Bobby Flay’s 6 tips for perfectly grilled pork chops

Perfect Pork

Perfect Pork Chop Tips:

1. Pick your pork

Whether you prefer boneless or bone-in chops, center cut is always best.

2. Heat the grill

Make sure your grill is good and hot. Not only will this give you perfectly charred sear marks, but it will also help prevent the pork from sticking to the cooking surface.

3. Cook in cast iron

If you’re grilling indoors, a heavy cast iron grill pan is your best bet. They retain heat and provide a consistent and uniform cook.

4. Warm it up

Remove pork from the refrigerator 30 minutes before cooking to allow the internal temperature to rise so the chops cooks evenly.

5. Let it rest

Let pork rest for 5 minutes before cutting or serving it. This allows the juices in the meat to redistribute so they don’t run out out onto the plate.

6. Wait to glaze

Put glazes on your meat during the last few minutes of cooking. The sauce (especially sweet ones) will burn if put on too early.
