Thank you for supporting the brands Savoir Faire collaborates with so I can continue creating and sharing easy, fun and tasty recipes.As many of you may know, mine is a mono parental family. I do not mean by this that on Father’s Day my children gave me nothing. Although many of my single mom girlfriends use to call to congratulate each other, the truth is I have never pretended to be mom and dad. I always refused to do that because I know it would be an impossible mission. What I certainly try to do is to be the best mom I can be with the resources I have at hand. And today’s grilled boneless pork chops with BBQ sauce recipe is part of that.I do my best, for example, for my children to become responsible and independent adults. This, of course, includes the fact they are being trained to feed themselves. Let’s say that with the “food department” I still have a lot of work to do with Tomás Eugenio (13), but with Andrés Ignacio (15), I can say we are doing well. I know everyone is different and the important thing for me is to respect, value and even promote that individuality.That’s why this week we grilled these boneless pork chops with homemade BBQ sauce, and my eldest son learned something about the magic of grilling over indirect fire and how by adding a few wood chips previously soaked in water, pork (and everything you grill) acquires a delicious smoky flavor.
Next week, we’ll fire up the coals again to make grilled pork ribs with chimichurri and also with a chipotle tamarind BBQ sauce that I’m craving. Needless to say we are already warming up the engines for this coming 4th of July!Making these pork chops on the grill, which I have to say were finger-licking, my son learned that when it comes to quality, nothing like Smithfield with its cuts of fresh pork, hand selected and cut, which come prepackaged and are guaranteed of freshness and flavor.
