Glazed Pork Chops
There’s only one thing better than a well-cooked pork chop — that’s a grilled, well-cooked pork chop.
FOR THE GLAZE—
FOR THE PORK CHOPS—
Because the glaze contains sugar, it burns easily if left over direct heat. So grill the chops half the time over the flame, then move to the unlit side of the grill.
Prepare grill for indirect grilling, heating one side to medium-high heat and keeping the other side unlit.
Combine lime juice, ketchup, brown sugar, honey, and red pepper flakes for the glaze in a bowl; set aside half the glaze for serving and use remaining half during grilling.
Trim pork chops of fat. Rub chops with oil and season with salt and pepper.
Grill chops, covered, over heated side of grill for 3 minutes. Rotate chops 90 degrees and cook for another 3 minutes. Flip chops and place over unlit side of grill for 3 minutes. Brush chops generously with glaze. Cook chops until meat reaches an internal temperature of 155 degrees, 6–8 minutes.
Remove chops from grill; tent with foil and allow chops to rest for 5 minutes. Serve chops with reserved glaze and Creamy Mustard Greens.
Start grilling chops directly over medium-high heat with bones facing 4 o'clock.
After 3 minutes, turn the bones so they face 8 o'clock. Grill another 3 minutes, then flip chops over.
Brush the chops with glaze and finish cooking them for 6–8 minutes over indirect heat (no flame).
