Serves: 4 // Prep time: 5 minutes | Marinating time: 15 to 30 minutes | Grilling time: 8 to 10 minutes

Grocery List

Fresh Produce

  • 2 lemons
  • 2 rosemary sprigs

Meat / Poultry / Seafood

  • 4 bone-in pork loin chops, each about 8 oz and 1" thick

Oil and Spices

  • 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • .25 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • .25 tsp kosher salt


  • 3 tbsp soy sauce


  • .5 tsp golden brown sugar



  • ¼ cup plus 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon packed golden brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary leaves
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • 4 bone-in pork loin chops, each about 8 ounces and 1 inch thick, trimmed of excess fat


  1. In a medium bowl whisk the marinade ingredients.

  2. Place the chops in a large, resealable plastic bag and pour in the marinade. Press the air out of the bag and seal tightly. Turn the bag to distribute the marinade, place in a bowl, and allow to stand at room temperature for 15 to 30 minutes before grilling.

  3. Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium heat (350° to 450°F).

  4. Remove the chops from the bag and discard the marinade. Brush the cooking grates clean. Grill the chops over direct medium heat, with the lid closed as much as possible, until barely pink in the center, 8 to 10 minutes, turning once or twice. Remove from the grill and let rest for 3 to 5 mintes. Serve warm.

Weber Strikes Again

This is the second or third recipe I have tried from this website. I did not write a review on the first but this one oh WOW. My wife has been struggling with making juicy pork chops and now I think I will have to do it from now on. Only thing I did different from the recipe was I seared the chops first then went to medium heat. Other than that I followed the recipe to the letter.

Delicious and tender!

The flavor is great and the meat is quite tender. My childhood memories of pork chops are now blissfully erased. They used to be dry, tough and not too pleasing. Now, they rival a good beef steak with this recipe! I will use this again and again!
