Spicy Grilled BBQ Pork Chops
Prep Time: 55 minutes
|8 center cut pork chops (bone-in, about 6 oz each)|
|1/2 cup barbecue sauce|
|1/4 cup oil|
|3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice|
|1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce|
|2 cloves garlic (minced|
|2 teaspoons dried thyme|
|1 teaspoon cayenne pepper|
|salt (to taste, optional)|
1. In a large bowl, whisk together barbecue sauce, oil, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, thyme, cayenne pepper, and salt.
2. Place the pork chops in the bowl and marinate for at least 1 hour or up to 8 hours.
3. Preheat grill or indoor grill pan to medium-high heat. Place the marinated pork chops on the grill, and allow them to cook for about 3 minutes per side, then reduce heat to medium-low and cook until the thickest part of the pork chop reaches between 145 degrees (medium-rare) and 160 degrees (well done).
4. Let pork chops rest for 3 minutes before serving.
