Once I'm done with the sauce - I let it cool and purée it in a bullet or blender- ummm delicious!
I just like experimenting. These pork chops became an alternative to frying for me. If you don't have a smoker just grill them with some applewood flavoring of some kind - Bon Appetit.

Grill

Ingredients

3 lbs or 7
pork chops- bone in or boneless
1 cup
ketchup
1/2 c
wildflower honey
1 c
soy sauce
1/4 c
apple cider vinegar
2 Tbsp
mirin
8-10 clove
fresh chopped garlic
2 Tbsp
sesame oil
1 can(s)
pears in light syrup

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Purée pears in the small food chopper.
2
Add chopped garlic.
3
Combine all the wet ingredients.
4
Place pork chops on parchment paper cover with another sheet of parchment paper and pound slightly to your desired thickness.
5
Take a large plastic bag that you use to marinate these pork chops and put enough marinade over the pork chops to saturate them and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
6
Take what's left of the sauce mixture and place it in a small saucepan on low over the stove with no lid on it.
7
Get your griller your smoker ready. I like low and slow at 225/250 degrees - remember if ur lookin, ur not cooking.
8
I put applewood chips in my smoker grill after my desired temperature is reached. I'll oil the grill and then place my pork chops on the grill.
9
Turn each 35-40 minutes and brush with just a little bit of sauce - you don't want them to burn.
10
At the very end I crank up grill to 350 and sear for about 2 minutes a side - sauce and plate.
