Take Your Grilling Anywhere



  • In the bowl of a food processor, process the marinade ingredients until very smooth, 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Arrange the chops side by side in a shallow dish. Pour the marinade over the chops and turn to coat them on all sides. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator for 3 to 5 hours.
  • Remove the chops from the dish and wipe off most of the marinade. Discard the marinade. Lightly brush the chops with oil and let stand at room temperature for 15 to 30 minutes before grilling.
  • Prepare the grill for direct cooking over high heat (450° to 550°F).
    Prepare the grill for cooking over high heat (500°F).
  • Brush the cooking grates clean. Grill the chops over direct high heat, with the lid closed, until the chops are cooked to your desired doneness, about 8 minutes for medium rare, rotating and turning them once or twice for even cooking. Each time you lift the chops off the cooking grate to rotate them or turn them over, place them down on a clean area of the grate, and then brush away the bits of marinade that will cling to the grate as you go.
  • Remove the chops from the grill and let rest for 3 to 5 minutes. Serve warm.
