How Long to Grill Pork Chops and the Temp?
I am sure many of you are wondering about “How to grill pork chops?” Here are all the cook’s tips:
- Use center-cut bone-in pork chops, about 1-inch thick.
- Fire up your gas grill or charcoal grill, make sure that you grill the chops on the hottest part of your grill.
- Move the chops away if the fire flares up.
- Grill each side of the pork chop for about 3-4 minutes, or until the surface is nicely charred but not burnt. Turn to the other side and grill for another 3-4 minutes.
- To check doneness, insert the tip of a digital meat thermometer into the thickest part of the pork chop. It should be properly cooked when the internal temperature reaches 145°F.
- Remove the pork chops from the grill and let sit for about 5 minutes before serving. This will seal in all the juiciness inside the pork.

Almost grilling season, will try this grilled pork chops soon!
I’ve tried alot of your recipes with amazing results! Keep up the good work! Just a quick question, is the sweet sauce in the ingredients “kecap manis sweet soy sauce” or regular sweet soy sauce??
Kecap manis is fine or sweet soy sauce is fine too.
@ bobby1999, cilantro in the UK may also be known as coriandor. It has a VERY distinct flavor.. not at all like parsley. HTH.
Parsley is a substitute for cilantro stems? Dunno just a web search
Coriander is the same thing
