WebMD Recipe from EatingWell.com

This grilled pork chop recipe features a savory rhubarb sauce that can cook in the microwave while you grill the pork chops.

Ingredients
Prep: 30 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes
  • 1 tablespoon
    fresh thyme leaves, chopped, or 1/2 teaspoon dried
  • 1 tablespoon
    extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon
    salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon
    freshly ground pepper, divided
  • bone-in pork chops, 1/2-3/4 inch thick (about 2 pounds), trimmed
  • 1/2 cup
    100% pomegranate juice
  • 1/2 cup
    reduced-sodium beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons
    honey
  • medium shallots, thinly sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups
    sliced rhubarb, fresh or frozen (thawed and drained)
  • 1 teaspoon
    butter
Instructions
  1. Preheat grill to medium-high.
  2. Combine thyme, oil and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a small bowl. Smear evenly all over pork chops.
  3. Combine juice, broth, honey, shallots and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a glass pie pan (or see Tips). Microwave, uncovered, on High until reduced by about half, 6 to 9 minutes. Stir in rhubarb and microwave, stirring once, until the rhubarb is beginning to break down, 3 to 6 minutes more. Stir in butter.
  4. Meanwhile, oil the grill rack (see Tips). Grill the pork chops, turning once, until cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Serve with the rhubarb sauce.

 

Tip

Tips: No Microwave? To make rhubarb sauce (Step 3), bring juice, broth, honey, shallots, salt and pepper to a simmer in a medium saucepan and cook until reduced by half, 8 to 12 minutes. Stir in rhubarb and return to a simmer; cover, reduce heat to low and cook until the rhubarb is beginning to break down, about 4 minutes. Stir in butter. Oiling a grill rack before you grill foods helps ensure that the food won’t stick. Oil a folded paper towel, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack. (Do not use cooking spray on a hot grill.) When grilling delicate foods like tofu and fish, it is helpful to coat the food with cooking spray.
