Use your Foreman Grill or other indoor contact grill to make the most delicious, perfectly cooked boneless pork chops. With just a few simple seasonings, they’re done to juicy perfection in about 5 minutes.
There’s been lots of new kitchen appliances to hit the market of the past several years, but one appliance that always seems to stand the test of time is the Foreman Grill. And here’s the thing, they’re really good! These grills are what’s called “contact” grills, which use heated plates to cook the food on both sides simultaneously. They come in many shapes and sizes, and of course there are other brands of indoor contact grills that work well too. To show just how easy this recipe is, I use one of the most basic, 2-serving grills that cost under 20 bucks. It’s perfect for a quick meal and stores away easily.
Use Boneless Pork Chops
Boneless pork chops are one of my favorite cuts of meat. They are so incredibly versatile, can be cooked any number of ways, are delicious and also very affordable. I like to use boneless chops with the Foreman Grill because the cook nice and evenly. Pork chops which are ¾″ to 1″ thick are best are best with this method, and always come out nice and tender and juicy.
Our pork chops will use just a few simple seasonings to really bring out some incredible flavors. We’ll use Worcestershire sauce, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper and a little olive oil. That’s it! Mix those ingredients in a small bowl, and then add them to a zip-top bag. Add the pork chops, get them all nice and coated with the mix, then let them marinate for a little bit. You can marinate them for as little as 15 minutes to as long as overnight.
Less Chill and Preheat Grill
A couple of things are important to have the best results with cooking pork chops on your Foreman Grill (or just about any method for that matter). Remove the marinating pork chops from the fridge and let them sit out for a few minutes to lose some of the coldness from the refrigerator. No need to shock the meat by going from extreme cold temps to the hot grill. Meat always cooks better when closer to room temperature. Also, make sure to preheat your Foreman Grill. Most grills will have an indicator light that indicates (sometimes by shutting off, depending on the particular model) when the grill is hot. Never put the meat on a cold grill.
Cooks in About 5 Minutes
If your grill has a temperature setting, use the highest setting. Place the pork chops on the grill and close the lid. Thinner chops will be done in about 4 minutes. Thicker chops will need closer to 6 minutes. The internal temperature of the chops should be at least 145°(F) when checked with an instant read thermometer.
Let Pork Chops Rest
When the cooking time is complete, remove the pork chops to a plate. As much as you’ll be tempted to start digging in, wait a couple of minutes. Letting the meat rest allows the juices to redistribute as well as the cooking process to continue. After 3-5 minutes, you can dig in and enjoy!
