An instant pickle, a speedy marinade and a sauce that's ready in five minutes make these barbecued pork chops ideal for entertaining with ease. We heart harissa for quickly imparting flavour to the meat, while lemon tenderizes in the time it takes to warm up that grill. With red onions, golden tones of creamed corn and cheese curds, this feast for the eyes will be the focus of the night.

Ingredients

Pickled Onion

Pork Chops

Creamed Corn

Preparation

Pickled Onion

  1. In a bowl, mix together all of the ingredients. Cover with plastic wrap, then cook in the microwave for 1 minute. Let marinate at room temperature until ready to serve.

Pork Chops

  1. In a glass dish, mix the lemon juice, oil and harissa. Add the pork and turn the coat. Season with salt and pepper. Let marinate for 15 minutes.
  2. Preheat the grill, setting the burners to medium-high. Oil the grate.
  3. Grill the pork chops for 3 to 4 minutes per side or until the desired doneness. Let rest on a platter for 5 minutes.

Creamed Corn

  1. Meanwhile, in a non-stick skillet, soften the shallot in the butter. Add the corn and cream. Bring to a boil and let simmer for 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add the chives.
  2. Top the pork chops with the creamed corn. Garnish with the pickled onion and cheese curds.

Note

Prepare the marinated onions two or three days ahead of time -- they'll store well in a Mason-style jar in the fridge. If using frozen corn, defrost in the microwave, then drain.
