How Do I Make Pork Chops on the Grill?
Before grilling your pork chops, you’ll want to make a marinade. This delicious marinade consists of olive oil, dijon mustard, soy sauce, lemon zest, brown sugar, thyme, parsley, salt, pepper, and garlic. Once you have all of your ingredients together, add the marinade into a large bowl and then add the pork chops into the marinade. Let the pork chops marinate in the refrigerator for at least an hour–you can leave them in for longer if you like (up to 8 hours).
Now it’s time to preheat the grill. Make sure the grill is on medium heat and place the pork chops on the grill. You’ll want to grill the pork chops until they are golden brown and cooked thoroughly. Cook them until they reach an internal temperature of 145 degrees Fahrenheit which is about 6 – 8 minutes on each side. Once they’re done, do not cut into them immediately. Take them off the grill and let them sit for 5 minutes. This will help retain the juices, resulting in delicious and flavorful chops. Add some parsley and your pork chops are ready to enjoy.
