Grilled Pork Chops

I have been quiet....and very busy!!! I just came back from a quick but wonderful vacation in France where, for once, the weather was perfect! With the kids we just went to the pool everyday, visited the Chateau de Pierrefonds to the North of Paris.
Evening Rose served on the terrace with friends...Life is good!
I am now back to the US and have just started a new job...!!! Banquet Director at the Red Lion Inn. It is a bit far from home, but the ride is easy...The place is beautiful and has a lot of potential. So far I love it!

I still find a little time to cook and made pork chops on the grill, served with a quinoa salad.

Grilled Pork Chops

Serves 4

4 nice size pork chops
1-2in piece of fresh ginger
2 Tbsp honey
2 limes
2 cloves garlic, pressed or really finely chopped
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 Tbsp sesame seeds
1/2 bunch fresh cilantro, finely chopped

In a small bowl, prepare the marinade:
Peel the ginger and grate it - with a Microplane. Add the honey, lime juice, soy sauce and sesame seeds. Add the garlic and the cilantro.
Pour over the meat and let stand for at least one hour.

Heat the grill and when ready, cook the pork chops for about 8 minutes on each side.
 Remove from the grill and let stand a few minutes. Serve.

You may want to freeze the ginger a little to make it easier to grate.
