Let’s fire up the grill and make these Grilled Pork Chops with Simple Bean Salad:
Our pigs are raised on small Nordic family farms and monitored with strict attention to their living conditions and diet. This gives a meat that is of high consistent quality, texture and taste, as well as being extremely high in Omega-3’s. i.e. Healthy fats that are good for your heart!

This dish is perfect for all your family gatherings because it’s quick, easy, and the bean salad is served at room temperature. No need to worry about keeping the salad cool or warm.
Here’s the recipe:

Grilled Pork Chops
● 560 grams Taste of Scan ’s Pork Ribeye Steak
● Oil, Salt and Pepper to taste

Simple Bean Salad
● 1 tablespoon olive oil
● 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
● 2 (425 grams) cans white beans, drained, rinsed, and patted dry
● 2 oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
● 4 tablespoons sliced green olives
● 2 tablespoons finely sliced green onions, green part only
● 1 tablespoon minced fresh flat-leaf parsley
● salt and pepper, to taste

For Grilled Pork Chops
Brush pork ribeye with oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper on both sides. Set aside for 15-30mins till pork is at room temperature. Prepare your grill for grilling during this time.

Place pork ribeye on the grill over medium heat until the internal temperature reaches 65 degrees Celsius (approx 145 degrees Fahrenheit) followed by a 3-minute rest time. This is usually a bout 3 mins per side.

For Simple Bean Salad
Whisk together olive oil and lemon juice, then add in the beans, sun-dried tomatoes, green olives, green onion, and parsley to bowl and toss to coat well. Taste your dish and add salt and pepper as needed. Set aside until ready to serve.

A unique feature of Taste of Scan ’s delicious grilled pork, is that our pigs are flower-fed. Meaning we add Brassica napus seed (bright yellow flowers commonly seen in Nordic countries, that produces oil-rich seeds- this is one of nature’s best sources of Omega-3!) to the feed of our pigs. This ensures that our tasty, flower-fed pork contains four times more Omega 3’s when compared to conventional pork. And it can be cooked any way you like since it’s loaded with high-quality fat, the meat is quick to prepare. Since it stays juicy and tender longer, cooking time is less critical as well.
