3 The Cook

  • When you’re at temp, put cooking oil on a folded paper towel. Grab the oiled paper towel with long-handled tongs and oil the grate thoroughly.

  • Place your pork chops onto the grate. Cook for 2–3 minutes, then flip your pork chops over and brush with maple syrup. Cook for another 2–3 minutes until chops are charred at the edges and cooked through.

  • Flip one more time, brush the other side of your pork chops with maple syrup and cook for 1 minute more. When your pork chops reach an internal temperature of 145ºF, remove it from the grill and allow it to rest for 3 minutes before serving hot.

For safe meat preparation, reference the USDA website.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy its crazy This recipe is seriously so easy, and if you're into sweet and savory then its for you. And of course who doesn't like ranch? And if you don't that's ok because you van use your own seasoning blend.
