Grilled Pork Chops and Applesauce

 

We’re having pork chops and applesauce for dinner.  Ain’t that swell?

I couldn’t resist a Brady Bunch clip. And although my pork chops and applesauce blows Carol Brady’s out of the water, I did draw the inspiration from the show. The classic family, serving up classic American dishes, and in this episode, it happens to be pork chops and applesauce.

 

 

I’ve never been much of a pork fan, but I’ve recently enjoyed experimenting with the protein. Brown sugar enhances the natural sweetness of the pork chop, and of course, I have spiced up with cayenne pepper. And the applesauce, also on the grill, provides a sweet and healthy alternative to potatoes or bread.

 

 

Grilled Pork Chops

2 bone in pork chops

1 Tablespoon brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon cayenne

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon pepper

 

 

Mix all dry rub ingredients together.

Pat chops dry, and cover them with dry rub.

Grill 3-4 minutes per side over medium-high heat.

 

 

Grilled Applesauce

4 apples, peeled and quartered

4 Tablespoons sugar

zest of 1/2 lemon

juice of 1/2 lemon

4 Tablespoons water

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

 

 

Toss apples in lemon. Sprinkle sugar over apples.

Grill apples 4-5 minutes per side over high heat.

Place in skillet on the grill, and add water and spices to mixture.

Mash with wire potato masher until desired consistency is reached.

  • Tip: Place foil under your pan to protect it from charring.

 

 

Simmer, uncovered, for 10-15 minutes.

Serve warm with pork chops, and Grilled Caesar Salad.

    • Love the Brady Bunch!
      And yes, if I’m cooking pork, there has got to be brown sugar on it. It really brings out the natural sweetness of the meat, and creates a nice carmelized exterior.
