Keto Grilled Pork Chops
Get out of your chicken dinner rut with this Grilled Pork Chops recipe. My homemade lemon-rosemary dry rub is the secret ingredient in this zippy grilled pork chop recipe. A simple blend of lemon zest, fresh rosemary, salt and black pepper takes this recipe to a new level of deliciousness.
To make this dish, coat the thick-cut, bone-in pork chops with the rub, which flavors the meat, ensures its juiciness and tenderness. Let them sit with the lemon-rosemary rub for at least one hour at room temperature or even overnight in the fridge. Be sure the pork chops are at room temperature before grilling, and let them rest out of the fridge for an hour or so. It’s important not to overcrowd the grill pan. If needed, cook the meat in two batches.
To make the Grilled Pork Chops, you will need the following ingredients:
Steps to make Keto Grilled Pork Chops
Make lemon-rosemary rub
Rub pork chops
Cook pork chops
Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. In batches, place the pork chops on the grill pan. Grill on the first side for 5 minutes, until the pork chop easily releases from the pan. Flip and cook on the other side for 4 to 8 minutes until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the pork chop (don't touch the bone) registers 135 °F.
