I’ve always thought of pork chops as being the boring meat...
... The last resort. The one that you make when you’ve made everything else too many times. But this pork chop recipe? It’s anything but boring.
You have smoked gouda cheese, sweet grilled Vidalia onions and marinated pork chops. It’s a total celebration of flavors. Make sure to grab a little of each in every bite. It’s amazing like that.
So, how’d I come up with this? This recipe was an evolution.
It started a few weeks ago when we were discussing dinner options. Pork chops were on sale, so we decided to marinate them in Italian dressing. We happened to have some Vidalia onions, so we grilled those too.
The pork was incredible. It was moist and nuanced. A little crispy on the outside. I’ve never loved chops like I loved those. And the onions were a perfect pair.
That got me thinking … what about a smothered pork chop. With cheese. The onions would be intentional … not an afterthought. Then Marinated Grilled Smothered Pork Chops
Before you get overwhelmed thinking about it, this recipe is super easy. You need to marinate the chops in advance, but once you do, it’s a simple 1-2-3 to grill and assemble everything. You’ll have extra onions too, so serve those bad boys on the side.
