White Miso Marinated Grilled Pork Chops

We love to entertain friends and family! My favorite evenings are the ones I spend with our company, not cooking in the kitchen the entire time. So, I like to do most of the meal prep ahead, which leaves me free to join the party. 

For a twist on the classic grilled pork chop, I whisked together a white miso marinade, topped the chops with shiitake mushrooms (sautéed in butter or olive oil with a touch of S & P), and paired with crisp balsamic marinated peaches and greens. The peaches brought a light sweetness to the meal and the miso marinade added a delicious layer of flavor. Enjoy this simple scrumptious summer meal!
