Grilled Pork Chops with Blueberry Compote

  • 4 pork chops
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 5 garlic cloves, smashed
  • 1/2 small bunch fresh thyme

Ingredients for Compote:

  • 1 cup onions, diced medium
  • 1 cup peeled Granny Smith apples, diced medium
  • 1 tsp butter
  • 2 tsp garlic, minced
  • 1 cup unsweetened apple juice
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 2 TBS balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Marinate pork chops in a mix of olive oil, apple cider vinegar, garlic cloves and thyme. Prepare compote starting by sautéing onions and apples in butter over medium heat until onions soften, about 3 minutes. Add garlic and cook one additional minute. Next, add apple juice and blueberries and cook until liquid is reduced by half. Add salt and balsamic vinegar and cook an additional minute to finish compote. Remove pork from marinade and grill on both sides until meat reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees. Top each pork chop with compote.
