Grilled Pork Chops with Feiny's Rubs and a Mustard/ Sour Cream Sauce

I love pork chops and I especially love them grilled ... pasture-raised pork is the BEST ever and well worth the money spent!  This recipe is to-die-for yummy and is our "go to" for pork chops!  I served ours over a bed of fresh Beet Greens, wilted on the grill!  Yummm!

Pork Chops

2 center-cut pork chops (preferrably pasture-raised - I used ones I purchased recently from Sunny Cedars Farm)
Rub liberally with Feiny's Rubs (I used Original Barbecue)
Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate 1-2 hours

Sear chops over high heat on grill, 1-2 minutes; lower heat to medium, turn chops and cook an additional 3-4 minutes, with lid closed or internal temp is 145 degrees.  Allow chops to rest 5-10 minutes before serving (loosely covered with foil).

 Mustard/Sour Cream Sauce

1/8 cup chicken stock (make your own)
1/8 cup sour cream
2 tsps. stone-ground mustard
1/4 teaspoon cornstarch
1/2 tablespoon parsley, finely chopped
Pinch sugar
Salt and pepper

In a small bowl, whisk together the chicken stock, sour cream, and stone-ground mustard until smooth. Transfer the sauce to a small saucepan over low heat. Whisk the sauce until combined and thickened, about 3 minutes.

Serve pork chops with mustard & sour cream sauce lightly ladled over top. 

Note - Potatoes roasted on the grill and grilled asparagus are excellent served with this dish.
