How Long to Cook Pork Chops on the Grill

Grilling pork chops can be thoughprovoking in that it is fairly easy to have them dry and get tough. Here is a guide on how long to cook the chops so you end up with juicy, tasty meat. If you prefer to use bone-in chops that is perfectly fine. I do not recommend that you eat pork that is not cooked all the way through so arm yourself with a good meat thermometer!

Here is what you need to do for delicious, well cooked juicy pork chops:

George Foreman Grill

4 boneless 1 inch thick pork chops
4 teaspoons curry powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
2 teaspoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
Vegetable Oil

Rinse and pat dry the pork chops. Using your hands coat the pork with oil, evenly on both sides.

In a small bowl mix all of the spices. Mix well. Rub the meat evenly, on both sides, with the spices.

Heat your grill to high, with the lid closed, for 15 minutes. Clean the cooking grates with a wire brush. Leave one burner on high and the rest on medium low. If you are using a charcoal grill pile the hot coals on one side and leave the other one without any coals.

Place the chops on the hot part of the grill, with the lid closed, for about 3 minutes per side. You want to sear them fast and create some grill marks. Move the meat to the cooler part of the grill and cook, flipping once, for about 7 more minutes or until a meat thermometer registers 130 degrees. Remove the pork from the grill onto a platter and cover loosely with foil. Let them rest for 5 minutes as they will continue to cook while they sit. Your meat should register 145 degrees after the resting time. Serve with your beloved side. We ate these with grilled corn on the cob and grilled pineapples.
