Since there's a lot of pork produced in the Midwest, I think this recipe represents our area well. My family likes to grill pork chops, and this is the recipe that they request most often. We love the sweet/sour tang of the marinade.
I’m not sure if this is a Mediterranean dish with a Southwestern flair or the other way around. All I know is that it’s ideal for a summer dinner. The tomato relish is yummy as an appetizer with tortilla chips, so you may want to double it. —Cori Cooper, Boise, ID
My grown children still beg for my chicken. They like the savory barbecue sauce so much, they've been known to hover over me, trying to snitch a spoonful behind my back. —Patricia Parker, Connelly Springs, North Carolina
