Ingredients
  • 1 bunch asparagus (approximately 1 pound)
  • 4-6 tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 2 tbsp. Balsamic Vinegar
  • 2-3 Garlic Cloves
  • 1 tsp. Kosher or sea salt
  • Fresh ground pepper
  • Fresh grated Parmesan cheese
Instructions
  1. Snap ends off of stalk end without tender leaves. Rinse, drain and pat asparagus dry. Put into dish you can cover with lid. Drizzle oil and balsamic over vegetables, add garlic and salt and pepper. Cover and shake to insure all of the stalks are covered with the marinade and let sit for 15 minutes.
  2. Preheat grill on high for 5 minutes and grill stalks for 4-6 minutes; flipping once. I typically use young thin stalks so 4 minutes is plenty but if you get thicker ones, adjust cooking time accordingly. They should be crunchy and bright green; do not cook until they turn a dull green; they're overdone at that point.
  3. Put on serving plate and garnish with Parmesan cheese. (I grated some from a block but have used pre-shredded too).

Instructions
  1. Season the pork chops with salt and pepper and grill lightly for only a couple of minutes per side.
  2. After turning once, begin brushing on the glaze, turning the pork chops every minute for about 5 -6 minutes or until they are completely cooked to about 160 degrees F on a meat thermometer inserted into the center.
  3. Let the pork chops rest for 5 -10 minutes before serving.
  4. ---To make the glaze---
  5. Simply simmer all the glaze ingredients together over medium low heat for about 10 minutes.
  6. Watch the glaze carefully, you want a gentle simmer or the honey on the glaze will foam up considerably and possibly boil over.
