I've had my tutorial from my blog designer, aka my daughter, and now I'm left to figure out how to create and edit my blog. It may take me a few tries to get it right, so I'll appreciate your patience.
After a busy weekend, it's back to work. Whole Foods had on special last week, sales run Wednesday to Tuesday, center-cut boneless pork chops for $4.99/lb. (a savings of $3). In their sale flyer it says, "Our pork is raised on family farms and never given antibiotics." I had previously tried Wegmans bone-in pork, those labeled "from local farms" and priced at approximately $8/lb. However, I was curious to see how Whole Foods measured it up.
Instead of just seasoning with salt and pepper, I decided to try Williams-Sonoma's Smokehouse rub on the meat. The flavor profile is a blend of applewood-smoked sea salt and herbs. I rubbed each side of the pork with the mixture.
I preheated my gas grill to approximately 350 degrees and grilled each side for a total of approximately 8 minutes, turning the pork a quarter turn to get grill marks on the meat. The results were great! The pork was moist and the rub gave it great flavor. My husband preferred the taste of the Whole Food pork chops to those of Wegmans. To round out the meal I made roasted russet potato wedges, string beans and a salad. Dinner in about 45 minutes.
Using a rub, such as the one I used from William-Sonoma, is a great way to change up the ordinary!
