Applewood Smoked Pork, Apple & Walnut Salad #cookoutweek

*Disclosure: I received product to sample from ­­­­Smokin’-O’s.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.



Today’s Cookout Week recipe is sponsored by Smokin’-O’s.

Smokin’-O’s using an awesome process to bring real wood fire taste to foods grilled on outdoor gas grills.  This family-owned business uses real, responsibly harvested wood with no fillers or glues to their unique product.  Check them out below!




Since Hubs in the grill master in our house, I handed him some pork chops and the Smokin’-O’s and let him have his fun!  He watch the handy instructional video and was able to get the Smokin’-O’s going on his first try.  He had a blast turning his outdoor grill into a smoker and I’m just beginning to think of the amazing smoky things we can make next!

We simply enjoyed the smoked pork chops the first day, then we made these delicious salads with the leftovers!  Yum!





Applewood Smoked Pork, Apple & Walnut Salad

Pork Chops
4 boneless pork chops, about 1 ½ lbs
Salt & pepper
1 Smokin’-Os Applewood Smoke Ring

Salad

Vinaigrette
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tsp low sodium soy sauce
1 tsp honey
1 tbsp minced onion
1 clove garlic, minced
½ tsp stone ground mustard


Preheat the grill.  Season the pork chops liberally with salt & pepper.  Light the Smokin’-O according to package instructions.  Cook the pork to an internal temperature of 145 degrees F.

While the pork cooks, arrange the salad ingredients on plates and whisk together the vinaigrette ingredients.

Allow the cooked pork to rest for 5 minutes before slicing.  Add sliced pork and vinaigrette to the salads and serve.

*Alternatively, cook extra pork chops and use leftovers for salads the next day.
