Cooking boneless pork chops on a Blackstone Griddle
First you will need to make the pork chop marinade. This step is very important.
Pork chops tend to be on the tougher and drier side. So by marinating the pork chops prior to cooking (for at least one hour), we'll help seal in the moisture and give them some extra flavor.
Who doesn't love juicy pork chops!
- Make the pork marinade: Put all of the pork marinade ingredients into a small bowl. Whisk until well combined.
- Combine the pork chops and marinade: Next, place the pork chops in a large baggie or casserole dish. Then add the marinade and massage until the pork chops are completely covered.
- Marinate the pork chops: The the pork chops marinate in the fridge for at least 1-2 hours, max 12 hours. This helps to tenderize and add flavor!
- Cook the pork chops on The Blackstone Griddle: Next, turn the Blackstone on and heat over medium-high heat. Once hot add the pork chops and the marinade to the hot griddle. Cook for 2-4 minutes on each side until the internal temperature of the pork chop reaches 145F. Edges around the pork chops should get nice and caramelized (don't mistake this for them burning).
- Let Rest: Let the pork chops rest for 5 minutes before eating or cutting into them. This helps them remain juicy and not dry out.
If you don't have a Blackstone Grill or gas grill, you can easily make this pork chop recipe in a cast iron skillet or by using a grill pan.
Make the pork chop marinade and marinate pork chops for at least 1 hour. Then heat up a large skillet over medium high heat.
Next add the pork chops and all the marinade to the skillet. Cook for 2-4 minutes (once pork chop starts to caramelize) and then flip and cook for an additional 2-4 minutes until done.
This grilled pork chop recipe uses a paleo pork marinade. If you don't care about keeping it paleo, there's a few substitutions you can do.
- Coconut aminos - you can substitute soy sauce or tamari
- Honey - you can use maple syrup or brown sugar
- Avocado oil - honestly this is my preferred cooking oil for marinades. You can use olive oil too but I would reduce the heat quite a bit because of the smoke point.
- Thin boneless center cut pork chops - you can use thick pork chops, bone in pork chops or pork loin chops instead. You would just need to increase the cooking time
- Pork Marinade - If you don't want to make you own pork marinade you can use a store bought one like Soy Vay Veri Veri Teriyaki Sauce or Primal Kitchen's no soy teriyaki sauce.
- You can also make a balsamic vinegar based marinade

How to reheat
Place pork chop on a microwave safe plate. Microwave for 45-60 seconds for smaller pork chops or 1.2-2 minutes for larger pork chops.
These thin pork chops cook quickly! Cook just 2-4 minutes per side or until the internal temperature reaches 145F. Thick pork chops may take anywhere from 7-10 minutes per side.
Add a little oil to the griddle and then sear pork chops on both sides over medium high heat. Cooking pork chops quickly and over high heat ensures that they do not dry out.
The best way to make sure they don't dry out is to brine the pork chops or marinate the pork chops prior to cooking. If you use the pork marinade recipe above, you will not have to put oil on the griddle before cooking.
Once pork chops reach an internal temperature of 145F there are considered done.
