When I first think about my shopping list for our upcoming meal plans I often start with the protein portion of a meal. Now that the rain has stopped and summer is on the horizon here in Colorado we are thinking all things grilled!  One of my go to protein options is Smithfield All Natural Fresh Pork.

Directions:

1.  Prepare and preheat grill on high heat for about 10 minutes. 

2.  While the grill is preheating begin preparing the chops by removing from package and placing on a plate.  Pat chops dry with paper towel and season both sides of the chops with salt and pepper. 

3.  Set pork chops aside and make glaze.  In a small mixing bowl combine apricot preserves, white wine vinegar, garlic, onion and salt and pepper.  Mix well.

5.  After 5 minutes flip pork chops and brush a layer of apricot glaze on the pork chops. 

6.  Cook for one minute and flip - brush a layer of apricot glaze on the pork chops.  Continue cooking for one minute on each side and flipping until all of the apricot glaze is gone.

At first my kids were a little resistant when I told them there was "jelly" on the pork chops but once they tasted it the both at it up fast!  I love being able to prepare a great meal in less than 30 minutes that my whole family enjoys.  Great for those busy work days after Taekwondo and dance class.
