A nice thick-cut pork chip is one of the top pieces of meat to grill. For some grill masters, it can be a little bit of a challenge to grill a tender and juicy pork chop since pork has the tendency to dry out fast if you cook it a little too long.
I have found and am still looking for more grilled pork chop recipes to answer the questions like:
- How do you cook a pork chop on the grill
- How long does it take to cook pork chops on the grill
- What is a good marinade for pork chops
- What kind of seasoning to put on a pork chop
And many more questions.
One tip I have learned that improved my grilling is the use of a handheld digital thermometer. Under of in many cases overcooking is one of the most made mistakes in grilling thinner pieces of meat like pork chops. You can read our pocket thermometer reviews here at this link.
Best grilled pork chop Recipes
Marinade the chops in the morning with:
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup soy sauce
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 3 tablespoons lemon pepper
- 3 teaspoons fresh crushed garlic
This should be enough for 6 pork chops.
Preheat the grill to medium heat and I always oil the grill grate for some nice grill marks.
Let the pork chops drip off the marinade and grill them for 5 to 6 minutes on each side till the inside is no longer pink.
I advise using an instant-read handheld thermometer to check the internal temperature. It should read 165 degrees.
