The perfect summertime weekday meal. Fire up the grill, throw on some pork chops & apricots (yes the apricots) and away we go! This is from the Northwest Essentials Cookbook. My 3-year old cleaned his plate eating this tonight, as did my husband... so I figured it was time to post this.

Ingredients

Nutrition
  • 4 pork chops, about 3/4 inch thick
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt & pepper
  • 8 -12 leaves fresh sage (or 1 tsp dried sage)
  • 6 ripe apricots, halved and pitted

Directions

  1. In a shallow baking dish, season the pork chops with salt and pepper. Add the olive oil and sage, and mix to coat. Set aside.
  2. Grill the pork chops with 1-2 sage leaves pressed to each side. After you flip the chops, dip the halved apricots in the leftover olive oil marinade and grill them for 2 minutes on each side until they are just warmed through and have nice grill marks. Be careful to not overheat the apricots or they'll turn to mush.
  3. Enjoy! We like to eat this with a simple basmati rice.
