Pork Chops, Greens and GMDGeek's Cuc Salad
 
Just some simple grilled chops...
I also wanted to try the cucumber salad recipe that GMDGeek kindly posted the other day. (Thank you!)

The salad... I loved it!!

I gave the pork chops a quick one hour cure with tenderquick, rinsed and seasoned them with Tatonka Dust. (love this stuff too)

All of your stuff is so delicious--thanks for sharing! I like everything on that plate and wish I could taste / try it all--including that delicious salad.

Thanks farmer! This is the only way I do chops anymore. The quick cure keeps them moist and they are so tender. They do not taste "hammy" or cured. They are only in the cure from 1 to 2 hours depending on thickness.
I love them this way. Thanks again!

Thanks! I used a mixture of greens, collard, turnip and mustard. Cooked the bacon first, then added onion and garlic to the drippings. Then the greens, chicken stock, red pepper flakes, salt, pepper. Can't remember what else. lol
Then topped them with the crisp bacon when served.
I like to use smoked ham hocks in the skillet, but didn't have any at the moment.
Thanks again!
