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.

  • Preheat a grill or grill pan to high (450 degrees F to 500 degrees 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 1/2 teaspoon salt.

  • Place chops on oiled grates; grill, covered, until a thermometer inserted in thickest portion of meat registers 140 degrees F, about 4 minutes per side. Remove from grill; let rest 5 minutes.
