Pork Chop Sandwich

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

 I took out what I thought was chicken for our supper the other night, but it ended up being boneless pork loin chops. I remembered having spied this recipe for a Pork Chop Sandwich on Just a Pinch one day.  It had sounded really delicious with grilled chops and a fabulous sounding sticky balsamic onion relish.

I had filed it in my brain as something I wanted to cook one day and could see no time like the present.  The stars were perfectly aligned, plus I had thawed chops to use up.
Kaiser Buns don’t exist over here in the UK, not that I can find at any rate, so I made do with Sesame Seed Brioche Burger Buns. We like them a lot actually so it was not a hardship.

I created a pork chop seasoning to dust the chops with prior to grilling them. It was very easy to make.  I like making my own seasoning mixes as you know. You know exactly what’s in them and there are no preservatives involved.

This one is quite peppery so be warned. Don’t overdo it! It does however go really well with pork! Other than the usual suspects of salt and pepper, there is tarragon, thyme, onion and garlic granules, paprika, and lemon pepper . . .

It sounds a bit unsual but it really works well together. I ground them up in my spice grinder to a powder, but you could leave them whole if you want a bit of texture.
The real star is the balsamic onion relish! Oh boy, but I could eat them on their own just with a spoon!
I adore anything with Balsamic Vinegar.  (Make sure you use a good one.)  There is also some soy sauce and brown sugar and more pepper involved.  Sticky and sweet, these are quite simply fabulous!

Normally I would have grilled the chops out on the BBQ, but with all the rain we have been having I had to make do with my indoor electric grill.  

I buttered the buns and toasted then under my oven grill before applying the onion relish and the grilled chops.

I have to say these were absolutely fabulous. I can’t think of a single thing that would make them any better . . .

Not a single thing.  Perfection.
