Spring BBQ Time

26 Apr

So with winter in full decline, and the smells of spring in the air. What better way to celebrate the changing of the seasons than with some culinary fun. A friend and I cooked up some marinated pork chops, asparagus, and baby potatoes last night, all done on the trusty BBQ. So if you’re looking for a meal idea, consider this option, its easy!

For the marinade, mix up some olive oil and soy sauce, add ample amounts of brown sugar, and spice things up with rosemary, pepper, parsley, and some minced garlic or garlic salt. Stir that bad boy up until its fairly consistant. Take your pork chops and place them in your marinade, this can be in a bowl, or in a ziplock bag, just make sure they are fully coated. For best results let the pork marinate for 6-12 hours of possible, if your pushed for time, an hour or so will do.

Wrap asparagus in tinfoil with some salt, butter, and fresh lemon juice squeezed in. Do the same with halved baby potatoes, with some diced pepper and onion added if you have them.

All of these items can now be cooked on your BBQ, put the potatoes on first, then the asparagus, and finally the pork chops, you can continue to baste them with your marinade as you cook them. Be mindful not to overcook the pork, that way it’ll be nice and tender. When its all done, start dishing out from the tinfoil, and chow down with a side of apple sauce. Delicious!

Cooking doesn’t have to be difficult, there are no rules, your tastebuds are the only judge, so get creative!
