Perfect the art of grilling juicy, tender pork chops



Published: Wed, May 7, 2014 @ 12:00 a.m.

Family Features

A recent survey by the Heart, Patio and Barbecue Association found that seven out of 10 home grillers consider themselves to be “better than average” at grilling.

With warmer weather here, there’s no better time to put your skills to the test and perfect the art of pork chops on the grill.

An incredibly flavorful, juicy and tender choice, pork chops — with cuts like Porterhouse, Ribeye and New York — are perfect for casual backyard entertaining and easy family dinners alike.

Tips for Tender Chops

Mastering grilled pork chops is easy no matter your skill on the grill.

It’s all about selecting the right recipe, preparing the grill correctly and grilling your pork chops like a steak using a digital thermometer to ensure the proper range of doneness - between 145 degrees (medium rare), followed by a three-minute rest and 160 degrees (medium). To prep your grill:

Arrange hot coals evenly on the fire grate of the grill or use all gas burners on medium-hot heat.

Place pork directly above the heat source.

Follow suggested cooking times — 3/4 inch chops should be cooked for 8-9 minutes and 11/2 inch chops for 12-16 minutes — turning once during cooking

For a deliciously sweet and spicy recipe like Sweet Fire Pork Chops, seasoned with hot chipotle chile, zesty orange, garlic and sweet honey — choose 3/4-inch Porterhouse (bone-in loin) chops to create your new favorite masterpiece.

For a complete meal, serve them with a side of mashed sweet potatoes and sauteed green beans.

“Sweet Fire” Porterhouse Pork Chops

Servings: 4

4 Porterhouse (bone-in loin) pork chops, about 3/4-inch thick

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 1/2 teaspoons ground chipotle chile

1 1/2 teaspoons coarse salt

Grated zest of 1 large orange

2 teaspoons garlic, minced

1/3 cup honey

In a small bowl, stir oil, ground chipotle, salt, orange zest and garlic together into a paste. Using a rubber spatula, spread chipotle mixture over both sides of pork. Let stand for 15 to 30 minutes.

Prepare a medium-hot fire in grill. Place chops on grill and close lid. Grill over direct heat, turning once, about 4-5 minutes per side, until the internal temperature of the pork on a meat thermometer measures between 145 degrees (medium rare) and 160 degrees (medium). During the last 2 minutes, brush chops on both sides with honey. Remove from grill and let rest for 3 minutes.
