I’ve always liked pork chops, but I remember them from my childhood as dry tough slabs of meat that my dad cooked on the grill.
My first few attempts at pork chops weren’t much better. Then I found this recipe. The pork chops are come out moist if you simple don’t overcook them and the sauce is AMAZING!
I always end up with extra sauce. Be sure to save it…it tastes great over all kinds. I’ve use it on leftover rice, couscous and chicken.
So before the summer grilling season disappears, do yourself a favor and give this recipe a try.

Grilled Pork Chops with Apple Brown Sugar Sauce
Printable recipe below…
1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup apple juice (beer is a good substitute, but cut back oil to 2 tbsp)
4 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
salt and pepper
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1/2 cup water
6 boneless pork chops
Start by preheating your grill to high heat.
In a small saucepan add brown sugar, apple juice, oil, soy sauce, ginger, salt, pepper, cornstarch and water.
The apple juice really makes this sauce remarkable, but if you don’t have any, substitute your favorite beer. I tried it once with a wheat beer and really loved how it turned out. Just be sure to cut back the oil if you go with beer.
Once you have your sauce ingredients mixed together well, turn up the heat and bring the mixture to a boil. Allow it to lightly boil until thickened.
Brush grill grates lightly with oil before placing chops on the grill. Cook for approximately 10-12 minutes, turning once.
Baste pork chops with sauce just before removing from grill. Top pork chops with additional sauce and serve remaining sauce on the side.
