From: EatingWell.com, October 2019

Juicy grilled pork chops with a tiny bit of sweetness and a faint hint of spiciness make for an excellent simple dinner main that pairs with practically any side. A simple brine imparts flavor, but mostly keeps the pork chops from drying out; just don't marinate the meat for any longer than 4 hours or it'll soften the texture.

  1. Stir together water, honey, vinegar, crushed red pepper and 4 teaspoons of the salt in a small bowl until honey and salt are dissolved. Place pork chops and water mixture in a zip-top plastic bag; seal and refrigerate 1 hour.
  2. Preheat a grill or grill pan to high (450°F to 500°F). Remove chops from bag; discard marinade and pat chops very dry with paper towels. Drizzle chops evenly with oil on both sides; sprinkle with black pepper and remaining ½ teaspoon salt.
  3. Place chops on oiled grates; grill, covered, until a thermometer inserted in thickest portion of meat registers 140°F, about 4 minutes per side. Remove from grill; let rest 5 minutes.
