  • Slice pork chops and reheat in a skillet with about a tablespoon of olive oil, stirring to heat through, about 5- 8 minutes.

Tips for Juicy Pork Chops:

The main reason pork chops are dry is due to being over cooked. The digital thermometer is your best friend for knowing exactly when the pork chops are cooked through. Pork chops are cooked through at 145°. 

We like to cook over a medium-low fire and that seems to help keep the pork chops tender and juicy.

  • Grilled Corn on the Cob goes with just about any meal on the grill and the garlic butter takes this recipe to over the top delicious.
  • During the summer we have so much zucchini and grilled zucchini is always a hit, plus it’s beyond simple to make!
  • Garlic Butter Baked Potatoes are another favorite that is a great addition to any dinner on the grill. Even better than cooking them in the oven and no heating up the house.
