Inspired by my sister's From Pinned to Practice series, I've decided to start doing the same thing. I, too, have fallen for the lure of Pinterest but have also fallen prey to the same tendency as many others have (tell me I'm not the only one!) - and that is to pin and pin and pin, but never actually try all those wonderful ideas!
I have already tried out a few of them, but I will be determined to try more - hopefully at least one a week.
So, here's the first installment of my rendition of From Pinned to Practice!
And, surprise, surprise - it's a recipe.
Grilled Pork Chops by melskitchencafe.com
4 boneless pork loin chops
1/4 cup olive oil
2 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon steak seasoning (such as Montreal Steak Seasoning or make your own*)
Mix olive oil, soy sauce and steak seasoning ingredients in a small bowl and pour into a one-gallon resealable plastic bag. Add the pork chops and set the bag in a baking dish in a way that the pork chops get a healthy dose of the marinade (it may be advantageous to flip the bag over halfway through the marinating time). Marinate in the refrigerator for 3-8 hours (no more than 8). Heat the grill to medium and grill the chops 6-8 minutes per side (depending on how thick they are) until they are no longer pink in the center. Remove the chops from the grill and tent them with foil and allow them to rest for 5-7 minutes. Slice the chops in 1/4 to 3/8 inch slices across the grain and serve.
I tried the recipe exactly as is, and LOVED it! (Well, Nathan did the grilling - he's amazing at it).

Happy pinning and practicing!
