Chili-Peanut Pork Chops with Carrot-Cucumber Salad (TNT)

Hi...
I made this for dinner a few nights ago and it was just wonderful!! It was almost like a blackened steak right off the grill.....but surprise! These are pork chops but with the texture of steak. It was quite smoky in the house while I was cooking them, but well worth it!!
I served it with Summer Squash Medley (recipe will follow in the next post) and that also was wonderful. It was a beautiful and colorful plate. I only wished I would have taken a picture!
Enjoy!
