Summertime Grilling with Blueberry and White Pepper Pork Chops

Fire up your grill with these marinated Blueberry and White Pepper Pork Chops.  The lightly sweet marinade caramelizes on the pork chops on the grill and the Blueberry Pico served on top brings a bright, contrast that will make your taste buds wanting more!

With the unofficial start of summer beginning this weekend, I've joined up with some of my blogging friends to share some great BBQ recipes this week.  While I do love to grill and smoke all year long, there is something nice about having May arrive and not having to worry about pushing snow off my grill...

One of my favorite things to grill are pork chops.  They are a quick 15 minute meal on the grill and they are so versatile for any flavor profile you're craving.  My number one tip for grilling pork chops is to take them off at 145°F and then let them rest a few minutes before serving.

I also love to marinade or brine my pork chops.  This is as simple as starting the marinade as you turn on your grill to warm up, or having them marinade for a few hours.  The inspiration behind this recipe was Blueberry and White Pepper Not Ketchup.  This sauce is made from blueberries, mustard, and a little bit of white pepper.  I thought this flavor combination would be perfect for a pork chop marinade so I combined the sauce with a little bit of apple cider vinegar and had my chops marinade in the sauce for a couple of hours.

To compliment the marinaded pork chops I decided to make a quick blueberry pico de gallo to bring it all together.  This dish is the perfect way to celebrate National BBQ Month and summer.

Grilled Blueberry and White Pepper Pork Chops

1 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
4 ]Pork Chops
1/2 cup Blueberries, fresh
1 cup Pico de gallo

Combine Blueberry and White Pepper Not Ketchup with Apple Cider Vinegar in gallon plastic bag and mix around to combine.  Place pork chops in bag making sure to coat each pork chop.  I used Boneless Loin Pork Chops because those are my children's favorite kind of pork chop.  Let pork chops marinade in the refrigerator a minimum of 30 minutes, preferably 3-4 hours.

After the chops are marinated, remove the chops and discard the marinade.  Place chops on high heat and sear each side 1-2 minutes.  Then turn temperature down to medium-low heat, or move to indirect heat and grill 3-4 minutes per side (depending on size of pork chop) with lid closed.  Remove pork chops when they reach 145°F and let them rest a few minutes before grilling.

Serve chops topped with Blueberry Pico (combine blueberries and pico de gallo).
