Recipe from Cooking Light

Punch up the flavor of grilled pork chops with an easy spice rub. Serve with simple sides for a menu ready in less than 30 minutes.

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 (4-ounce) center-cut pork loin chops
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/4 cup barbecue sauce

Preparation

  1. Prepare grill.
  2. Combine first 7 ingredients in a small bowl. Rub pork with spice mixture; let stand 10 minutes.
  3. Place pork on grill rack coated with cooking spray. Grill 4 minutes. Turn pork; grill 2 minutes. Brush each chop with 1 tablespoon sauce, and grill 2 minutes or until desired degree of doneness.

Notes

An easy rub flavors these grilled chops. Let them stand about 10 minutes before grilling, allowing the meat to absorb the flavorful spice rub.
