GRILLED PORK CHOPS WITH PEACHES… AND MORE.
The first time I had grilled pork chops with peaches was at a small restaurant (no longer open) in Chagrin Falls, where I grew up. It has to have been over 15 years now since that meal, and I can remember every detail perfectly. I love how some meals really make an indelible impression.
Years later, I took the same idea and made a sandwich out of it at the catering company. It was only on special occasions and we always sold out. Layers of shaved ham with brie and a delightful peach chutney all served on fresh made crusty bread. Just delightful.
This recipe is chock full of history and flavor. If you have the time, try to salt and pepper the chops before you leave the house in the morning. Then let them come up to room temperature for about an hour before grilling to maximize the tender juiciness of the chop.
Find a good, strong brie. It will work perfectly with the peaches and balances really well with the dijon mustard. How do you know if the brie is strong? Put the package up to your nose when you are at the store. If it smells like nothing, it will taste the same. Find one that has a light, pungent aroma and buy it.
HOW TO MAKE GRILLED PORK CHOPS WITH PEACHES:
Here are some tips on how to make grilled pork chops with peaches…
- Season the pork well in advance. The salt will help to ensure the chop stays juicy.
- Bring the chops to room temperature before grilling, particularly if they are thick cut.
- Put the brie in the freezer for 30 minutes before slicing. You’ll find that it is really easy to slice long, even strips when partially frozen.
- You can make the peach compote three or four days in advance. Just store it in a sealed container in the refrigerator and reheat gently on the stove.
- Always serve this meal with a good Dijon mustard. Just like with the Dude’s rug, it will really bring the meal together.
