Be Inspired Grilled Sugar and Spice NY Pork Chops Recipe

I'm bravely exploring uncharted territory here. I'm taking baby (back ribs) steps. It's about time that I gave my trusted, go-to protein, chicken a "Get Out of Jail Free" card. I'm going to get a little creative, I'm ready to be inspired by pork. Before the sunny days of grilling season come to an end, we can all let pork take over our grills this grilling season. To get the grill going, I have come across a new, healthy pork chop recipe that I am eager to prepare and our whole family will enjoy. I'm discovering that when it comes to grilling, "Pork's got your grill covered!"

Thank you to the National Pork Board for their sponsorship of this post with a promotional item and nutritional content information and recipes. 

There is no secret in stating that I am a planner and I love to have the workings of a master plan in effect. Preparing for my exciting recipe debut, calls for a shopping trip to Walmart for all of the ingredients that I will need (and $200 worth of "must-haves"). My recipe of choice is savory, Sugar & Spice New York Pork Chops, simple to prepare, low in sodium, sugar and calories and a promising crowd pleaser. This recipe has 250 calories and only 7 grams of fat per serving.
