Grilled Pork Chops are a favorite in my house, especially these pork chops with an herbed rub. They go fantastic with grilled vegetables, corn or even grilled potatoes.

When grilling pork chops you will want to grill them for 7-8 minutes, flipping once. After the pork chops are done being grilled, let them rest for 3-5 minutes.

Grilled Pork Chops with Herb-Rub

Grilling pork chops is an entirely different experience than grilling red meat. While steaks can be charred on the outside and a delicious shade of pink or red inside, pork needs to be more uniformly cooked throughout. Therefore, use a medium direct heat while grilling pork so the inside cooks evenly with the outside.

Cooking Pork Chops on the Grill

Keep in mind when assembling the ingredients for the herb rub that it is more of a template than a hard-and-fast rule. When creating the rub, use more or less of each spice you enjoy.
