Hickory Smoked Mexican Pork Chops, Grilled Asparagus, Green Onions
This week I was thinking south of the border, not that that is anything new. I went down to the Mexican market to look around and see what they had good on sale. If you have never been to a Mexican market it is an experience. Everything is a bit different; first there is the way to loud Fiesta music, just makes your feet want to do their own thing. I’ll tell ya, a few times I have let them go to…Patti just gets back and watches. Most of the markets around here have a deli set up with a place to sit and eat when you come in the door. There is a lot of good stuff at good prices… we go sometimes just for lunch.
I really enjoy the way they marinate the meats and chicken, with either a dry or wet marinade, both are good. They cut the meat different, too. You never find a 2 inch steak of any kind. They cut everything thin, 1/4 – 3/8 of an inch. This also makes for a short cooking time. The regular prices are always good but unbelievable on sale. The pork chops I found for tonight were only six dollars and change. I don’t remember how many pounds, but it was a grill load. And it’s very good eating, when “Crash Test Dummies “come over they always load up.
Remember that a recipe is simply an outline; it is not written in stone. Don’t be afraid to make changes to your taste.
Take it and run with it….
