Grilled Kurobuta Pork Chops with a Fig Jam Glaze

If you are like me, you love a good cheese and charcuterie board. The problem is, I often have 3 to 4 half used jars of fig jam in the fridge as I can never remember if we have some when I am out buying meats and cheeses for the board. Planning a glaze for these delicious Kurobuta Pork Chops from Snake River Farms the main ingredient presented itself to me when I looked in the fridge and found 3 jars of this delicious fig jam waiting for me.  This recipe came together quickly after that and is as delicious as it gets. Now sit back, grab a glass of your favorite Pinot Noir, and enjoy this post for Grilled Kurobuta Pork Chops with a Fig Jam Glaze.

Start with one of my favorite rubs from Dizzy Pig BBQ (Raging River) and apply that to the pork chops after you rub a little olive oil as a base.

For the glaze get 1 cup fig preserve, ¼ cup apple cider vinegar, 1 tbs stone ground mustard, 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce, 1 tsp sriracha sauce, ½ tsp garlic powder, ½ tsp onion powder, salt and pepper to taste. Mix all of that together in a cast iron sauce pan.

Place the pan with the glaze on to your Big Green Egg preheated to 350°F setup for direct grilling. Let the glaze cook for 10 minutes or until you see it come to a low boil. Remove from the grill and let cool. The glaze will thicken as it cools.

Now rub the Big Green Egg grilling grate with a little oil and place the pork chops on. Let them cook for 5 minutes before flipping.

Cook another 5 minutes then shut down the vents on your Big Green Egg. Apply the glaze on both sides and let cook for another 5 minute or until the internal temperature measures 145°F.

I served the pork chops over cauliflower puree which was a nice compliment to this smokey sweetness of the chops.
