These Marinated Grilled Pork Chops are quickly soaked in the best grilled pork chop marinade, with rum, mustard and seasonings, then cooked over a hot charcoal grill. Keto, low carb and low fat recipe!
Summer has come to a close, but we’re still enjoying gorgeous weather in Kansas City! My family is trying to fit in as much fall grilling as possible before winter comes!
We celebrated the first official day of fall this week, and the weather was so beautiful that we just had to grill that evening. We had some bone-in chops in the refrigerator, so we invited some neighbors over for a casual dinner outside.
Pork chops are a favorite in our family. I like to cook pork chops two ways; with a super quick sear in the skillet, or marinated and grilled slowly. Why? Like chicken breasts, they are pretty low in fat content and can dry out easily.
Another way we avoid dry chops is to choose bone-in chops over boneless, but this recipe works nicely for either! Having the best grilled pork chop marinade on your side allows you to choose either kind of chop!
My husband and I are charcoal purists when it comes to grilling. We love the flavor and the smell, but I think the major part of our choice to use charcoal is the experience. When we light up the charcoal grill, it usually means that we are going to spend the next hour outside with family or friends, gathered around the grill. We try to grill as much of the dinner as we can, including vegetables, so that I don’t have to spend time away from the group in the kitchen!
I served these marinated grilled pork chops with very simple sides, this Grilled Corn On the Cob in Foil, which goes on the grill right when you put on the pork chops, and this Kale Brussels Sprouts Salad with Apples and Bacon, which can be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator. It has a maple vinaigrette on it that is perfect for fall, and a great compliment to the savory rum and mustard glaze on the pork chops!
What will you be charcoal grilling this season?
