we eat frequently. The same old recipes sometimes get old so we decide to try new rubs and or preparation ways to change it up!
Smithfield All Natural Fresh Pork is naturally tender and juicy without added steroids, hormones or artificial ingredients. We found this All Natural Pork in our local Walmart store conveniently located with the other meat products. There are different varieties including a pork loin, boneless and bone-in chops. For this recipe, we used the bone-in pork chops and chose to grill it like a steak on our grill for dinner the other night. We made a homemade grilled pork seasoning with some seasonings we had in our cabinet and will definitely use this mixture in the future.
Homemade Grilled Pork Seasoning
We simply mixed the following ingredients in a spice container:
- 3 Tbsp. brown sugar
- 2 tsp. chili powder
- 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
- 1/2 tsp. oregano
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- Cayenne Pepper, to taste (optional)
Then, we sprinkled this seasoning on the pork and rubbed it in.
We fired up the grill and grilled the pork for about 5 minutes on one side and 3 minutes on the other (see the video below for tips on how you can tell that your pork is done). If you love your pork medium rare, you should cook it to an internal temperature of 145 degrees (followed by a three-minute rest). If you like your chops a little more done, you can cook them to an internal temperature of 160 degrees.
While that is grilling we popped a bag of fresh steamable broccoli in the microwave and made some simple buttered noodles. In less than 30 minutes, we had a fresh and delicious meal on the table! Smithfield All Natural Fresh Pork is versatile enough for easy weeknight cooking as well as weekend entertaining.
I love that Smithfield All Natural Fresh Pork is proudly raised in the USA by Smithfield farm families.
