Chargrilled Pork Chops

I just love the flavor of chargrilled pork chops. This simple marinade enhances the flavors of the pork and caramelizes when you barbeque your chops. The type of pork chop you can choose from is the center cut, blade, sirloin or bacon chop. The center cut chop has the least amount of connective tissue and is very tender, but if over cooked can taste dry. The blade and the sirloin chop have a lot of connective tissue and work very well with marinades. The bacon chop you will see on many restaurant menus are thick, juicy and make a great grilling item. The bacon chop is the counter part of the veal chop


The marinade

1 bottle of non-separating Italian dressing
½ cup teriyaki sauce
¼ cup chopped parsley
½ cup chopped basil
1 large clove chopped garlic

pork chops

Preheat your grill on a medium heat
Prepare the marinade and let sit at room temperature for 1 hour.
Place the pork chops and the marinade in a baggie for an hour to marinate
Remove from the marinade and place on the char grill
Grill for 2-3 minutes and turn the pork chop slightly this will make the hatch mark on the meat, grill another 2-3 minutes and turn the chop
Let cook on final side until the internal temperature reaches 165°

This marinade is perfect for a pork chop grilled evening. Enjoy the flavors, the marinade adds as well as the moisture with any of the choices of pork chops. If you choose a boneless chop it will take a lot less time, but is prone to drying out quickly, the solution is to cook it quickly on a high heat to sear in the juices.
