Camp Recipes: Honey Mint Pork Chops


  • 1 Pork Chop, thin cut
  • Potato (1 medium sized or 2 small new potatoes, sliced 1/4")
  • Pepper (to taste)
  • Salt (to taste)
  • 1 - 2 teaspoons Minced Garlic
  • 2 teaspoons Honey
  • 1 teaspoon fresh mint, chopped (or 1/4 teaspoon dried mint, crushed)


  1. Make large double layer square of foil. Spray with pam or non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Place sliced potatoes in a thin layer to make a base for pork chop. Season with salt, pepper and garlic.
  3. Place pork chop on top of potatoes. Season pork chop with remaining garlic, salt, pepper and mint.
  4. Drizzle honey on seasoned chop.
  5. Add another layer of potatoes on top of pork chop.
  6. Wrap and seal the aluminum. Leave room in the packet to allow air to flow through as it cooks.
  7. Cook on coals for 20 minutes. Flip about half-way through.
  8. Open with caution - there will be plenty of steam. Enjoy.
