how to pick the best pork chops:

Not all pork chops are the same, so it’s important to select pork chops that will give you the most meat and moisture, when picking them out at the grocery store.

  • Choose pork chops with a pinkish- red color and some marbling in them. There are also different cuts of pork chops, and the best pork chops for grilling have marbling in them.
  • Avoid pork chops with a dark colored bone, or dark spots on the fat. These will have a bitter taste, and may be harmful to eat.
  • The package may say that pork chops will be good for a few weeks, but it’s best to cook and use them within three days of purchasing them, to ensure a rich flavor.
  • After three days, we recommend freezing them, where they will keep nicely for about four to six months.

low and slow:

When grilling your pork chops, it is important to remember that they grill quicker than most other meats. Pork chops can also be a little more dry.

It’s important to carefully watch them as you grill them, to ensure they are not overcooking and drying. Here are some grilling tips for pork chops:

  • Cook them on low, for a longer amount of time. This will help the juices soak into the meat, and not cook out quickly. It will also help avoid the meat from cooking fast on the outside, but not on the inside, leaving you with burnt pork chops.
  • Let your pork chops marinade for a while, and even make a little extra sauce to put on the side, to baste them as they cook. They taste best when the marinate overnight.
  • Don’t cut into the pork chops as they are cooking. If you do, make a small incision in the very center to ensure that the meat is done cooking, or a thermometer to see that it has reached the temperature of 145 degrees.
  • Each pork chop should be grilled for about 3-5 minutes on each side. You will also want to be sure your grill is close, to trap the heat, and let it cook fully.

  1. The best way to prepare pork chops to keep them from drying out is either grilling them. Or you take a cast iron skillet. Heat it to medium high with some oil. Let the pork chop sear 1-2 min each side so they have a nice crust. Then throw them in a 350F oven for 5 min on each side. Perfect chops every time. :)
  2. I broil my pork chops...electric oven. Broil on high, lower rack to start for 6 minutes on each side then move to top rack and 3 minutes on each side. Make a foil snake to hold oven door slightly open. Perfect every time. I adapted Alton Browns broiler steak recipe. I am sure it would work with this recipe. These sound delicious. Going to try them tonight!
    • Hi Linda, Diced onions or onion powder will work just fine! You are like us, seems like I only have green onions on hand when I know I'll need them in a recipe. But I always have a yellow onion or onion powder! You will be just fine. Just adds a little flavor!
