Camp Recipes – The Campfire Gourmet: Apricot-Glazed Pork Chops

February 2, 2012 in Main Dishes by amylaree

We first made this camp recipe when we did the Trails at Stone Door in the South Cumberland Rec Area.  After hiking 10 miles (including a very exhausting climb back up the ridge), these pork chops and veggies were the perfect reward for a long day’s hike.

This recipe serves one person… so unless you want to share, we suggest you double up.
