Summer is here, the kids are home, and we are firing up the grill for a special dinner. We are grilling OpenPrairie® Natural* Tomahawk pork chops. These are the gourmet version of a regular pork chop, and I french trimmed the bone handle protruding from the chop to resemble a tomahawk ax. The high-quality of @openprairienaturalmeat is a meat lover’s dream. So tender, juicy and stunning!I always like to make my own rub, and this one couldn’t be any easier. Salt, pepper, onion powder, paprika, garlic powder and oregano. So flavorful! I finished the pork chops with a dab of butter and fresh parsley. Everybody loved it.

Tips and Tricks

A meat thermometer is crucial for cooking this type of meat. These pork chops are so tender and juicy but because it is a thick cut of meat you need to make sure they are cooked properly, or they will come out dry if cooked longer than needed. I like to remove them from the grill just right before they hit 145 degrees, and loosely cover them with foil. The heat from the meat will continue to cook them. Make sure you let them rest for 5-10 minutes before carving.

Hello, my name is Marisol Chancellor. I was born and raised in Monterrey Mexico. I’ve been living in Texas for 12 years and even when I love barbeque, fruit cobblers and sweet tea, there’s something that has the power of transporting me right back to my mom’s kitchen and gives me a little piece of home, cooking. I grew up in the kitchen and for me, memories are always linked to food, and behind the food, well, there’s always a story that comes along. So, please let me share with you my love for cooking and while we are at it, let’s share some memories, because let’s be honest, we are also hungry for nostalgia.
