  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x


Units Scale
  • 4 bone-in pork chops (or boneless), at least 1 to 1 1/2 inches thick
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons thyme leaves, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar, maple syrup, or honey
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • Fresh chopped parsley for garnish


  1. Make the Marinade: In a bowl, whisk together olive oil, soy sauce, chopped thyme, brown sugar (or maple syrup/honey), Dijon mustard, minced garlic, salt, and black pepper.
  2. Marinate the Pork Chops: Place the pork chops in a shallow dish or a zip-top bag. Pour the marinade over the chops, making sure they are well-coated. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1-8 hours, allowing the flavors to infuse into the meat.
  3. Preheat the Grill: Preheat your gas grill to 400°F (medium-high heat).
  4. Searing: Remove the pork chops from the marinade and discard the remaining marinade. Sear the pork chops on the hot grill for about 2 minutes per side for the initial sear. This helps to lock in the juices.
  5. Grilling: Reduce the heat to medium and continue grilling the pork chops for an additional 4-7 minutes per side. Use an instant-read thermometer to check for an internal temperature of 140-145°F for medium doneness. Cooking time may vary based on the thickness of the chops.
  6. Resting: Once the desired internal temperature is reached, transfer the grilled pork chops to a clean plate, cover with foil, and let them rest for 5 minutes. During this time, the carryover cooking will raise the internal temperature to 145°F.
  7. Serve: Garnish with fresh chopped parsley and serve your juicy grilled pork chops. Enjoy!
