These Garlic Herb Grilled Pork Chops are made with boneless pork chops marinated in olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, and Italian seasoning, then quickly seared on a hot grill. They cook in about 5 minutes, and can be cooked on a outdoor grill or stove top grill pan.
I wish the weather was better grilling weather. We have only had a few truly nice days this Spring, and I’ve fallen into a rut with dinner recipes. Taco Tuesday, pasta once a week, fish once a week, and so on. With a child that is a real picky eater, sometimes it’s hard to come up with new recipes for this blog that I can honestly say we all really liked. These Garlic Herb Grilled Pork Chops were a winner!
Neither myself nor the picky eater really like pork chops all that much. We will eat them, but it’s not something we ask for or crave often. My husband does like them, however, so I end up buying them and freezing them until I decide I really want them.
Then I decided to marinate them, and we all loved these! My daughter even asked when I can make this grilled pork chop recipe again.
Garlic Herb Grilled Pork Chops
This is the easiest grilled pork chops recipe. The pork chop marinade uses dried Italian seasoning, minced garlic, and lemon juice. I suggest a minimum of thirty minutes marinating time, but no more than two hours or the acid lemon juice will start to cook the pork.
Since better summer weather is coming, at least I hope, here are some other grilling recipes you might like.

- 6 boneless pork chops (about 1 1/2 pounds)
- 1 cup olive oil
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
Combine the olive oil, minced garlic, Italian seasoning, lemon juice, salt, and pepper in a measuring cup; mix well.
Place the pork chops in a large zipper freezer bag. Pour the marinade over the pork chops and seal the bag. Flip the sealed bag over a few times to coat the pork with the marinade. Lay the bag flat on a plate so all the pork is covered and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or up to 2 hours.
GRILL INSTRUCTIONS: Heat an outdoor propane grill to 400 degrees F. Remove the pork chops from the marinade and brush off the pieces of garlic. Discard the marinade.
Place the pork chops on the grill and close the lid. Cook for 3 minutes or until cooked with grill marks on the bottom, then turn. Cook for about 3 minutes more, or until the pork reaches 145 degrees F.
STOVETOP INSTRUCTIONS: Heat a cast iron grill pan over high heat. Place the pork chops on the pan, working in batches. Lower the heat just slightly and cook for 3 minutes or until cooked with grill pan marks on the bottom. Turn and cook for 3 minutes more or until the pork reaches 145 degrees F.
Nutritional information for this recipe is estimated and will vary depending on the size of the pork chop and amount of marinade remaining on the pork.
