For the chops...
  1. Butterfly the pork chops and pound to ¼" ish thickness, then place in zip top bag with marinade for 1-2 hours.
  2. Then layer-in thin sliced ham & Swiss cheese with a schmeer of mayo & Dijon, topped with a few thin sliced dill pickles.
  3. Fold the butterflied chop in half and grill over medium heat until done, 3-4 minutes per side..
Note: done is a little tricky since the chops are stuffed. Individually you must decide your level of doneness. We recommend an instant read meat thermometer and don't forget to rest all meat for about 10 minutes = 5 more degrees of doneness.
