Yield Makes 4 servings
Agrodolce (agro: sour; dolce: sweet), a traditional Italian sweet-and-sour sauce made with vinegar and sugar (or sweet ingredients such as fresh peaches and raisins), adds fresh summer flavor to the granddaddy of all pork chops. Thick-cut pork porterhouse includes a juicy portion of the tenderloin on one side and a large cut of the loin on the other.

Ingredients

  • 4 (1 1/2-inch-thick) pork porterhouse chops (about 2 1/2 lb.)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • Peach Agrodolce

How to Make It

  1. Let pork stand at room temperature 30 minutes. Light one side of grill, heating to 350° to 400° (medium-high) heat; leave other side unlit. Brush pork with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

  2. Grill pork over lit side of grill, covered with grill lid, 4 minutes on each side; transfer pork to unlit side, and grill, covered with grill lid, 10 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer registers 150°. Let stand 5 minutes. Arrange pork on a serving platter, and top with Peach Agrodolce.
