4 servings (serving size: 1 pork chop)

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.

How to Make It

Step 1

Prepare grill.

Step 2

Combine first 7 ingredients in a small bowl. Rub pork with spice mixture; let stand 10 minutes.

Step 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.

Chef's 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.

Great with a little tweak

I added 1 Tsp of Mustard Powder and they were delicious. No BBQ sauce needed.On high, grill 2 min rotate 90 degrees, cook 2 min, flip & cook 2 min, rotate 90 degrees and cook 2 min. Turn down to low and cook until 145 degree. I personally like to take off the grill about 140-142 degrees and let them rest as they will continue to cook while resting.

Quick and easy

Good basic recipe here but next time I'll use bone-in chops which we feel has more flavor.

This rub is so quick and easy to make, plus, it is delicious! I doubled recipe so I would have some on hand for another quick grill night. I have to admit I ate two chops - one with BBQ and one without. They were both great, but the BBQ sauce gave it an extra pop.

We loved this dish. Rich and flavorful, without being over the top, this is a quick and simple recipe that's frankly hard to mess up. We did reduce each 1 tsp ingredient to 3/4 tsp, and reduced the 1/2 tsp salt to 1/4 tsp and had plenty of rub for the four pork chops. A great, healthy way to cook pork chops!

Instead of BBQ, I splashed a dash of Liquid Smoke to each chop. I think this would be great on steak or chicken, too! YUM! Will make again!

I make this all the time. I love it for a quick pork chop meal that is full of flavor. I make up large batches of the spice rub for my spice rack. My husband thinks I should give the spice mix for Christmas presents.

I thought these were good, and they are SO easy. I did also have a little bit more rub than I needed, and I found them to be a little bit spicy. It was good for us, but it might have been a little spicy for some people. I agree with the other reviewers - using a high quality BBQ sauce is important (we use Annie's Smoky Maple BBQ Sauce - my favorite!)! We will make it again.
