Sweet Heat Pork Chops

Sweet Heat Grilled Pork Chops by Ash's In The Kitchen

What a week! I love pork chops and this recipe doesn’t disappoint! It’s great on the grill or smoker too! Served with Green Bean & Corn Casserole, Brown Sugar Bourbon Baked Beans, Mashed Red Potatoes with Country Gravy and a warm Sourdough loaf.

Sweet Heat Pork Chops

• 3 lbs Pork Chops
• 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
• 1 large clove Garlic; finely minced
• 1/2 teaspoon Onion Powder
• 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
• 2 teaspoons Smoked Paprika
• 1 teaspoon Red Pepper Flake
• 1 teaspoon Mustard Powder
• Splash of Worcestershire Sauce
• Salt and Pepper to taste
• 1/4 cup Brown Sugar

  1. In a large bowl or ziplock bag, add all of the ingredients except the brown sugar and allow to chill, covered, in the fridge for 1 hour to overnight.
  2. Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat and drizzle liberally with oil.
  3. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  4. Once the skillet is hot, remove the pork from the fridge and place in the skillet, searing all sides of the chops. Remove from heat and sprinkle with brown sugar.
  5. Cover the skillet with foil (carefully!) and place in the oven. Bake for 10 minutes or until the thickest chop reaches 165°F and the sugar has caramelized.
  6. Remove from oven and tent with foil, resting for 5 minutes.
