Grilled Soy-Ginger Pork Chops

Those of us who are lucky enough to have access to a grill tend to get a bit grill-happy as soon as the weather allows. We all know why we love our grills. They heat up quickly, if they are gas or pellet, and the clean up is easy. Plus, no heating up the kitchen. Plus, most importantly, pretty much everything tastes better grilled. I’m not the first person to say this, probably not even the first person today, but it’s the truth.

Grilled Soy-Ginger Pork Chops

And you can grill the standards like burgers, steaks, and chicken, and keep changing things up so that a grilled dinner is never boring, or you can get a bit more experimental. Grilled pizza, grilled bruschetta, grilled fruit…grilled cheese! Once you get into grill mode, it’s hard to go back.
