Cajun Marinated and Bacon Wrapped Pork Chops

     Pork chops are always a favorite at my house. It doesn't matter if they are baked, stuffed or smoked, this is one popular dish. However, the family's absolute favorite is a bacon wrapped boneless prime filet.
    This is not to be confused with the beef filet. These are not the same beast and the only comparison is that they are bacon wrapped and boneless. You can buy a "chef's prime filet" of pork in the grocery store, but it's easily made at home. Wrap a thick-cut boneless pork chop in bacon and there you go - easy as can be. Let the chops rest in Cajun marinade and you have a tender piece of meat that's full of flavor and so easy to make.

Pour a slight bit of the marinade in the bottom of a plastic container with a lid. Place chops in dish and pour sauce over top of meat to coat well. Sprinkle with extra pepper.
