Pork Chop Dinner for Two

If you are a Michigan resident and you like fresh meat from animals raised on a family farm, give John Henry’s a try. No, I am not sponsored by them. However, I’ve been a customer for quite some time and have enjoyed every single order from their farm. I usually order a bundle and exhaust every piece of everything; including the bones.
These pork chops were delivered fresh, last week. Since I was going out of town, I had to freeze them. But that didn’t take away from their deliciousness at Sunday’s supper.
This is such a simple recipe with great fresh flavors. The asparagus and apple mix make a great side for the chop.
It is also nice to have a husband who enjoys grilling. After all, two are better than one for dinner prep.
