[break] Grilled Pork

It just couldn’t be a 4th of July without some sort of grilled meat and nothing says delicious like grilled pork. Try one of Michael Symon’s favorite grilled recipes for your summer holiday get together.

Grilled Rack of Pork

1 6 Lb center cut rack of pork - not frenched
Kosher salt
1/4 Cup coriander (toasted and ground)
3 Tablespoon sugar
3 Tablespoon olive oil

Step 1: A day before cooking, season the pork liberally with salt, sugar, and coriander then cover, and refrigerate. Remove the pork from the refrigerator at least 30 minutes before cooking it. Build a hot fire in an outdoor grill.

Step 2: When the coals are ready, spread them over half of the grill so that one side of the grill will be cooler. If using gas, set one side of the grill to high and one side to medium low heat.

Step 3: Brush the pork with 3 tablespoons olive oil. Grill the pork directly over the hot coals, turning to sear on all sides, about 15 minutes. Move the pork to the cooler side of the grill, cover the grill, and cook the pork until it reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees F, about 45 minutes. Remove the pork to a cutting board and let rest for 15 minutes.

Step 4: Slice the pork into chops, arrange the pieces on a board or platter. Serve alongside Bushes Baked Beans Sweet Mesquite Grillin' Beans.
