I have so many clippings from newspapers and magazines, which I need to organize better. So I'm starting to post recipes (like this one) that I want to try soon. It was written on a piece of note paper, without a source and I don't remember where I originally saw it.

How to Make Hot and Sweet Grilled Porterhouse Pork Chops

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine oil, chipotle chile, orange zest, salt and garlic. Use a rubber spatula to spread the sauce over both sides of all 4 chops. Let stand 30 minutes.
  2. Prepare grill to medium-high heat.
  3. Place chops on heated grill and close lid. Grill over direct heat, turning once, for about 4 to 5 minutes per side (or until internal temperature reaches 145°F for medium-rare).
  4. During the last 2 minutes of grilling time, brush honey on both sides of each chop, and continue cooking for the last 2 minutes. Remove from grill and let stand 3 minutes before serving.
