    I made this for my boyfriend and I. He is a huge food critic and he LOVED it. He even picked up the bone with his fingers so he could chew all the meat off. It’s so simple but so good! This will be an easy “go-to” for me.

    I only have boneless pork chops. Can I still make this? Or is there anything I could add to still be able to use this recipe?

    Try basting with honey about 15 mins b4 they are done, flipping and repeating other side half way thru the last 15 mins. Helps with carmelizing too. Very yummy.

    Came out perfect. Highly recommended. Now a definite addition to our diet. Plus about 25% the cost of beef
