    Grilled pork chops with a blackberry glaze are an ideal way to elevate your summer cookout.

    Ingredients

    • pounds

      boneless porkloin chops (3/4-inch thick)

    • 2 teaspoons

      Montreal steak seasoning

    • Olive oil cooking spray

    • 1/4 cup

      blackberry preserves

    • 1 tablespoon

      soy sauce

    • 1 teaspoon

      lemon juice

    • Dash cinnamon

    • Dash curry powder

    • 1 cup

      fresh blueberries

    Directions

    • Preheat grill. Sprinkle both sides of pork with steak seasoning and coat with cooking spray before placing it on the grill. Close lid (or cover loosely with foil). 

    • Grill four to five minutes on each side or until internal temperature reaches 160°F (for medium). Use a meat thermometer to accurately ensure doneness. 

    • Combine remaining ingredients (except blackberries) in a small saucepan. Bring just to boiling on medium, stirring occasionally, to liquefy preserves. Cover and remove from heat. 

    • Ladle sauce over pork chops and garnish with blackberries.

    Facts about Blackberries:

    Did You Know?

    Blackberries have one of the highest antioxidant levels of any fruit. They’re also rich in vitamin C and fiber, which have been shown to help reduce the risks of certain cancers. Blackberries are low in calories and carbohydrates and have no fat, which makes them popular in low carb and low calorie diets.

    How to Choose:

    Blackberries should have a rich, deep purple-y black hue. Pass up berries with hulls attached, as this indicates premature picking. Check them for mold, and bypass containers that are sticky or stained.

    Storing Wisdom:

    Place your unwashed blackberries in a single layer on a plate and cover them loosely. Then place them into the refrigerator, where they’ll last for two to three days.
