How to Make Grilled Honey Pork Chops

Step 1: Prep

Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. 

Step 2: Make Honey Maple Sauce

Combine the honey, maple syrup, dijon, and salt, in a small bowl. 

Step 3: Grill One Side

Place the pork chops on the grill and brush the top with your honey maple mixture.

Step 4: Turn

Turn the pork chops over after 7 minutes and brush them with the honey maple sauce.

Step 5: Grill Other Side

Cook the other side of the pork chops for 6 minutes, or until the meat thermometer reads 170 degrees.


How do I grill pork chops without letting them dry out?

The secret is to grill them quickly over medium-high heat. You’ll want the meat to cook pretty quickly and sear on the outside, but then remain juicy on the inside. Then, allow the pork chops to rest for a few minutes before serving.

Should I use bone-in or boneless pork chops?

Boneless pork chops are certainly easier because the bone is already removed, but bone-in does allow for extra fat to remain in the pork chop while it’s cooking. That tends to make the meat a bit juicier and more flavorful.

How does dijon mustard help in a pork chop recipe?

It adds lots of flavor, but it also surprisingly helps tenderize the meat! It’s a win-win!
