Since we've been spending a bit more time being choosy at the store, I have made it a mission to grab some less expensive cuts of meat from the store and try to make something great from them. These were four pork chops, bone-in, and there about $2.75 altogether. They were slightly thin, and a little bit fatty, but I had a idea that turned out great. HOT CHOP!
- 3-4 thin cut pork chops
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 2 TBSP chili powder
- 3-5 TBSP thai chili sauce
- Drizzle of olive oil
Mix together the brown sugar and chili powder in a bowl then liberally rub all over the chops. After that, rub on the chili sauce and olive oil to coat them well.
Grill the chops over medium-high direct heat for about 2-3 minutes per side (depending on the thickness). And watch out ... they are spicy! :)

That looks great. And I'm always looking for a way to work with cheaper cuts of meat. Anyone can make a good ribeye, but if you can make a meal out of something that's a dollar a pound you have skill.
nice grill marks.
being a white-trash-gourmet kind of guy, I'm always interested in making cheaper cuts of meat into something phenomenal. besides, how can you NOT want to pick up the bone and gnaw the last bits of meat & fat?? Nicely done.
Made it night before last. I thought it a bit too sweet, though my wife like the sweetness level. Next time I'll bump up the chili power and cut down on brown sugar. I did not have any Thai chili sauce so i used Cholula instead but added a bit of garlic powder since i think Thai has a fairly high level of garlic.
