porterhouse pork chop Who says steaks should have all the fun? Ask your butcher for a “porterhouse” pork chop cut next time you are at the grocery and see what you’ve been missing! I came up with this little recipe while searching for something “a little sweet, a little salty, and a little spicy”. I think its a winner. Try it out!


1 TBSP Cracked Black Pepper

2 tsp kosher salt

3 TBSP raw honey

Juice from 1/2 orange

1/2 tsp ground ginger

1 TBSP apple cidar vinegar

1 clove minced garlic

2 tsp Sriracha hot chile sauce

2 bone-in porterhouse pork chops, thick cut


1) Preheat the grill to 450 F.

2) Dust chops with black pepper and kosher salt

3) Prepare the citrus honey glaze by combining remaining ingredients in smll bowl. Honey may need to be heated slightly if too thick to stir in.

4) Liberally glaze each chop with the mixture before placing on grill. Re-glaze while cooking.

5) Enjoy!
