There’s nothing like grilling your dinners all summer, enjoying the late sunsets as an excuse to get more time outdoors. It helps keep the house cool too, which is especially helpful on days when it’s so hot you can’t stop chugging your favorite infused lemonade. Pork is especially great on the grill, coming out tender, juicy, and flavorful every time (especially if you use a marinade.) Whatever your cut of choice may be, these are the 14 grilled pork recipes you’ll find yourself devouring all summer long.
1. Vietnamese Grilled Pork With Vermicelli: Juicy grilled pork is marinated in fish sauce, caramel, and aromatics in this fun dish. Serve with a fish sauce dip and plenty of rice noodles to soak up every last bit of flavor. (via Bear Naked Food)
2. Grilled Pork Medallions With Mojo Sauce: Pork medallions, made from tenderloin, are easy to cook on the grill. Add a garlic and herb mojo sauce, and dinner’s on the table in just 20 minutes. (via Platings and Pairings)
3. Grilled Hawaiian Pork Chops: Sticky grilled pineapple is great on its own, but it really shines when paired with pork. It brings a caramelized sweetness to these Hawaiian chops. (via The Life Jolie)
4. Garlic Herb Pork Chops With Gremolata: These grilled pork chops get a double dose of flavor. First, the meat is marinated in a thick garlic and herb paste; then, it’s topped with a fresh and fragrant gremolata after being cooked. (via No Spoon Necessary)
