Grilled Pork Chops

Rose Mary Mogan


This is one of my husbands favorite meat items, and serving them this thick is the way he prefers to have them. There is a restaurant near us in the neighboring state of Indiana, that serves their pork chops this thick, and we had them cater our Family Reunion one year, and ever since then my husband has been hooked on Grilled Pork Chops. So this is my version of the Hog Haven Restaurants Grilled Pork Chops. My husband never complains.
