  • 4 pork chops, bone in ¾ inch thick
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • ½ lemon juice and zest
  • 2 tablespoons Italian Seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons parsley leaves, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground pepper


  • Place the pork chops into a resealable bag.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together olive oil, brown sugar, mustard, soy sauce, lemon juice, lemon zest, Italian seasoning, parsley, garlic and pepper.
  • Pour the marinade over the pork chops in the plastic bag, making sure it evenly coats each piece of meat.
  • Seal and place the bag in a large bowl (as the bones may puncture the bag) in the refrigetor for at least 1 hour or overnight.
  • To grill, preheat the grill to 400 degrees Fahrenheit, on medium high heat. Grill for about 5 minutes on each side. (See notes below for grill time for thicker cuts)
  • Let rest for at least 8 minutes before serving.


*Nutritional facts provided are only an estimate, accuracy is not guaranteed.
  • A ½” thick chop takes about 5 minutes per side to reach medium doneness. A ¾” thick chop takes about 6 minutes per side. And for a 1” thick chop, cook for  about 7 to 8 minutes per side.
  • Only turn the pork once for nice grill marks.
  • The pork chops should reach at least 145 Fahrenheit in the thickest part, which will be cooked medium.
  • For a boost of flavor, set aside a few tablespoons of the marinade before you add to the pork. Once you’ve grilled the chops, warm up the reserved marinade and drizzle the sauce on top of the pork.
