Grilled Pork Chops with Alabama White Barbecue Sauce √

Serves 8.

Note: You can easily halve this recipe for a smaller crowd. Or simply use fewer pork chops and save the remaining sauce for grilled chicken, or sandwiches, or as a coating for grilled corn. From Meredith Deeds.

• 1/3 c. light mayonnaise

• 3 tbsp. low-fat buttermilk

• 2 tbsp. cider vinegar

• 2 tsp. Dijon mustard

• 1 tsp. sugar

• 1/2 tsp. coarsely ground pepper

• 1/2 tsp. salt

• 2 garlic cloves, minced

• 8 (6 oz.) bone-in center-cut pork chops (about 1/2 in. thick)


In a medium bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, buttermilk, vinegar, mustard, sugar, pepper, salt and garlic. Pour half of the sauce into a large zip-top bag and add the pork chops. Seal the bag and shake to completely coat the chops. Let sit for 15 minutes.

Prepare the grill at medium-high heat.

Oil grill rack, then grill pork chops, covered, turning over once, until just cooked through, 5 to 6 minutes total. Serve with remaining sauce on the side.
