Easy Grilled Pork Chops
A quick marinade of honey, oil, vinegar, cumin and red pepper flakes coats pork chops as they rest in a re-sealable plastic bag. After an hour, remove and grill for just seven minutes. Dovetailing Tip: Cook 3 extra pork chops to use day 5 in Pork and Apple Salad.

Calories per serving: 549
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
8 1/2-inch bone-in pork chops (about 3 ounces each)
salt and freshly ground black pepper
Sprinkle both sides of the pork chops with salt and pepper and place in a re-sealable plastic bag with the marinade. Let rest on the counter for 1 hour. That's easy.
Heat a grill or grill pan over medium heat. Remove the pork chops from the bag and lightly sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place on the grill and cook until the pork chop releases from the grill, about 4 minutes. Flip and cook on the other side for another 3 minutes. If using a grill pan, be sure to do in batches so you don't steam the chops. And don't worry if you have neither; you can do this in a pan. See, easy!
