Boneless Grilled Pork Chops
While I love boneless thick cut pork chops, you can surely use bone-in and thick cut, too. The key is that they do better if they’re thick cut.
Try to work the maple mustard sauce into the meat. Do some massaging and give the chops some love. Then let them rest in the refrigerator for about an hour or more and all this goodliness will permeate somewhat the meat.
Best Grilled Pork Chops
These are some of the best grilled port chops you’ll taste. And, if you love the sauce for coating the chops, then you might double the recipe because it makes a great topping and/or dipping sauce once those chops come off the grill.
Pork Chops on the Grill
The smokiness of the grilling really pairs well with the chops and the sauce.
And, once those chops are done, let them rest. Then if you like slice them not too thin, not too thick. These slices can then be drizzled with more of the sauce.
Savory Grilled Pork Chops
These chops are both savory and a hint of sweet with the maple syrup.
If you want to make more of the slathering sauce that you’ll use for grilling and use for serving, then you’ll have some of this yumminess to dip each bite of pork into!
Grilled Thick Pork Chops
It’s important that you have a digital meat thermometer. Grilling meat can be tricky. And, you want to ensure that your pork is cooked to perfection.
As the experts at CharBroil say, “For safe consumption, we recommend cooking pork to an internal temperature of 145°F or 65°C. Depending on the cut and thickness of your chop, the time can vary. Check out these recommended cooking times. To make sure your chops are the right temperature, use a digital thermometer.”
Juicy Grilled Pork Chops
We just loved these pork chops! They were juicy and totally fabulous.
The hints of different flavors from the sauce enhanced the overall taste, and there’s nothing like having a big ol’ sprig of fresh dill on top. Don’t forget to chop it up and eat with your pork. Totally delicious!
The Best Maple Mustard Pork Chops
- 3 pork chops, thick cut (about 1.5 to 2" thick), boneless or bone in
- 4 Tbl. French stone ground mustard, see notes below for my choice for the best
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 2 tsp. horse radish
- 3 Tbl. fresh dill, finely chopped + sprigs for garnish
- 1 tsp. sea salt
- 1 tsp. coarse ground pepper, see notes below for butcher's coarse pepper, see Notes below
- In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the mustard, maple syrup, horse radish, dill, salt and pepper.
- Put the pork chops on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Slather one side of the pork chops with about half of the mixture. Flip the chops and slather the other side with the remaining sauce.
- Let the chops (cover the chops with foil or plastic wrap) rest in this sauce (refrigerated) for about 60 minutes. Preheat grill to 350 to 400 degrees
- Pull the chops out of the refrigerator and let them come to about room temperature.
- Put the chops on the grill. Close the lid. Let them sear for about 5 minutes then flip and sear another about 5 minutes.
- Use your digital meat thermometer to check the temperature. Internal temperature should be 145 to 165 degrees Fahrenheit depending upon your preference for pork finish.

I used a butcher's extra coarse grind pepper. It makes a different, I think. You can learn more about this option. Great addition to your pantry. Check my Amazon Storefront.
