Instructions Checklist
  • Trim fat from chops. Sprinkle chops lightly with salt and pepper. For a charcoal grill, grill chops on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals until desired doneness, turning once halfway through grilling. Allow 12 to 14 minutes for medium-rare (145 degrees F) and 15 to 17 minutes for medium doneness (160 degrees F). (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place chops on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as above.)
