This quick and simple recipe is ideal for any BBQ or summer get-together. The pork chops are grilled to golden brown perfection after being soaked in a flavorful marinade.

Pork chops are an underrated cut of meat in my opinion because they’re cheap, juicy, and flavorful. Some of my favorite ways to prepare pork chops include making mushroom pork chops, brown sugar pork chops, and these easy but delicious grilled pork chops.

I love to grill when the weather is warm, and these grilled pork chops are one of my favorites to make because they are flavorful and go great with a variety of side dishes. In the winter, you can also braise or pan sear these pork chops.

Grilled Pork Chops đź”—

Just a few ingredients—soy sauce, vinegar, brown sugar, paprika, thyme, and garlic powder—make an easy marinade for these delicious grilled pork chops.

Prep: 5min

Total: 1h30min


  • 6 bone-in pork loin chops (about 1-inch thick)
  • 1/2 c. reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 c. apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. light brown sugar 
  • 2 tsp. smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. dried thyme
  • Salt, for seasoning
  • Ground black pepper, for seasoning
  • Fresh thyme, for garnish


  1. Place the pork chops in a 13×9-inch baking dish. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the soy sauce, vinegar, olive oil, brown sugar, smoked paprika, garlic powder, and thyme. Pour the marinade over the pork chops; cover and let them marinate for at least 1 hour or up to overnight, flipping halfway through your desired marinating time.
  3. Remove the pork chops from the refrigerator 30 minutes before grilling. Meanwhile, pre-heat the grill to medium-high heat, 400° to 450°. Oil the grill grates well. Remove the pork chops from the marinade; discard the remaining marinade
  4. Grill the pork chops uncovered until grill marks appear, 5 to 7 minutes. Turn the chops and grill until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center registers 145°, 5 to 7 minutes more. Remove the pork chops from the grill and cover with foil; let rest 10 minutes.
  5. Season the pork chops with more salt and pepper just before serving. Garnish with fresh thyme, if you like.
