Buttermilk Grilled Pork Chops with Corn Relish

I have been on a great new recipe streak lately! Yesterday I uploaded 13 new recipes to share with you and this has to be my new favorite! It is really easy once you measure out all of the marinate ingredients. I think I will make it for Mommasita and Pinkie when they come next week!

Buttermilk Grilled Pork Chops with Corn Relish
2 cups buttermilk
3 Tbsp brown sugar
4 Tbsp olive oil
3 Tbsp kosher salt
6 cloves of garlic
6 bay leaves
2 tsp hot sauce
12 black peppercorns
1 lemon
2 bone-in center cut pork loin chops
1 corn on the cob
2 Tbsp chopped fresh chives
4 cherry peppers, diced

Use a vegetable peeler to remove the zest from the lemon in wide strips.
Peel garlic cloves and crush them.
Mix together buttermilk, brown sugar, olive oil, garlic, bay leaves, hot sauce, peppercorns, lemon zest and juice from 1/2 the lemon.
Place marinate and pork chops into a bag and allow it to marinate for at least 4 hours or overnight.
Remove pork chops 30 minutes before grilling. Heat grill to medium high and brush grates with oil. Remove pork chops from marinate and allow access marinate to drip off. Grill for 7 minutes on each side.
Brush corn with olive and and then place it on the grill. Turn it every few minutes.
Remove pork chops and corn. I didn't take pictures of this...Cut corn off the cob and mix it with chopped chives, diced red peppers and juice of 1/2 a lemon. Season relish with salt. 
Serve pork chop with a hefty helping of corn relish.
