Now that it’s finally getting warmer, I love being able to enjoy tender, juicy meat straight off of the grill. Today I’m sharing a Steak house inspired recipe with you. These Grilled Pork Chops with Apple Bacon Jam are tender, flavorful, and perfect! I’m pairing them with Lyonnaise Potatoes and some Asparagus for the perfect dinner anyone can recreate at home!

Hatfield® Premium Reserve Pork®

Sometimes cooking pork can be intimidating, trying to seal the deal on perfectly moist pork. It doesn’t have to be though.

My grandfather always used to say as long as you are using high quality ingredients you are going to produce a high quality dish. I’m using Hatfield® Premium Reserve Pork®. These products are the highest marbling grade versus all other premium pork, and they’re All natural with No artificial ingredients! They use authentic brining and larding techniques! You can’t overcook them because they are always tender!

It doesn’t get much better than that! Whether you’re a seasoned pro or a novice on the grill with the help of Hatfield® Premium Reserve Pork® you can cook a steak house quality meal every single time (no extra effort needed ;))

Plus, if you’ve ever read any of my other recipes with Hatfield, then you know how much I love them as a company. They have elevated animal welfare standards and care about sustainability. And they are a family run company. From their table to yours you can be sure you are getting the highest quality meat.

Apple Bacon Jam

Let’s talk about the Apple Bacon Jam. The condiment of all condiments. It’s sweet and savory. If you like bacon than you’ll love this. It’s primarily made up of bacon, apples, and onions. They all cook down to make this sweet sauce!

TheApple Bacon Jam can sit in the fridge after it’s made for about 3-4 days. The flavors only get better as they meld. And it’s so good on EVERYTHING, so don’t worry about making too much..there’s no such thing!

Start by cooking about 5-6 slices of bacon, once it’s cool chop it into small squares. Next, chop up half of a large Fuji Apple. Then dice up a large white onion. Place all of these ingredients in to a small pot on the stove (on medium heat). Add 2 Tbsp of butter, add 1/4 cup of balsamic vinegar, and a 1/4 cup of maple syrup.

Finally, finish it off with a tbsp of brown sugar and a tsp of garlic powder. Bring it to a low boil. Immediately turn heat down and let it simmer for about 8 minutes. Let the mixture cool a little and then place it in the food processor to make it smoother. Set aside.

Next, I’m going to make the Lyonnaise Potatoes. These potatoes are a french dish and very popular in steak houses. Their savory, flavorful crunch pairs perfectly with the Hatfield® Premium Reserve Pork® . You can find the full recipe for the Lyonnaise Potatoes here. I’m also making Asparagus to round out the meal! Now let’s get to grilling!

Grilled Pork Chops with Apple Bacon Jam

I like to save the Grilled Pork Chops for last, because they are the main attraction and you definitely want to eat them right when they come off of the grill. Season your Pork Chops. I used a little salt & pepper for seasoning, garlic powder, and a little olive oil.

You should have your grill on, warming up. Place your Pork Chops on the grill. As they start to cook on the underside, you will start to notice grill marks on the bottom. After about 12 minutes, flip the pork chop over and let the other side cook for 12 minutes as well.

Pork is ready when the internal temperature reaches at least 145 degrees internally.

    This sounds so yummy. I can’t wait to try the apple bacon jam. I make a pineapple chutney that I often eat with pork but I love trying new things as well.
