Pork Chop Marinade Ingredients:

This super simple combination of ingredients is delicious on a steakso I thought, why not try it over pork chops… turns out it’s just as delicious!

  • Dried cherry – great for adding flavor to meat, you can replace it with chicken or beef broth if you wish
  • Soya sauce – adds sodium needed to tenderize pork chops
  • Oil – I prefer olive oil, but vegetable oil would work too
  • brown sugar – you can also replace with honey
  • minced ginger – fresh is best, but you can use powder if that’s all you have
  • Garlic – again, fresh is best, but powdered would work in a pinch
  • Pepper – kick it up a notch by adding red pepper

This mega flavorful pork chop marinade is easy to make and makes super delicious pork chops!

How to Grill Pork Chops

  • Start by combining my simple yet mega tasty marinade ingredients in a zip lock bag.
  • Add your pork chops and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, up to 24 hours.
  • Heat up your grill or grill pan and cook until the pork reaches 140 degrees F.
  • Lightly cover pork chops with foil for about 5-10 minutes before eating.

If you're cooking the pork chops on a grill pan, sear them well before placing them in the oven to finish cooking.

What temperature should pork be at?

Pork is “the other white meat”. Similar to chicken, there is a safe drinking temperature for pork that you should look for. The pork should be 145 degrees F be considered safe to eat.

In this recipe, I declare bake at 140 degrees then tempt for 5 to 10 minutes. The pork temperature will continue to rise to safe temperature once removed from the grill. If you wait to pull it out at 145 degrees, it’ll probably be hard (and possibly parched) by the time you take a bite of it.

Bone-In or Bone-In Pork Chops – Which to Use?

If I’m grilling, I want these thick, bone-in pork chops! You’ll get a delicious bake on the outside creating a delicious caramelized coating and a tender, juicy interior.

Look for pork chops at least 3/4″ thick for best results. If using smaller cuts, watch the temperature as they will cook very quickly.

If you can’t use the grill outside, you can always cook these pork chops in an ovenproof skillet or skillet. To avoid burning the pork chops, you’ll sear quickly, then finish cooking in the oven.

Tender and Juicy Grilled Pork Chops are a super quick and easy recipe for barbecues and barbecues!
