A quick and easy weeknight dinner recipe, these smoky grilled pork chops are ready in just 15 minutes!
Grilling season is one of my favorite times of year because it makes healthy cooking so dang easy!
Boneless grilled pork chops is one of our go-to dinner recipes because they are such an affordable, lean source of protein.
The key with any lean cut of meat is to add as much flavor with a spice rub or marinade. For these juicy grilled pork chops I create a simple spice rub made with smoked paprika, cumin, garlic powder and brown sugar.
As the pork grills, the sugar caramelizes created a sweet crust that pairs perfectly with the smoky, salty, spicy flavors of the rub.
Serve with grilled veggies and dinner is done. Leftovers taste delicious over a salad or in a sandwich.
Your fork is waiting.
Smoky Grilled Pork Chops
- Pre-heat grill over high heat.
- In a small bowl, combine the spice rub: smoked paprika through cayenne. Rub mixture onto both sides of the pork chops.
- Grill pork for 7-9 minutes per side, turning once, or until internal temperature reaches 140 degrees or higher. Total cooking time will vary based on thickness of chops.
- Let chops rest at least 5 minutes before serving.
