An easy dinner idea!

Last night, I cooked pork chops on the electric George Foreman grill and got the most compliments! I decided to do something a little different. After the pork chops had cooked most of the way, I chopped up onions and put them on top and beside to sear and brown. Then, I sprinkled pepper, basil and garlic powder on top of the porkchops. And then topped off with a spoon of Pico De Gallo. I let it cook for about another five minutes. The pork chops were so juicy and tender. Not dry at all. I made sandwiches with the pork. My husband said it was better than hamburgers and the best sandwich he'd ever had! What a compliment! Do you have a new recipe or dish that you would like to share?

Thanks for saying so! Any electric indoor grill will work for the recipe. I used to have a Sunbeam grill and it worked too.

That sounds pretty good. I may actually try them this weekend. I was trying to figure out what else we could eat tht I wouldnt have to cook on the stove. I dont like to heat the oven when it is so hot out. That might fit the bill.

It's so delicious! And the pork doesn't dry out, either.

Sounds absolutely delicious, BeautyQueen!! I like to cook either pork steak or pork chops in either a slow cooker or on stove top in a large pot. I add sauerkraut and let it cook on low heat for hours. Oh my goodness, it's delicious!!

I have never tried that before! I'm glad you posted this. I'm always looking for new and easy one pot wonders! Thanks!

You're welcome. You would think that it would have the sauerkrauty flavor to it but it really doesn't it. I think I pretty much goes away when it is cooked like this for hours.

I was wondering about that. Cause that can have a very strong flavor.

I am not enough of a cook to feel like I have a grill recipe worth sharing. I like the Foreman grill, however, owning one myself. I like it and I tend to trust i to cook the meat. When I grill on a skillet, I tend to over cook things. (For fear of leaving parts raw.)

For the longest time, I had that fear too. Then the other week, I just started making the most incredible foods on it. Not sure what changed. But now everything tastes so good. If the meats are frozen, then they will take longer to cook properly. But if they are fresh, then they cook quickly on the grill and dry out very fast.

That sounds like something my family would like. I'm not sure that I could make it right now, though. Most strong smells have been making me sick lately! I haven't tried any new recipes lately, it's all I can do to come up with healthy things that don't have a strong smell for my family.

I know! Smell of tomatoes made me feel queezy when I was pregnant. So I had to cut out all tomato dishes for awhile. But now I'm OK with anything that has tomatoes. I still forget to take my folic acid pill daily! LOL! I should really be doing that. Thanks for your post.

I have a George Foreman grill, but I do not use it very often. Your pork chops sound pretty good. I normally only cook chicken in mine. I put the boneless skinless chicken bre@sts on when they are still frozen. When they are browned I will unplug it and let the heat that remains in the plates cook it the rest of the way. That prevents them from drying out.

That sounds really good, I love my George Foreman. Actually got it at a flea market for $10.00. Love it

That's so cool! I got the large George Foreman grill at the local pawn shop for $15. My spouse said they had another one just like it and we got that one too! Two huge George Foreman grills for less than $30! Those things are usually very expensive.

Can't think of a new recipe I'd like to try right now, but I can onestly say that what you have suggested sounds absolutely wonderful. I will have to try making that myself, some time.

Thanks for saying so! I did it on a whim and it worked out perfectly. I thought the tomato would burn onto the grill and it didn't! When I made the sandwiches, I added pickles and more Pico. It was really good!

Anything that cooks as fast as pork chops is an easy recipe to make. I use my George Foreman grille a lot. I use it to cook just about anything since it is good to use because it gets all of the fat out of the food. I especially like it to cook my bacon. It is so easy and it gets almost all of the fat out, and the bacon comes out crispy. When I use my George Foreman grille I don't put any spices on my meat until after it is cooked because it just sticks to the grille and not on the meat. So I wait till it is cooked, then add some spices and let it only cook for another minute, just till the spices soak into the meat.

Yummy,that sounds good! I've never tried cooking a pork chop in the grill. I'm not much of a cooker, so I have no recipes or new dishes.

i suggest that you grill fish. I am not good at cooking grilled fish, but i really like it. Why not have a try? It is so delicious. But, it is not good for your health to have grilled fish frequently, so although it is delicious, you should not eat it often.

Oh, yes. I have one – grill salmon. Clean two or there pieces of salmon and laid them into the grill ware after draining. Then I will apply some butter on top of the salmon and sprinkle a bit of parsley herbs on them. And then I will chop up onions and put them everywhere to fill up the ware. Finally I will sprinkle 5 tea spoonful of soy sauce and leave them to grill for 20 minutes. Yummy! LOL

I've been off pork chops for quite a while since they are always quite so dry. I also don't know how to make them juicy. I'm not a gourmet cook, as you will understand. I do go in for curry pork and stew pork when other people make them. The deterrent is that this is expensive in Triindad. I've never become a pork lover but I'm quite willing to try the stuff if its not dry. I never like dry food. I can also see where pork sandwiches can be delicious. I'm glad your hubbie liked them.

Hey that sounds good, and I might try it next time I cook pork chops, we had them last night too, I'm always looking for new ways to cook food. I don't really have a recipe or dish to share right now, I'd have to think about it a little bit...thanks for the idea tho.

This sound delicious! I do love my Foreman grill, but I am very un-creative with it, and stick with things like hot dogs, burgers, and sometimes chicken. I will have to try this sometime. If I think of something, I will post it here. Like I said, I am not too creative.

I love grilling pork chops on the foreman and this sounds delicious. I recently started grilling a mix of yellow,orange red and green bell peppers cut up in pieces, asparagus also chopped, and a red onion salt and pepper and put on the foreman. after they start to grill and get that carmelized look to them I add a mix of one tablespoon balsamic vinegar, one tablespoon lemon juice and one tablespoon olive oil. Finish grilling them then enjoy.

I have a Georgr Forman grill also and it just makes food taste so much better. I can tell you that it is way better than fried foods. The way you cooked them sounds so so very good. And you are right, they are so juicy and tasty. I mean they are not dry at all.

Great idea, my husband takes pork chops and browns them, then he covers them in sliced onions and garlic and bell pepper, put just enough water to cover them and cooks them down, it makes a gravy to put on mashed potatoes or over rice. With the way grocery prices are rising every day we have to come up with different ideas for the same thing, pork chops are cheap and there are so many ways to cook them.
