Grilled Pork Chops with Balsamic Thyme Cherries

Ingredients:

Pork Chops

1 clove minced garlic

Salt and pepper to season

 

For the Balsamic Thyme Cherries:

2 cups fresh pitted cherries, quartered

¼ cup balsamic vinegar

salt and pepper to season

1 clove very finely minced garlic

1 tsp chopped fresh thyme

1 or 2 Tbs. honey

Instructions:

  1. Season the pork chops with salt and pepper and rub the outside of the chops with the minced garlic.
  2. Grill the chops until fully cooked. A meat thermometer should read 160 degrees F when testing the chops at the center.
  3. Simmer the balsamic vinegar over medium heat until it is reduced to a syrupy consistency.
  4. Set aside to cool or immerse bottom of the pan in cold water to cool down the reduction. Toss in the other ingredients and allow to stand for about an hour or more before serving over the grilled pork chops.
