Marinated Pork Chops

Once marinated, these grilled pork chops turn out moist and full of flavor in only 5-6 minutes on the BBQ.  My husband and I love these pork chops. I alter the marinade from time to time, but the basic easy prep and grill are the same.

  • 5 -6 rib pork chops (about 1/2 inch thick)
  • salt and pepper
  • fresh chopped rosemary for garnish


  • 2 tablespoon oil
  • 2 tablespoon soy sauce (I use light)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 tablespoon maple syrup (or honey)
  • 2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoon minced garlic (2 cloves)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped rosemary (or 1 tsp dried)


  • MARINATE CHOPS: Place marinade ingredients in large ziploc sealed bag. Massage well to combine. Add pork chops, seal bag and massage to distribute marinade over chops evenly. Let sit on counter for an hour or refrigerate for 3-24 hours.
  • HEAT GRILL: Clean and spray oil on grill. Heat to medium high (400-425F).
  • GRILL PORK CHOPS: Remove chops from marinade. Pat dry with paper towel. Spray with oil and sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. Grill chops for 2-3 minutes per side depending on thickness. An instant thermometer should read 140F (temp will rise further when chops are resting). Remove from grill. Let chops rest 10 minutes, loosely covered, to lock in juices. Garnish with additional chopped rosemary if desired. Serve with apple sauce or fruit chutney.
