Grilled Pork Chops

These perfectly grilled pork chops are so easy to make and taste incredible!

Who else loves marinating with soy sauce? I’m fairly certain that ninety percent of my marinades have either soy or lemon added to them. By adding soy sauce to your marinades it infuses a salty taste with out drying out the pork. To balance the intense salty flavor you then add seasonings and I preferably use a rub from one of my all time favorite restaurants. You can purchase their rub at the restaurant or substitute for your favorite rub of choice. It’s all about your personal preference when creating the perfect marinade. This recipe gives you a few simple ingredients that can be tailor to your preference if needed.

You will forget all about bread and butter when your served these flipping delicious in house made potato chips with a unique seasoning. In addition to the freshly made potato chips they serve along side tantalizing home made pickles with a hint of mustard flavoring. Oh that seasoning you see, it is the same rub that I buy for the delectable grilled pork chop recipe I’m about to share with you below. Keep scrolling…

When visiting Q you must try the pulled pork sandwich on a toasted pretzel bun, it’s fantastic! They will serve this with a side of their four special sauces (I let you see those for yourself 😉 ).
