How to make it

  • Season both side of pork chops with salt and pepper. In a large ziplock bag, add the garlic and rosemary and smash until the garlic is like a paste. Add the pork, oil and balsamic and "smoosh" around in bag. Marinate pork for at least 2 hours or overnight.
  • Grill pork chops 5-8 minutes on each side or until internal temp is 140 degrees. Take off grill, lightly tent with foil and let rest 8-10 minutes.
  • Sweet Potato Polenta:
  • Bake sweet potato rubbed with olive oil, wrapped in foil in oven at 350 degrees until soft. Take skin off and mash with cream, salt and pepper until smooth.
  • In a saucepan, over medium heat, bring the water and milk to a boil. Slowly stir in the polenta. Cook, stirring constantly, for 15 minutes. Add the sweet potato. Stir in a little more cream for a smooth and creamy texture. Season with salt and pepper. Taste to make sure you have a creamy texture not gritty. Remove from the heat, add butter and serve immediately.
  • Arugula Salad:
  • Place greens in bowl. Add oil and vinegar and some of the cheese. Toss lightly with tongs.
  • To plate:
  • Spoon polenta on serving plate. Place pork chop halfway on polenta. Top pork chop high with arugula salad and additional shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano.

    This is super delicious and plates up beautifully! Thanks for sharing the recipe. I didn't have a sweet potato, but I did just happen to have some butternut squash and fennel puree in the freezer, so used that instead. I left out the cream at the end, and added lots of fresh shaved fennel to the salad ~ o yeah!

    Wow! You are sooo creative! Sweet potato polenta??? Great idea! Does marinating the pork break down the meat so that they are more tender? It's so hard to get tender pork chops these days!
