Just say no to dry, flavorless pork chops! Juicy and delicious grilled boneless chops are easy to make. Choose the right chop, add simple seasoning, and follow our video and directions to grill the best boneless pork chop you’ve ever had in your life!
The Best Boneless Pork Chops for Grilling
Pork chops are naturally lean. That’s why it’s important to choose extra thick, extra meaty center-cut pork chops, like our Boneless Pork Chops, when you grill for maximum flavor and juiciness. Our master butchers precisely cut center-cut pork loins into boneless, thick chops that are perfectly sized for the grill. They are individually flash-frozen for your convenience, so you can easily cook up just one for yourself or more for the whole family.
How to Grill Juicy Boneless Pork Chops
Enjoy a perfectly seasoned and juicy grilled pork chop in just a few simple steps.
1. Thaw and Season Pork Chops
Thaw pork chops overnight in the refrigerator. When fully thawed, pat dry, drizzle with olive, grapeseed, or canola oil and season generously. Season with your favorite seasoning blend or try Omaha Steaks Seasoning featuring a combination of garlic, onion, and savory spices.
2. Prepare the Grill
Preheat your gas or charcoal grill to medium-high. Before you grill, make sure the grill is clean and oiled. Keep pork chops from sticking to a hot grill by oiling your grates using tongs and a rolled-up paper towel dipped in vegetable oil. Grill spray works too, but you may get flare-ups.
3. Grilling the Pork Chops
It’s time to grill! Place your pork chops directly over the flames to cook. You will grill your pork chops approximately 4-7 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the pork chops and heat of your grill.
Unlike other grilled meat, it’s okay to flip your pork chops often. Your goal is even cooking without overcooking. To create the signature cross-hatch grill marks turn the pork chop 90-degrees halfway through cooking each side. Make sure to have a meat thermometer handy so you can cook to the perfect internal temperature.
4. Don’t Overcook Pork Chops
It’s a common mistake to overcook a pork chop, resulting in dry, tasteless meat. Properly cooked pork chops should be pink and moist in the center. For incredibly juicy and tender pork chops you want an internal temperature of 145°F.
Remove your chops from the grill when the meat thermometer registers at 140°F or 5°F below the target temperature. The pork chops will continue to cook to 145°F after you remove it from the heat source.
5. Rest for 5 Minutes and Serve
The hard work is now done! Rest the pork chop for 5 minutes after removing from the grill. This allows the juices to redistribute and the pork chop to come to temperature. Slice and, if desired, serve with a chimichurri sauce or Omaha Steaks Sweet & Tangy Barbeque Sauce. Whip up a delicious side dish and a decadent dessert for an incredible grilled pork chop dinner.
