What’s one of the most basic recipes to add to your repertoire as you learn to master the grill? Grilled pork chops, hands down.

My version takes a very simple approach; just rub the pork chops with an oil and aromatic herb blend, grill, and top with a shallot and ghee mixture.

Now, I definitely have a long way to go before I can call myself a “grill master”, but I’m definitely having a blast with the new grill my man spouse and I bought.

Grilling is so quick and easy. Clean up is way easier than doing a sink full of dishes. And I’m finding that the more I grill, the more I anticipate the experience that comes with it. Hearing the meat sizzling on the grates as the juices and fat drip down. Smoke drifts through the air, carrying with it a whiff of rosemary and pork. Flipping the chops and seeing those lovely, picture-perfect sear marks.

Swoon. I can’t get enough of it.

Fortunately, after Fargo had a  stint of returning to near-winter weather, the temperatures are steadily rising. At least according to the forecast that could change at any time. Still, as long as the wind dies down, I’ll be making pork chops all summer long.
