happy first day of summer!!!

real talk for a second though…doesn’t it feel like summer is already almost over? like one second we were having massive snowstorms & the next second we were having a massive heatwave, & in the meantime the whole entire summer just flew right by…& summer hasn’t even really started yet?

chris & i went out for dinner last week. (bubbly & french fries at st. genevieve! the second best fries in minneapolis, for sure. & yes, we did eat french fries. for dinner. i mean, is there any other way?) i started panicking about how summer was going by & how 4th of july would be here before we knew it & then it’ll practically be winter & how in the world we are going to survive another minnesota winter after last winter &….

you get the picture. but somehow summer hasn’t even started yet?!

i am pretty sure i have need to work on that whole “living in the moment” thing. maybe. 🤪

if you ask me, pork can be one of the scariest proteins to cook. it dries out so easily. & when it’s dry, it’s really, really terrible.

  • prep the pork chops: use a small paring knife to carefully cut a pocket in the center of 4 bone-in pork chops. the incision should only be 1 or 1 ½ inches long, but once your paring knife is in the pork chop, you can wiggle it around to scrape out a larger pocket.
  • make the stuffing! aka prosciutto & asiago cheese! 😍 i cut the asiago into thin slices that will fit inside the incision in your pork, then wrap it tightly with a piece of thinly sliced prosciutto.
  • stuff the pork chops: gently maneuver the prosciutto-wrapped asiago into the pork chop. i start by pushing it straight through the incision, then using my finger to push it sideways so it is completely inside the pork chop. if you need to use two smaller pieces of prosciutto-wrapped asiago rather than 1 larger piece, that’s totally fine!

  • grill the pork chops: place the pork chops on the grill, directly over medium heat. for ½ inch-thick bone-in pork chops, you’ll grill for 4-5 minutes per side. that’s it! super easy!

  • rest the stuffed grilled pork chops! resting grilled meat is SO important for ensuring it stays nice & juicy. simply place the pork chops on a large plate, tent them with aluminum foil, & let them sit for about 3 minutes before serving them. this helps give the juices of the pork a chance to redistribute themselves throughout the pork chops so they stay nice & juicy once you’re ready to eat them.

  • serve! i finish these stuffed grilled pork chops with a generous drizzle of balsamic glaze. the combination of the sweetness from the balsamic with the saltiness of the prosciutto and the meltiness of the cheese? ugh. perfection. perfection, perfection, perfection.

these stuffed grilled pork chops look SO fancy, but they are so easy to throw together! bone-in pork chops get stuffed with prosciutto & asiago cheese, then they’re cooked to perfection on the grill until the pork is juicy & the cheese is melty, & served with a drizzling of balsamic glaze. a total showstopper perfect for easy weeknight dinners or your next summer BBQ party!


Ingredients

  • 4 bone-in pork chops, about ½ or ¾ inches thick
  • 4 ounces asiago, cut into ¼ inch slices
  • 4 ounces prosciutto, thinly sliced
  • Kosher salt & ground black pepper
  • balsamic glaze, for serving (see Recipe Notes)

Instructions

  1. Preheat your grill to medium heat. You could also preheat a grill pan or a cast iron skillet over medium heat if you do not have a grill.
  2. Prep the pork chops: Use paper towels to pat the pork chops dry, then set them on a cutting board. Using a paring knife, carefully slice an 1 to 1 ½-inch incision through the center of the side of each pork chop. Push the paring knife all the way into the pork chop, then carefully wiggle it back and forth to create a pocket inside the pork chop. (See photos, above.)
  3. Stuff the pork chops: Take a slice of the asiago, then wrap a slice of prosciutto all the way around it, encasing the cheese in the prosciutto. Gently maneuver the prosciutto-wrapped asiago into the pork chop. I find it works best to push the prosciutto-wrapped asiago straight through the incision, then use my finger to push it sideways so it is completely inside the pork chop. (See photos, above.)
  4. Grill the stuffed pork chops: Season the pork generously with kosher salt and ground black pepper. Place the pork chops directly over medium heat and grill for 4-5 minutes per side.
  5. Rest the stuffed grilled pork chops: Once cooked, remove the stuffed grilled pork chops from the heat and transfer to a large plate or serving dish. Tent with foil and rest for about 3-4 minutes.
  6. Serve: To serve, drizzle the pork chops generously with your favorite balsamic glaze. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Balsamic glaze is really similar to reduced balsamic. It’s slightly sweet and has a great syrupy texture. I love the one that Trader Joe’s sells, but you can find some sort of balsamic glaze in a squeeze bottle near the vinegars and oils in most grocery stores. If you want to make your own reduced balsamic at home, simply add a nicely aged balsamic vinegar to a saucepan over medium-low heat and simmer, stirring often, until it has reduced by half.
  • Grilling: If you do not have a grill, a grill pan for your stove will definitely do the trick. I use this Staub grill pan & love it! I have also used this double burner grill pan with great results too.
