May 3, 2019

Prep: 30 minutes
Grill: 12 minutes

Serves: 4

 

Ingredients: 
1    garlic clove, minced
3    tablespoons finely chopped shallot
¼     cup olive oil
1    packages (6 ounces each) Busch’s Baby Spinach
¾     teaspoon lemon zest
1     teaspoon salt
½    teaspoon ground black pepper
4    Valley View Farms Boneless Center-Cut Pork Chops (about 2 pounds)
2    tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1½     teaspoons chopped fresh chives
½     teaspoon Sleeping Bear Farms Honey
1    pinch crushed red pepper
2    small Yellow Squash and/or Zucchini, thinly shaved with vegetable peeler
1    cup halved Organic Grape Tomatoes
½     cup whole milk ricotta cheese

 

Directions: 
1. In large skillet, cook garlic and shallot in 2 teaspoons oil over medium heat 2 minutes or until softened, stirring occasionally. Stir in spinach and cook 2 minutes or until spinach is wilted; remove from heat. Stir in lemon zest, ¼ teaspoon salt and 8 teaspoon black pepper; cool 5 minutes and coarsely chop.


2. Prepare outdoor grill for direct grilling over medium heat. With sharp knife, carefully cut a horizontal slit in thickest part of each pork chop to create a pocket; stuff each pork chop with about 2 tablespoons spinach mixture. Coat pork chops with 1 teaspoon oil; sprinkle with ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon black pepper. Place pork chops on hot grill rack; cover and cook 12 minutes or until internal temperature of pork chops reaches 145°, turning once halfway through cooking.


3. In medium bowl, whisk lemon juice, chives, honey, red pepper and remaining ¼ teaspoon salt and 8 teaspoon black pepper; whisking constantly, drizzle in remaining 3 tablespoons oil until emulsified. Add squash and tomatoes; toss until well combined.


4. Serve pork chops with salad dolloped with cheese.
