A Holiday Recipe From King Tom


In honor of the holiday tomorrow, I figure it’s time to share a recipe.  I made this last week, and it turned out pretty good.  Enjoy, mateys!

Pirate Pork Chops
(because they’re drunk and on a plank).
2-4 bone-in pork chops
1 bottle hard cider (I like Woodchuck Ale)
Marinate pork chops in cider for at least an hour.
1 cedar grilling plank
Soak plank in water for at least 25 minutes before cooking.
3 tablespoons kosher salt
4 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons black pepper
2 tablespoons smoked paprika (or pimenton)
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon dried tarragon
1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
Remove the porkchops from cider, pat dry and cover with the rub.
Place plank on grill and place porkchops on the plank.  Cook ten minutes per side.
You can also serve grilled apples (quartered and covered in brown sugar and cinnamon) along with the porkchops. Grill the apples for about 15 minutes. If there’s room on the plank, put them there, if not, they can go on the grill grate.
