Texas Two-Step Pork Chops


by: GirlCocoa

Back in the fifteenth century, Indians in the Caribbean used the word barbocoa for a frame of sticks that held meat and fish over a wood-burning fire. When British colonists got a taste, they devoured this alternative to their usual fare of meat boiled in iron pots, and they improved on it by bringing domesticated pigs to the party. The term evolved into barbecue. Of course, many of those British colonists became America’s first citizens.
