Cooking for 2 people


  • 2 thick-cut pork chops
  • 2 peaches, quartered and pits removed
  • 1 green beans, trimmed
  • 2 tbsp. chopped basil
  • kosher salt and black pepper as needed

Honey Ginger Glaze

  • 0.5 cup sweet chili sauce
  • 0.5 cup honey
  • 0.25 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp. chopped ginger
  • 1 tbsp. chopped garlic
  • 0.25 sesame seeds

1 Food Prep

First, combine the honey ginger glaze ingredients in a food processor and process for 30 seconds, or until smooth. Then transfer the glaze to a small stainless steel pot.

Next, prepare the green beans and peaches on a cutting board. Trim the green beans and cut the peaches in half, remove the pits, and then quarter the peaches. Keeping the green beans separate from the peaches, place them on opposite sides of a baking pan and drizzle with oil. Lightly toss the peaches and green beans in the oil, making sure to evenly coat them.

Finally, place the pork chops onto a small baking pan, and season them with a pinch of salt and pepper. Then, lightly drizzle oil on each side of the pork chop.

2 Grill Prep

Fuel: We recommend Kingsford® Charcoal with Applewood for its sweet and fruity wood flavor.

Method: Two-Zone Method

Temp: 450°F (High Heat)

3 The Cook

  • When you’re at temp, put cooking oil on a folded paper towel. Grab the oiled paper towel with long-handled tongs and oil the grate thoroughly.

  • Transfer the pot with the glaze ingredients to the cool side of the grill and allow it to heat up for 5 to 10 minutes while stirring occasionally.

  • Place the pork chops on the grill, and cook 5 to 7 minutes on each side until they reach an internal temperature of 145°F on a digital meat thermometer.

  • Toward the end of the grilling, brush the pork chops generously with the honey ginger glaze, and allow them to slightly caramelize.
  • Keeping the peaches and green beans separate, grill them on each side for 3 to 5 minutes until slightly charred. Remove them from the grill with tongs, and place them into a small bowl. Pour in a little bit of the honey ginger glaze and sesame seeds.

  • Remove pork chops from the grill, and transfer them to a cutting board. Allow the pork chops to rest for 3 to 5 minutes.

  • Place the grilled beans and peaches onto a plate.
  • Slice the pork chops, and arrange over the green beans and peaches.
  • Drizzle honey ginger glaze over the pork.
  • Top with torn basil and serve.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely amazing! I was so glad I tried this recipe. It was absolutely amazing! The cooking time was perfect. The peach glaze was the best part of the recipe. I ended up using 3 times more on my pork chop because it was so tasty. I’ll definitely make this again.
