  • Step 4 – Refrigerate Pork Chops – Take the pork chops out of the refrigerator 20 minutes before cooking them.
  • Step 5 – 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.
  • Step 6 – 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).
  • Step 7 – 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.
  • Step 8 – 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.
  • Step 9 – Let Pork Chops Rest – Move the pork chops to a plate and let them rest for 3-5 minutes before serving.
  • Step 10 – 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.

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.

    The BEST marinade for Pork Chops! I chose to marinade ours overnight!

    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.

    Was at my mom’s house last minute and she invited some more family over and said we have all those pork chops in the fridge, we just need to run to store to get a marinade. I suggested letting me look through grill on a dime for one, lo and behold she had everything for this teriyaki marinade. Everyone loved them l, even my 13 year old picky neice ate a whole pork chop.
