Black Pepper Chops with Molasses Butter
Molasses butter adds an unexpected and pleasant flavor punch---not to mention enticing aroma---to hot-off-the-grill chops.
- 4 boneless center loin chops, 1 1/2-inch thick
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1 Tbs molasses
- 1/2 tsp lemon juice
- 4 Tbs coarsely ground black pepper
- In small bowl blend butter, molasses and lemon juice with fork. Cover and refrigerate.
- Rub chops on both sides evenly with pepper. Grill chops over a medium-hot fire for 12-15 minutes, turning once. Top each chop with a tablespoon of molasses butter.
