Balsamic Grilled Pork Chops

Print Friendly


My sisters were teasing me the other day that most of my main dish recipes are cooked on the grill. There is just something about grilled food that I absolutely love. My mom is the same way- I can still remember her going outside in the middle of a snowstorm to throw some chicken breasts on the grill. :) The things we do for good food . . .
I know that pork chops tend to be tough and sometimes not very good when they are cooked, but this marinade leaves them so moist, tender and full of flavor that you will never go back to preparing them any other way.
Balsamic Grilled Pork Chops

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup minced fresh parsley (or 1 Tbsp dried parsley)
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
4 boneless pork chops (about 1″ thick)

In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the first eight ingredients. Once mixed together, add pork chops. Seal bag and refrigerate for at least 8 hours (or overnight- the longer you marinade, the better they are!).
Drain and discard marinade. Grill pork chops, covered, over medium heat for 4-5 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 145°.

    This recipe looks and sounds porktastic! I can’t wait to try it. Being a wife of a hog farmer, we are lucky to have quite a bit of pork in our freezer, so new recipes are always appreciated. A lot of people tend to overcook pork which makes it quite tough and unenjoyable. The key to juicy-butter-cutting-pork is to use a meat thermometer and take it off the heat source when the internal temperature of the pork reaches 145º. Cover loosely with foil and let it rest for 3 minutes. This should yield you some yummy pork!

    Thanks for providing this recipe. I marinated my chops for 8 hours and they were moist and oh so flavorful. You’re correct this will be our go to marinade from now on.

      Hi Deborah, Chicken would work great too. Not sure if the grilling time would change slightly, so just watch them closely. Let us know how it all turns out! Thanks so much for stopping by our blog and have a terrific day!!

    I’ve been marinating your recipe for 8 hours but it’s below 30 degrees and really don’t want to make my hubby grill tonight… Do you think I could bake these in the oven? ? Rather new to cooking and wasn’t sure if the sauce would burn??
    Any help would be appreciated! Thanks for the recipe!
