This grilled pork chops recipe is a wonderful way to kick off grilling season!!
Not everyone shares the belief that pork is “clean”. I’ve never thought of it as being “good” or “bad” aside from making sure that I get pork that is good quality and humanly raised.
If pork isn’t your thing, I have many grilling recipes you can enjoy that aren’t pork. Some of them are linked here, below.
When I decide to make pork chops, this is a no-fail way to make them taste delicious. There’s just something about the combination of pork and fennel that goes together every time. Something about the pork really reacts nicely with the fennel. It’s mild, warm, and has a little “zing” at the end of each bite. Add a little cooked kale as a side dish, and you’ve got yourself a wonderful meal.
