Grilled Teriyaki Pork Chops is one of my favorite ways to eat pork chops. You are going to love the Homemade Teriyaki Sauce that is made with simple ingredients.

Grilled Teriyaki Pork Chops Recipe:

These Pork Chops are grilled to perfection after being marinated in the perfect teriyaki sauce. Our normal meat of choice is chicken, but I am loving pork chops on the grill.

Marinating the pork chops in this easy teriyaki sauce keeps them moist and full of flavor. Pork Chops are budget friendly and are easy to grill.

My kids get tired of eating chicken all the time, so they get so excited when I grill out these pork chops.

Easy Teriyaki Marinade:

This simple teriyaki marinade is made from simple ingredients that you probably have in your pantry. You can buy a teriyaki marinade at the store, but this one is so much better. Plus you know exactly what you are adding to it.

The marinade will taste so much better and it is very easy to make.

Ingredients: 

  • Bone-in Pork Chops 
  • Brown Sugar
  • Soy Sauce
  • Rice Wine Vinegar
  • Honey
  • Minced Garlic
  • Ground Ginger
  • Pepper
  • Cornstarch

How to Grill Teriyaki Pork Chops: 

  • Make Marinade – Mix together the brown sugar, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, honey, garlic, ginger and black pepper together in a small bowl.
  • Place Pork Chops in Marinade – Reserve approximately ½ cup of the this mixture. Use the remaining mixture to marinade the pork chops. Place the pork chops in a large bowl or plastic bag and pour the remaining sauce over the pork.

  • Marinade Pork Loin Chops – Allow the pork chops to marinade for at least 30 minutes but you can marinade it for up to 8 hours. 
  • Refrigerate Pork Chops – Take the pork chops out of the refrigerator 20 minutes before cooking them.
  • Prepare the Grill – Heat the gas grill over medium high heat to at least 400 degrees F and rub the grill gates with oil so that the pork chops do not stick while grilling.
  • Grill Pork Chops – Place the pork chops on the grill and cook for 5-6 minutes per side (based on the inch thickness of the pork chops).
  • Check Pork Chops – Use a meat thermometer to check pork chops internal temperature. When done, pork chop should reach an internal temperature of 145 degrees F.
  • Cooked Pork Chops – The pork will release naturally from the grill gates when it’s ready to flip. If the pork is browning too quickly because of the sugar in the marinade, reduce the temperature on the grill.
  • Let Pork Chops Rest – Move the pork chops to a plate and let them rest for 3-5 minutes before serving.
  • Prepare Pork Chop Glaze – While the pork is cooking, mix the remaining sauce with the cornstarch. Heat this mixture in a sauce pan over medium high heat, whisking constantly until the mixture has thickened.
  • Top Pork Chops with Glaze – Brush this sauce over the grilled pork chops when serving and enjoy!
  • Serve and Enjoy – Garnish with green onions and sesame seeds. Season with salt and pepper.

How long to Grill Pork Chops:

It is important to preheat your grill to 400 degrees before placing pork chops on the grill. Place pork chops on the grill and cook on each side about 5-6 minutes. This could vary depending on the thickness of your pork chops.

Make sure to check your pork chop internal temperature with a meat thermometer. The thermometer should read 145 degrees when pork chops are done. Let the pork chops release naturally from the grill.

If the pork chops, begin to brown to quickly, reduce the heat or move to the area of the side of grill with indirect heat.

What to Serve with Pork Chops:

We serve these pork chops with many different sides. When we grill, I usually pick sides with easy cleanup. These are some of our favorites:

    The chops were fantastic. I used 1″ thick boneless chops and marinated them for 24 hours. The only thing I will do different next time is double the great sauce (marinade) so I will have extra. I served them with green beans and melting potatoes and the sauce was so good on the potatoes. Unfortunately I forgot to add the cornstarch to the sauce but it was still good anyway. I definitely will make this recipe again and double the great sauce. Thank you.
