Even if it doesn't feel like it, summer is drawing to a close - pumpkins and fall decorations featured outside the market, schools have started, and football is around the corner. I love fall and football, but seeing these signs put a fire under me to grill more while the days are long and the weather is ideal. Grilled Pork Chops with Honey Garlic Glaze is an easy meal perfect for this transition of seasons. These chops are flavorful and tender with an addictive honey garlic glaze that pairs well with any side dish.

Grilled pork chops are a great way to make a quick, tasty meal with simple flavors and a gorgeous sear that only takes 35 minutes to prepare. The sauce reduces honey, garlic, soy sauce, and black pepper, creating a fantastic, glimmering glaze on the pork that dazzles. Thoroughly sear the outside of the seasoned pork chops to form a perfect crust, then finish over lower heat until they are cooked through. Brush the pork with the glaze and serve with more sauce for a delectable weeknight delicacy, or share with your friends for dinner at sunset. Summer's leaving, so get your weekend menus set and scheduled to enjoy the outdoors while the weather is incredible!
