Many cultures have a recipe for Barbecue Pork. In American cooking, we tend to prepare pork roasted in the oven, braised in a slow cooker or barbecued on a grill. I enjoy pork prepared a variety of ways, but especially on the grill with a light and tangy barbecue sauce.
Apple season is definitely a fun fall tradition and nothing pairs nicer with pork, than apples. For a unique twist, I thought I would grill the apples along side the pork with a quick sear and a brush of sauce. The flavors are mesmerizing together because of the contrasting tastes of juicy pork and warm fruit.
This recipe is super simple to prepare and makes an easy weeknight dinner, but also great on the weekends, when you may have a little more time to stop and enjoy the outdoors, while the weather is still gorgeous. Either way, I think you will love this recipe. I hope the video helps guide you through the cooking process!
