Since I know that Labor Day's gatherings will be all about long-weekend classics like hamburgers, hot dogs, and ribs, I'm going against the mainstream grilling grain today with a straightforward pork recipe that definitely won't be on the menu manaña.
In less time than it takes to watch the evening news, I'll be eating alfresco with this one-platter meal, which calls for just six commonplace ingredients. It'll be exactly the dining departure that I need so I can fully appreciate tomorrow's barbecue spread! See the ultrasimple recipe when you read more. 4 boneless pork chops (each 6 ounces and about 3/4 inch thick) Serves 4.
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
Halved or quartered cherry tomatoes
