Grilled Pork Loin Chop

Pork loin chops are a great cut of meat simply grilled and served as is. This is a slightly different take on a pork chop, but you can use porks chops instead of this cut of meat. These were inexpensive too. The 4 pack that I purchased was around $5.00. The type of pork I am using is leaner and I Frenched it for presentation purposes, which is optional. The formal definition of Frenching means to cut away fat and meat from the bone for presentation purposes. However, I am not going to cut away any meat for presentation – I want to eat it!  When Frenching meat it creates a stick for picking up and eating, which kids love!

Ingredients

4 – 6 oz. pork loin chops Frenched
1/4 cup of olive oil
Kosher salt and fresh cracked black pepper

Technique

Preheat grill or grill pan so that it is hot or the chop will not sear when placed on the grill. Optionally use a charcoal grill. Rub a very little bit of olive oil over chops and lightly season with kosher salt and fresh pepper. Grill on each side for about 5 minutes covered. Keep in mind that grilling times will be different for the thickness of the chop and type of grill that you are using. Pork should be cooked through, but not over cooked. Cover chop with foil and let rest for 5 minutes. Plate and serve.
