We're having a BBQ on friday with a few friends (5-6 people total). I usually don't eat pork, but that is the main protein. What is a good side? There are no food restrictions or allergies.
Baked potato and a green veggie like asparagus or broccoli sounds good to me.
Grill some sweet potatoes to go with the chops. A delicious and (slightly) different choice. Also, a cole slaw is a nice accompaniment. Adds a touch of acid to the mix.
Cole slaw with red cabbage. Caramelized apples with herbs.
Do you have the recipe?
I did something similar last night: white beans (cannellini) with garlic and chopped sage. The beans and sage are a good compliment to grilled pork.
Black beans and rice would be good also; serve with wedges of lime to squeeze over the dish.
Sauteed apples, shallots or white onions, and fennel, with a splash of white or red wine (or sub chicken or beef broth), and a pinch of cardamom. Or just salt & pepper.
All sounds awesome! Hubby wants roasted applesauce, so I'll probably do that and some coleslaw since I have some purple cabbage hanging out. Pierno, I'm tempted to make your beans too... I mean, after all, no great meal is completed without a starch, right?
You can also make some balsamic reduction (basically simmering the balsamic until it reduces to thick syrup) it goes wonderfully with pork chops...
sautéed apples and onions on top of the chops, serve on a bed of canned white beans pureed with some brown butter. quicker and easier than it sounds!
I would plate a grilled pork chop with white rice, greenbeans and fried cabbage i mix fried cabbage and Collard greens to serve with it as well
Green beans, sauteed with garlic.
Suspiciously Delicious Cabbage (sauteed with ginger and cream)
