#1 Chops

I haven't had a good quality un-enhanced pork chop in a long time. Impossible to find around here from the local groceries. Couple weeks ago I put in a big order from a local farm market and have been reaping the rewards since. Their prices are within $.50lb higher or lower than the local grocery stores. However the quality of the meat is light years away. They specialize in anything sausage and let me tell you, once you make sausage gravy with their fresh house made sausage you will never buy Jimmy Dean again. Burger, all 100% ground chuck, not simply an 80/20 blend. Hot dogs are phenominal. Last night we had their chops and let me tell you, I can honestly say flavor and moisture wise it was the best chop I have ever eaten. Kept it simple with s&p.

Started off grilling carrots and corn with EVOO, s&p and stuffed granny smith apples with oatmeal, raisins, butter and brown sugar.

Added zuchini once the corn and carrots were about done.

Time for the star of the show.

4 minutes on each side and they're done.

Only thing missing from dessert was a bowl of vanilla ice cream!

I would gladly pay more for better quality. I found a place outside of Memphis where I can buy prime beef including brisket. They also have sausage and even whole hog.

Very nice looking chops Larry.

Re: #1 Chops

Larry it all looks great, but those carrots with the EVOO and making me drool. It is nice that you can find a place to get fresh veggies and it is amazing how much better un-enhanced meat is.

Re: #1 Chops

Fresh veggies and good meat always tastes (and looks) best.

but I gotta ask about that "Burger, all 100% ground chuck". I always have trouble with the burgers falling apart with less fan than 80/20. How'd you keep 'em from falling apart?
