Campfire Pork Chops

I am sorry for the short posts this past week.  Still not feeling 100% up to par. 

These pork chops are so darn easy.  They stayed so darn juicy.  Okay, I didn't actually make them over a "campfire."  I used a grill. 

Campfire Pork Chops
Serves 2.


2 bone in pork chops (1 inch thick)
1/2 tablespoon Cajun seasoning
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon dried thyme
Salt and pepper, optional
Cooking spray
1 tablespoon light olive oil
2 cups sliced pepper, any color
1 cup sliced onions
1/2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
Fresh chopped chives and dill (optional but suggested)

Season pork chops on both sides with the Cajun Seasoning, onion powder and thyme.   Salt and pepper are optional.   I added a little here only a pinch.

Spray a cast iron skillet with cooking spray.  Heat on the side burner of your grill. Once hot, add the pork chops.  Cook on one side until slightly browned, about four minutes.  Turn and cook for one or two more minutes.   Toss the pork chops on the grill and continue to cook for another three or four minutes on each side (turn on grill only once).

In the same skillet, add the oil, peppers and onions.   Saute for for or five minutes until softened to your liking.  Add in Worcestershire sauce

Top chops with the peppers and the onions.  If using, top with chives and dill (to taste) before serving.

I like to serve these with potatoes done in foil packets on the grill.  Yummy!
