My dad and stepmom are taking a big step in their lives and selling their home in San Diego and moving to Tuscon. They have both lived in SD since they were small children. Needless to say, I am feeling a little nostalgic and thought I would cook up my dad’s pork chop dinner that I have eaten countless times.
Dad would grill on a charcoal brazier in the backyard. While he waited for the coals to ash over, he would season the pork chops with garlic salt, pepper, oregano and a pinch of nutmeg (his secret ingredient). I have made a few modifications to his seasoning while keeping the essential flavor profile. This is a great all-purpose rub to keep in your pantry for seasoning not only pork, but also, beef, chicken, and veg.
Here’s to you Dad! Safe travels….
