Grilled, Marinated Pork Chops
Brown Rice and Beans, Oriental Style

     Red beans and rice with a twist and simple grilled chops: easy summer cooking. If you have any celery left from last week add it to the rice - otherwise, leave out.

Grilled, Marinated Pork Chops 

Total time: 25 minutes
    The marinade adds a zesty flavor to the pork and helps keep them tender as they cook.  Remember, slightly pink is okay, too done dries them out, and makes them rather tough.

Brown Rice and Beans, Oriental Style

Total time: 25 minutes
    Sauté onions and celery, add red kidney beans (or any color/type of bean) and cooked, brown rice for a nutritious side dish, full of vitamins and fiber. Use quick-cooking brown rice to save time. Flavored with soy sauce, sherry and Balsamic vinegar, this gives 'Beans and Rice' a whole new meaning!
