When grilling pork chops, if you only flip them once and pull them from the grill when they reach 145 F degrees, you’ll have perfectly juicy grilled pork chops every time.
Pork chops are one of the easiest weeknight proteins to cook. All they need is a quick rub down with flavor. I recommend olive oil, soy sauce, and a garlic and herb seasoning.
You could also use Worcestershire sauce. Either way, your goal is to add a bit of umami and caramel color to the chops.
A garlic and herb seasoning gives you a classic balance of salt and herbs. You can use this juicy grilled pork chops technique with other rubs, too.
Try a traditional Montreal seasoning or go bold with a brown sugar and bourbon rub or even a chipotle and roasted garlic seasoning.
Perfectly Juicy Grilled Pork Chops
- 4 pork chops
- 2 tsp olive oil
- 2 tsp soy sauce
- 2 tsp McCormick® Grill Mates® Roasted Garlic & Herb Seasoning
Rub both sides of the pork chops with olive oil and soy sauce. Sprinkle liberally with garlic and herb seasoning.
Heat the grill to 400-450 F degrees.
Place the chops on the grill. Grill for 7 minutes. Flip and grill for another 5-7 minutes to desired wellness (USDA recommends 145 F degrees).
Remove to a plate or pan. Cover with foil and let rest for 3 minutes.
You can use any type of barbecue seasoning to change the flavor profile.
