If I have learned anything in this past month it is that the guys eat anything and everything. Every meal better have an animal protein or else it isn’t a complete meal. Well before moving I was doing good eating animal protein twice a week and finding vegetarian options to be just as satisfying. Some nights I just don’t eat the animal protein and I’ll opt for extra vegetables instead.
Pork. Yeah, pork. I didn’t grow up eating pork, so it hasn’t always been a favorite for me. I tried eating it again since living here and I just don’t like it! BUT I do like some extra crispy bacon once in a while ;).
This marinade is great and easy to put together. It worked really well for the pork chops but chicken would be just as good! I marinated the pork chops in a plastic bag early morning till it was time to grill them outside. It was easy to put together and they cooked up in no time. I paired my pork chops with a whole grain couscous with added soy and flax and cooked it in chicken broth, steamed edamame and roasted carrots with salt and pepper.
I really enjoyed this couscous. I found it at the commissary.
Are you a pork chop fan?
