Pork Loin Iowa Chops

Sunday was the perfect day for grilling. I am one of those people who grill no matter the weather, but some days really scream out for lighting up the Weber. We went to Hy-Vee to pick up chicken , but were enticed by these beautiful chops behind the counter. They were called Pork Loin Iowa Chops and were about 3/4" thick. I brought them home and covered them in 2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar, fresh ground black pepper and some Sel & Herbes. The Sel & Herbes is from Oliviers & Co. ( O & Co.) and is a mix of sea salt, marjoram, tomato flakes, green chives and onion. They grilled up beautifully and they were moist and juicy!! I served them with mashed potatoes and roasted asparagus.
If you are fortunate enough to have an O & Co. in your area, take advantage of the great service their stores provide. Ordering on line from them is not the easiest thing to do, but you can always contact a shop and they will ship the stuff to you. We first encountered them in Paris and have grown to appreciate the many oils and spices they sell.
