Day One-Hundred Seventeen - Grilled Pork Chops with Spice Paste (5.30.14)


  • 4 (3 lbs total) bone-in pork loin chops
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 Tbsp vegetable oil, plus more for grates
  • 2 Tbsp light brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp coarse salt
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp ground pepper
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  1. In a bowl, mix together garlic, oil, sugar, salt, paprika, pepper and cayenne until a paste forms. Coat pork chops with paste and wrap in plastic. Refrigerate 1 hour (or up to 3).
  2. Heat grill to medium-high; clean and lightly oil hot grates. Grill pork, covered, 5 minutes per side for medium. Let rest 5 minutes before serving.

Potter: These were hands-down the best pork chops I have ever had. They came out super juicy and the flavors were amazing. It had just a hint of heat and sweet but was definitely a savory dish. You should definitely give these a try especially considering how quick and easy they are to make.

Katie: These pork chops were amazing. They were the best at home chops I've had - the flavors were great and the pork remained juicy! I've had comparable/slightly better in a higher end restaurant but I do feel these gave that dish of chops a run for it's money. I definitely plan on enjoying these again and highly recommend to others! :)
