Each year, the National Pork Board has teamed with Walmart to offer some great treats to pork lovers across the country. After reading all about it, comment below about why and how you love pork and you may win an awesome grill set and a $100 Walmart gift card. The reason for this awesomeness is simple, National Pork Board – Pork’s Got Your Grill Covered! All summer long I have been sharing stories about how great it is to grill pork chops. One of the reasons for that is because I really like pork chops. They are an easy to make dish that makes my family happy.
One of my favorite things about pork is that you can always find healthy cuts with little or no fat. At the same time pork is an easy food to season and it tastes good with a variety of different flavors and treatments. Pork chops are so easy to throw on the grill and have a delicious meal in just a few minutes with almost no work at all. Tonight for dinner I was tired and did not feel like cooking at all. But, I have three kids at home and my husband was working so I had to cook dinner. My family wanted the weirdest combination I ever heard of – grilled pork chops, spaghetti noodles and rosa pasta sauce. I know, it sounds as weird as all get out. But, they asked and I delivered.
I am not a chef. I am a busy wife and mother. So, I like to cook things that are easy to make and taste good. I took a few good pork chops out of the refrigerator and let one of my eight year old daughters add some seasoning blend to each side.
Next I put the pork chops on a hot grill for a little bit to cook.
At the same time, I put the pasta in boiling water and mixed together some red sauce and some alfredo sauce to make the rosa sauce my family likes so much. Less than 20 minutes from start to finish, everything was done and dinner was served. Of course, everyone loved the meal which made me feel like a superhero. The funniest comment of them all, came from my vegetarian daughter. She said, “Mom, I am a vegetarian, but you know, those pork chop things looked really good.” My husband saying “thanks for a good dinner” of course was nice.
