Spice Infused Grilled Pork Chops

First of all, I have to say this is not the "other white meat." This is pastured pork from a small family farm in South Carolina, Sunny Cedars Farm, and it's amazing. You'll notice the rosy red color of the meat, and the flavor it imparts is wonderful. Do yourself a favor and buy pork just once at a local farm who raises their pigs on pasture, without antibiotics and added growth hormones ... I believe you will not be disappointed.

My husband came up with the spice blend himself and grilled this meal to perfection. I am so lucky!

Look at that rosy red meat

So delicious

Perfect grilled dinner


Two 1"-inch thick pork chops
1 tsp. course-ground black pepper
1/4 tsp. ground mustard
1/4 tsp. cumin
1/4 tsp. turmeric
1/4 tsp. dried basil

Bring pork chops to room temperature. Mix all spices together and liberally rub on to both sides of the pork chops.

Cook pork chops on your grill over medium direct heat 7 minutes per side or until internal temperature is 145 degrees, or until it is cooked to your preference.
