Caramelized Cajun Pork Chops

Prep time 10 mins
Grill time 8 mins
Yield Makes 4 servings
Pounding the pork chops trims the time on the grill and ensures even cooking.


  • 4 (1/2-inch-thick) boneless pork loin chops
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Cajun seasoning
  • Salt to taste

How to Make It

  1. Preheat grill to 350° to 400° (medium-high) heat. Place pork chops between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap; flatten to 1/2-inch thickness using a rolling pin or flat side of a meat mallet.

  2. Stir together brown sugar and Cajun seasoning; rub mixture over pork chops. Grill pork chops, covered with grill lid, 4 minutes on each side or until done. Season with salt to taste.
