Grilled Pork Chops
People seem to really shy away from making pork chops because they think they are dry and tough.
I’m urging you guys to get over that thought!
The keep to making sure they are juicy and delicious is cooking them to the right temperature. Also, having your grill at a steady temperature is needed.
Don’t forget to let them rest for 5-10 minutes after pulling them off the grill.
How do you keep pork chops moist on the grill?
Pork is definitely a protein that you get what you pay for – good meat will result in better flavor when it comes to mealtime!
Treat pork like you treat steak:
- remove the pork from the packaging and pat dry, then season!
- sear the chops well on each side
- do not overcook – so important!
- allow the chops to rest 5-10 minutes before serving!
When is pork done?
The USDA recommends cooking pork steaks and chops to a minimum of 145 degrees. So is it safe to eat pork at 145? Yes! Remove it from the grill and allow it to rest at least 3 minutes covered with foil to keep it warm, serve and enjoy!!
Is it OK to cook pork medium rare?
Yes – medium rare for a pork chop is 145 degrees. Medium would be 160 degrees and slightly pink in the middle.

How Long to Grill Boneless Pork Chops

This is medium rare and will keep your pork chops nice and juicy. If you see a little pink in the middle that is absolutely fine!
How to Grill Boneless Pork Chops

I know you’re thinking…. but Julie, is it really necessary to allow the grilled pork chops to rest before serving? Yes!! If you want tender, juicy chops allow them to rest covered in foil! Allowing the meat to rest will let the fibers of the meat relax.
This results in that juicy, tender pork chop you’re hungry for!
