Recipe Rants: Brown sugar-glazed pork with grilled corn

I have to say that my son, Tyler and I are getting pretty good in the kitchen. Over the last couple weeks he and I have picked out a few different recipes from the book Real Simple: Dinner Tonight. Done!

Today we made brown sugar glazed pork with grilled corn on the new grill.

This quick recipe takes less than an hour from fridge to plate.


1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce

4 tablespoons brown sugar

1 pork loin (about 1 1/2 pounds)

Kosher salt and pepper

4 ears corn, shucked

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

2 scallions, sliced


  • Heat grill to medium-high. In a small bowl, mix together Worcestershire sauce and brown sugar.
  • Season the pork with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Grill, turning often, until the internal temperature registers 145 degrees, 20 to 25 minutes, brushing with the brown sugar glaze during the last five minutes of cooking. Let rest for at least five minutes before slicing.
  • Meanwhile, grill the corn, turning occasionally, until tender and slightly charred, 6 to 8 minutes. Cut the kernels off the cobs into a medium bowl and toss with butter, scallions, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Serve the pork.

This meal turned out great! The sweetness of the brown sugar and the tartness of the Worcestershire was a very nice compliment to the pork.

This quick and easy meal is great for a mid-summer’s night and hearty enough for an active family.
