Pork chops are a hearty, filling and impressive main course. It can look intimidating – you don’t want to ruin such a meaty masterpiece – but they really are easy to grill. In fact, grilling a juicy, flavor-packed chop is as easy as the marinade you soak it in.
First, you will want to marinate the chop. You can marinate it for 20 minutes or overnight – length is up to you. Keep in mind that if you marinate it overnight, the chop will have even more flavor incorporated into the meat.
For the marinade, you can be creative or you can be minimalistic. For this video, we used just two basic ingredients – Italian dressing and Worcheshire sauce. Put the chops in the bag, and fill it with the marinade. Then chill.
When you are ready to grill, put the chop over the hot flame so you get a nice, consistent temperature. Let the chops sit on the med-hot grill for about 4-5 minutes, flip and keep an eye on the temp.
For the best chops, cook them to 145 degrees F, testing with a meat thermometer. This will result in tender, juicy pork that is safe to eat with a blush of pink. They will turn out to be juicy, smoke-kissed cuts of meat that you will want to make again and again.
