Ingredients

  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • ¼ cup fresh lemon juice
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 6 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper seeded and minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 pounds bone-in pork chops

Instructions

  • In a large zipper-top plastic bag, add oil, lemon zest and juice, honey, garlic, jalapeño, thyme, paprika, 1 teaspoon salt, and ½ teaspoon pepper. Mash to combine.
  • Add the pork chops and rub until evenly coated. Marinade for up 2 hours at room temperature, turning occasionally, or in the refrigerator overnight. If refrigerated, remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes prior to grilling.
  • Preheat the grill or grill pan. Grill the chops directly over medium-high heat, turning often, until well browned, about 3 to 4 minutes total. Transfer to a medium-low heat part of the grill or grill pan and cover, cooking until the chops register 155°F on an internal thermometer, about 2 to 4 minutes more.
  • Transfer the chops to a platter and cover loosely with aluminum foil. Let the chops rest 3 to 5 minutes before serving.
