While a good recipe, I don't think I'll ever make it again. I didn't particularly love the grits (I may just not be a grits person.) but the pork chops were actually pretty great. So if you love grits, this is probably a great recipe for you.

Quite possibly this is where the Deep South meets the Wild West. Go ahead and take a bite. Your fork is waiting...

Yummy sauce. Love it on the pork and will be good on many other meats. I made half a recipe but less cheese and pan fried the pork as it is below zero here. Will measure my cheese next time, I just eyeballed it and don't think I put the entire amount in.
