I ordered these special cut Thick Pork Chops from my neighborhood Fairway Food Store, because they were on sale. The new Market Manager is always so nice in providing great customer service. Thick cut Pork Chops are one of my husbands favorite food items. Seasoning & marinating them the way I did, & cooking them over charcoal really added lots of flavor. I even ate a WHOLE Pork Chop. I never eat a whole chop, especially when they are thick cut, but the flavors of these were so well balanced I just could not help but eat the whole one.
Give this easy recipe a try, I am sure you will love it.
1Combine hickory Spice and steak seasoning in a small bowl and sprinkle evenly over both sides of each chop. Then add a few drops of the garlic juice on each side and message into each chops. These are the main spices used to season the chops.
2Allow to sit and marinate for about 30 minutes to allow flavors to penetrate the chops. Prep time includes 30 minutes of marinating the chops. NOTE ALTHOUGH I COOKED THESE ON THE OUTDOOR GRILL, THEY CAN ALSO BE COOKED INSIDE. See my recipe for Grilled Pork Chops
3Prepare Grill according to manufacturers directions for INDIRECT COOKING. Using a drip pan on opposite side of charcoal. NOTE: if YOU ADD WATER OR SOME OTHER LIQUID TO THE DRIP PAN, WILL HELP TO KEEP THE PORK CHOPS NICE & MOIST.
4Once the charcoals are hot, add pork chops over the grill pan and opposite charcoal. Cook for about 45 minutes, turning if needed, or until chops reach an internal temperature of about 155 degrees F. Temp will continue to rise once removed from grill an additional 10 degrees or so. Allow to sit for about 10 minutes to allow the juices to redistribute. Serve with your favorite sides.
