You can tell we’re closing in on the final days of summer here in the States…
School buses are back on the streets, bathing suits are half-price, and my Seattle Seahawks have returned to the field.
And that also means for many of you, the next few weeks may be the last chance you’ll have to fire up the grill before the cool and wet weather moves in.
So before you throw that tarp over the grill for the season, here’s an easy paleo chops and potato grilling recipe the whole family will love!
Pork chops on the grill are a favorite of mine – they’re a tasty change from the usual burgers or chicken!
I came up with this easy paleo recipe on the fly when we found some quality chops on sale and I didn’t want to make grilling them a big production.
Just by pulling out a few standard seasonings from the spice rack and whipping up a quick honey-mustard sauce, we had a wonderful grilled meal!
The sweet potato wedges get a nice dusting of cinnamon and paprika – an unusual combo I know, but wow does it work! A little heat and savory flavor together with salt and pepper is all you need.
And grilling the wedges is so simple. Just keep an eye on them to prevent burning, and turn them every few minutes.
Basting the chops with a very simple honey mustard sauce (also paleo and gluten-free) was an afterthought for this one, but both my husband and I love the extra flavor it adds to the pork. Again, you get a little spice from the paprika sprinkled on the chops, and then just a little sweetness from the honey mustard sauce. Yum!
I hope you all have the opportunity to enjoy some family and friends time this Labor Day weekend. Drink in the last days of summer, because you know in the blink of an eye you’ll be looking at the holidays!
