Grilled Veggie Pork Bundles Recipe

Grilled Veggie Pork Bundles Recipe

"We enjoy these colorful bundles on the deck along with rice and a tall glass of iced tea," Linda Turner Ludwig says from Columbiana, Ohio. For variety, try it with provolone cheese or red sweet peppers...or a substitute chicken breast for the pork chops.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 bacon strips
  • 2 boneless pork loin chops (4 ounces each)
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 slices onion (1/4 inch thick)
  • 2 slices tomato (1/2 inch thick)
  • 1/2 medium green pepper, cut in half
  • 2 slices Swiss cheese

Directions

  • 1. Cross two bacon strips to form an "X"; repeat. Sprinkle pork chops with salt and pepper; place over bacon strips. Layer with onion, tomato and green pepper. Wrap bacon strips over vegetables and secure with a toothpick.
  • 2. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack. Prepare the grill for indirect heat, using a drip pan. Place pork bundles over the drip pan. Grill, covered, over indirect medium heat for 20-25 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 160°.
  • 3. Place cheese slices over bundles; cover and grill 1 minute longer or until cheese is melted. Discard toothpicks. Yield: 2 servings.
