Pork Chops and Green Beans

Our friends (Rindy and Aaron) went in together for 1/2 a pig. We picked it up yesterday from Brothers Meat and Seafood, a local butcher in Maple Grove. Now that we have LOTS of pork it is time to try it out! Kris and I decided to try the chops. These were bone in and medium thickness. We like to keep it simple with chops so just olive oil, salt and pepper for the seasonings. I also made some apple chutney to top off the pork. Apples and pork just pair so well together!Grilling time was only 20 minutes at 350 degrees for these bad boys. For the side dish I grilled green beans and cherry tomatoes. We got these from our garden! This is the second year Rindy, Aaron, Kris and I have had a garden and things are growing great. The garden is at R and A’s house so they do the work and we reap the benefits:) Thank you R and A!!

The beans and tomatoes only take 10 minutes to grill so I added them to the Traeger once I flipped the chops. Easy and tasty summertime. Cheers!

Apple Chutney:


1 tablespoon butter
2 cubed peeled apple
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1 teaspoons ginger
1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
1/8 teaspoon ground allspice

Melt butter in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add apple; sauté 4 minutes or until lightly browned. Add the remaining ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 8 minutes or until apples are tender; stir occasionally
