You don’t have to fire up the grill to enjoy a taste of barbecue. This pork chop dinner makes use of the broiler to get those summertime flavors on the table anytime you want them. Punch up store-bought barbecue sauce with honey mustard, brighten roasted corn with a slather of herby butter, and jazz up sweet potato fries with a sprinkling of grated Parmesan.
