Grilled Pork Chops
4 center loin or center rib pork chops, each 1-inch thick (about 2 pounds total)
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Kosher or sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
- Build a two level-fire. Set grill rack in place, cover grill with lid and let rack heat up, about 5 minutes.
- Rub chops with oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Grill over medium-hot fire, turning once, until both sides are browned, about 6 minutes.
- Slide chops to cooler part of fire and cover with disposable aluminum roasting pan. Grill over medium-low fire, turning once, until meat is tinged with pink in center (160°F / 70°C), 8 to 10 minutes. Serve immediately.
Makes 4 servings.
