Move over boring side dishes! Grilled Brussels Sprouts are here to steal the show this summer. Brussels sprouts can sometimes get a bad rap but it’s only because most people don’t know how to cook them properly. Grilling or roasting them caramelizes their natural sugars yielding […]
If you’ve ever eaten a tough and dry pork chop from the grill then you’ll really value this next recipe! We’ve got the Best Grilled Pork Chop Marinade right here folks and it’s a keeper. This excellent marinade grills up juicy, flavorful pork chops every time. My hubby is still raving about them over a week later. There are two keys to pulling off this recipe successfully. First it’s essential to use thick cut pork chops or chops that are at least 1 inch thick. And secondly you’ll want to keep these babies bathing in that marinade for as long as you can. The results are unbelievable!
Here’s all you’ll need: Worcestershire sauce, fresh parsley, balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, olive oil, minced garlic, black pepper, cayenne pepper, and pork chops.
I love this marinade because it combines simple ingredients that I normally already have on hand. Combine the Worcestershire sauce, fresh parsley, balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, olive oil, minced garlic, black pepper and cayenne pepper in a shallow dish. My 1.8 qt square glass pyrex is the perfect size to hold 4 pork chops plus the marinade and it even has it’s own lid. Perfect!
Next place the pork chops in the marinade, cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight. Now you know I totally understand if you’ve only got two hours til you need to get dinner on the table, but just promise me that at least once in your life you’ll try the full 8 hours! Patience my friends.
Grill pork chops, covered on a preheated grill over medium heat. We’re shooting for 10-15 on each side or until a meat thermometer reaches 145 degrees. Don’t forget to flip!
To baste or not to baste? Everyone’s got their own personal preference but we’re a basting family over here. Use a grill-safe silicone basting brush or a bulb baster to cover the grilled pork chops with our tasty marinade. Basting helps to keep the meat moist and also adds flavor.
Remove from the grill and let the meat stand for 5 minutes before serving. I know! You’re like, really?!? I gotta wait? But during cooking the juices run up to the surface. By letting meat stand, the juices flow back down into the meat and the meat is juicier and not dried out. You can thank me later! Now dig in already!!! Pair Grilled Pork Chops with our Cheesy Grilled Potatoes or Foil Packet Italian Veggies and you’ve got yourself a meal.
