Here is a simple, yet delicious dinner. The Pork Chop is from pastured pigs. Pigs can't be grass fed, they eat a much more diverse diet than cows. Pastured means they are allowed to scavenge around for bugs, tubers, and other goodies they might find in the wild. Unfortunately they need to be supplemented with some feed, which likely means grains. The process of being pastured is much more humane than conventional pig farming.
First I brined the Chops overnight with some herbs. Then I barbecued the pork chop on a cedar plank we bought at Costco on recommendation from our neighbor. It had a wonderful smoky flavor, very juicy too! Amanda made a raw cabbage coleslaw. She used Purple Cabbage, Veganaise, pepper, sea salt, garlic and chopped onion.
