Recipe Summary



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a small bowl, mix together the salt, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, chile powder, and cayenne pepper.

  • Spray the chops on both sides with cooking spray, or brush them with 2 Tbs. olive oil, and season both sides with the spice mixture. Drizzle honey over both sides of the chops.

  • To grill the chops: Prepare a grill to medium-high. Grill the chops 5-7 minutes per side, or until a thermometer inserted into the center registers 145 degrees F and the juices run clear. Let the chops rest for 5 minutes before serving.

  • To cook chops on the stovetop: In a large skillet, heat 2 Tbs. olive oil over medium heat. Sear the chops on one side, 5-7 minutes; flip and cook another 5-7 minutes until cooked through, following the temperature guideline in Step 3. Let chops rest 5 minutes before serving.


I often make this with double-boned lamb chops (my kids like them just as much as pork) or boneless, butterflied pork chops (they end up thinner, which means they will cook even faster than bone-in chops).Reprinted from Back to the Kitchen by Freddie Prinze Jr. Copyright (c) 2016 by Freddie Prinze Jr. By permission of Rodale Books.
