Center tonight's meal around big, juicy pork chops.

Throw some chops on the grill for a great weeknight entrée. Choose ones that are at least 1 inch thick to allow time to pick up a smoky flavor without overcooking. Pork should have a slightly pink color when perfectly done.

Three popular cuts for grilling (as well as sautéing, broiling, and braising) are loin chops, boneless loin chops, and rib chops. They're interchangeable in this recipe, so buy what's on sale.
