Grilled Pork Chop's with Dad's Garlic Rub

Prep Time: 45 - 60 minutes

Cook Time: 15 - 22 minutes

When you're feeling a bit nostalgic for your childhood and/or hankering for some comfort food, this recipe will please!

Remember when Dad would grill on a charcoal brazier in the backyard? While he waited for the coals to ash over, he would season the pork chops with garlic salt, pepper, oregano and a pinch of nutmeg (his secret ingredient). This is a great all-purpose rub to keep in your pantry for seasoning not only pork, but also, beef, chicken, and veg.

Here’s to all the barbecue-loving Dads!

Ingredients

  • 6 boneless, center-cut pork chops

Dad's Garlic Rub

  • 1/2 cup kosher salt
  • 3 tbsp. garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp. Mexican oregano, crushed very fine
  • 2 tbsp. ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp. ground black pepper
  • 1½ tsp. ground allspice
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cloves

Directions

Begin by mixing dry ingredients for Dad's Garlic Rub. This seasoning can be stored, so feel free to make it in advance to save time.

Trim any excess fat surrounding the chops. A very thin layer is all you need as it really doesn't do anything to enhance the juiciness of the chops.

Season liberally with Dad's Garlic Rub and let sit at room temperature for 45 to 60 minutes.

Set up grill for direct heat grilling with two zones: high heat and medium heat. Brush and oil the grates before cooking. Place chops on the high heat side for two minutes to sear the meat, flip and sear the other side for two minutes. Move chops to medium heat; rotate 90 degrees for crosshatch marks. Cook for another 3 to 4 minutes per side or until the internal temperature reaches 140°F for medium (medium is 145°F; the temperature will rise another 5° with carry over heat). Let rest 5 to 10 before serving.
