This is one of my husbands favorite meat items, and serving them this thick is the way he prefers to have them. There is a restaurant near us in the neighboring state of Indiana, that serves their pork chops this thick, and we had them cater our Family Reunion one year, and ever since then my husband has been hooked on Grilled Pork Chops. So this is my version of the Hog Haven Restaurants Grilled Pork Chops. My husband never complains.
1Combine all spices in a small bowl,and stir to mix. Then rub oil on both sides of the pork chops, and coat evenly with the spice mixture. Place in a large zip lock bag, and allow to marinate in fridge for at least 45 minutes to an hour.
2Remove pork chops from fridge, and allow to come to room temperature. Brush & Preheat griddle with oil or non stick cooking spray till hot but not smoking. Then carefully place pork chops on grill or grill skillet and allow to cook about 5 or 6 minutes per side. Rotate one quarter turn about half way through cooking each side to create grill marks if desired.
3After pork chops have reached an internal temperature of about 155 degrees with thermometer, remove to platter and cover with foil and allow to sit for 8 to 10 minutes to redistribute juices. Serve with your favorite side items.
