Mojito Porterhouse Pork Chops

We love these grilled thick-cut porterhouse chops marinated in Portland’s delicious La Comelona Chile Negro salsa. And maybe our favorite part, the Mojito glaze, made with local honey, brushed over them as they finish cooking. Try it with Newk’s Mango Habanero hot sauce and a pinch of Jacobsen’s salt sprinkled on top.
