Smithfield Pork Chops are delicious simply grilled but adding fresh ingredients such as cherry tomatoes and basil makes this a perfect summer meal.


Grilled Caprese Pork Chops
Recipe from 
Servings: 4
Total Time: 20 mins
       Smithfield Pork Chops
     pints  cherry tomatoes (tri-colored if available), cut in half
     ounces  fresh mozzarella cheese, cut into 8 slices
     tablespoons  olive oil, divided
     tablespoons  fresh basil, chopped
        Salt and pepper to taste
Prepare a grill pan or outdoor grill with non stick cooking spray and preheat until medium high. In a medium mixing bowl, toss tomatoes and basil with 3 tablespoons of olive oil. Salt and pepper to taste and set aside.
Brush pork chops with remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil and sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper. Place on a preheated hot grill and cook until done. This will require approximately 4-6 minutes per side depending on the thickness of your pork chops.
Once one side of your pork chops are cooked and you have turned them over, top each cooked side of the pork chop with a slice of mozzarella cheese and close the lid on your grill to allow the cheese to melt (if using a grill pan, you can cover the chops with a large overturned saute pan). Place two pork chops on each plate and top with a large helping of the tomato basil mixture.
