Sweet & Spicy Pork Chops
These Sweet Heat Pork Chops are absolutely delicious! We made these for lunch last week and regretted not doubling the recipe. They are incredible! The pork chops are marinated in a combination of hot sauce, brown sugar, onion, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, and a splash of vinegar. A little sweet and a little spicy and a whole lotta good!
I used Frank’s Hot Sauce in the marinade. It gives the marinade a great flavor! Since the pork chops are only marinated in the hot sauce, they aren’t really spicy after cooking. Chicken Legs isn’t a fan of super spicy foods and he didn’t think these pork chops were hot. They just have the most wonderful flavor from the marinade.
How to Grill Pork Chops
I know some people are intimidated by cooking pork chops. I assure you, grilled pork chops are very easy to make. You basically cook it like a steak! Let the pork chops marinate in the refrigerator for a few hours to overnight. Remove the chops from the marinade and throw on the grill or in a grill pan.
Can Grilled Pork Chops be Pink?
Pork is safe to eat at 145ºF. Like a steak, it is OK to have some pink on the inside of a pork chop. Don’t overcook the pork chops. They will be dry and tough. Use a meat thermometer and pull the pork chops off the grill when they are 145ºF and let them rest for about 5 minutes. The chops will be tender, juicy, and delicious!
What to Serve with Sweet Heat Pork Chops
These pork chops were crazy good. We might have eaten all of them for lunch. We just couldn’t help ourselves. They tasted great! We have another batch marinating in the refrigerator right now. I can’t wait to fire up the grill tomorrow.
We like to serve the pork chops with a potato casserole and green beans or a salad. Here are a few of our favorite recipes from the blog that go great with these juicy pork chops:
