Serve grilled pork chops with corn on the cob and garlic rosemary potatoes. If we are grilling for Sunday dinner with the family, we also like to add a side of homemade yeast rolls.

How to Store and Reheat:

Wrap pork chops in foil or plastic wrap and refrigerate up to 4 days.

To quickly reheat, slice pork chops and cook in a skillet with a bit of olive oil or butter over medium heat. Stir often, cooking until heated through.

How to Keep Pork Chops from Drying Out:

Allow pork to come  to room temperature before grilling. 

Grill at a lower temperature. We like to grill our pork chops from 300° to 350°. Lower and slower will result in juicy pork chops. 

Pork chops cook quickly and the best way to make juicy grilled pork chops is to use a digital thermometer. Pork is cooked through at 145°, so remove your pork chops from the grill at about 140°- 145°. Cooking longer will result in dryer, tougher pork chops. 

How Long To Grill Boneless Pork Chops:

Depending on the thickness of your pork chops is how long it will take to cook them. These pork  chops were about 3/4 inch thick and they cooked in about 15 minutes. Using a digital thermometer is a more accurate guide than going by the total cooking time.

    1. Hi Bev,
      You can bake these pork chops. Place on a sheet pan and bake at 375°for 15-20 minutes, until pork chops reach 145° internal temperature. Cooking time will depend on how thick your pork chops are.

  1. Garlic and onion pork chops are cooked with grilling, and I prefer cooking of grilling recipes with pure ghee because ghee offers higher smoke point. I have used ghee instead of olive oil. Ghee vs olive oil shows that ghee is a better option for this chop recipes. I love ghee cooking.
    I prefer using Milkio grass-fed ghee for all my recipes.

  2. Absolutely delicious and so tender was our pork chops. The rub is amazing. It’s just my husband and I and I made the whole rub recipe. I read in the description it can be used on chicken etc.
