Puerto Rican Pork Chops



You will need:
4 pork chops (8-10 ounces each and about 1 inch thick)
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 tsp coarse salt
2 tsp dried oregano
2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 tsp dried sage
Sparkling BBQ Sauce (find in the ‘sauces’ category)

Arrange the pork chops in a baking dish just large enough to hold them in a single layer and brush them with olive oil.
Combine the salt, oregano, pepper, sage, and garlic powder in a bowl and stir with your fingers to mix. Sprinkle the rub over the pork chops on both sides, patting the spices onto the meat with your fingers. Let the chops cure in the refrigerator, covered for 15-30 minutes.
We use the charcoal grill for these special chops, (depends on the heat of your grill, if using propane it should be a medium-high heat).
When you’re ready to cook, brush and oil the grill grates. Arrange the chops on the hot grill grate. Give each chop a quarter turn on each side after 2 minutes to create crossmarks.Grill the chops until browned on the outside and cooked through, 4-6 minutes on each side. Start basting the chops with BBQ sauce (mentioned above) on both sides.

These are amazingly delicious another one of Josh’s faves!

We doubled the spice rub…and it was enough for 8 chops.
