Sesame Pork Chops

OK, this is a recipe I just sort of made up.  We are fortunate to have access to the Meat Lab at Michigan State University.  We have used the animal protein we have purchased from the Meat Lab to our benefit.  The spouse of one of my co-workers at GE Aviation is a Ph.D. candidate at State and he lets me know what beef, pork, lamb and poultry is available for purchase from the Meat Lab.  The pork chops from the Meat Lab have never let us down, and I made up the recipe because we like everything in it.  Here we go:

- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 2 T sesame oil
- Seasoning to taste
- 2-4 pork chops (can be boneless or bone-in)

Season the chops to taste with salt and pepper.  Place the chops in a zip lock bag or sealable plastic container.  Mix together the soy sauce and the sesame oil, and pour the mixture over the chops.  Place the chops in the refrigerator and allow to marinate for 4-6 hours.  Remove the chops from the refrigerator about and our before you place them on the grill.

Prepare a your grill.  When the grill is up to temperature, cook the chops until done, 12-14 minutes total.  Remove the chops from the grill and place on a plate or a cutting board and cover loosely with aluminum foil for 8-10 minutes to rest.  After the chops have rested, serve and enjoy.

Cook's Notes:
You can season the chops as you like, but we use a seasoning called "All American Season."  You can purchase this amazing season at this website.  We know the owner, Mickey, and we can vouch for all of his products.
