These pork chops are the perfect way to kick off grilling season! Happy Grillin’!
1 cup water
¼ cup honey
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
½ teaspoon crushed red pepper
4 ½ teaspoons kosher salt, divided
4 (6 ounce) bone-in, center-cut pork chops (about 1-inch thick)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon black pepper
Stir together water, honey, vinegar, crushed red pepper and 4 teaspoons of the salt in a small bowl until honey and salt are dissolved. Place pork chops and water mixture in a zip-top plastic bag; seal and refrigerate 1 hour.
Preheat a grill or grill pan to high (450 degrees F to 500 degrees F). Remove chops from bag; discard marinade and pat chops very dry with paper towels. Drizzle chops evenly with oil on both sides; sprinkle with black pepper and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt.
Place chops on oiled grates; grill, covered, until a thermometer inserted in thickest portion of meat registers 140 degrees F, about 4 minutes per side. Remove from grill; let rest 5 minutes.
