Munchie Monday at Lobster Gram

It has been an awesome Monday here in the Lobster Gram office. It's been a day of cooking and taste testing for all of us here, and that always puts us in a great mood. I took plenty of pictures to share with everyone, so here they are. To give you a quick run down of what we ate, here is the list.
Hope you enjoy! I know we sure did. Most of my coworkers are fighting off the food coma as I sit here typing this. It may be time to go start another pot of coffee for everyone.

Pictures from Drunken Grilled Pork Chops

Drunken Grilled Pork Chop Video

Good morning everyone! Its a rainy, dreary Monday here, but not even that can dampen my spirits too much this week. I am only working two days this week, and then I'm off for 5 days in a row. Yay vacation. Not really planning on doing too much. I'm turning 25 on Wednesday so my week and weekend will probably be one long celebration. Thankfully the weather is supposed to be nice by then so I'm sure I'll do a bit of grilling.
...and speaking of grilling...I have the new videos and recipes from my Drunken Grilled Pork Chop recipe this weekend. The marinade made the pork chops perfectly moist and tender. I'll definitely be making this one again. On the down side, I made the Purple Foodie's Garlic Oven Fry recipe again and unfortunately it ended up making my camera man ill. He suffers from diverticulitis and apparently he can't partake in freshly milled black pepper. Oh well, I didn't know and neither did he. The fries however still rocked something fierce. I'll just have to make sure he isn't eating with me when I use it.
While I'm getting the the pictures together from this adventure, here are the videos and recipes I used. Pictures are on the way and this time I swear I won't forget for a week!

Short video montage of the chops grilling away


* 2 Bone-In Pork Chops, about 1” thick
* 1/8 cup soy sauce
* 1 Tbsp. Brown Sugar
* 1 tsp. grated fresh ginger
* 1 cup of your favorite beer

Place ingredients in a bowl and whisk until combined. Place chops in zip lock bags and spoon marinade onto chops. Seal bags and massage marinade into the chops. Place bags in fridge and let sit for 4-24 hours turning bags as needed to distribute marinade. After chops are sufficiently marinaded, heat electric grill on high. Remove chops from bags and place directly on heated grill. Cook on high for 7 minutes on each side. Internal temperature of cooked pork chops should reach 170 degrees. Meat should be white all the way through.
