If you're looking for a different way to prepare boneless pork loin chops for a family meal, the following recipe will easily serve six people. These chops were marinated first in a herb and garlic sauce, and then cooked on a George Foreman Grill. They were not only juicy and flavorful, but tender as well.

Pork "The Healthy Meat Choice"

  • The leanest cuts of pork are tenderloin, followed by pork chops, pork steaks, pork roast, ham, then pork cutlets.
  • Before cooking pork you should try to trim away as much of the fat as possible.
  • At one time people were told to cook pork well done. This would make the pork tough and dry. Pork only needs to be cooked to an internal temperature of 160°F/71°C. Ground pork and pork sausages do need to be cooked thoroughly.
  • All pork can be safely frozen whether fresh or cooked.

George Foreman Grill

If you are planning to buy a George Foreman grill, I recommend purchasing one that has removable plates. I have an older model where the plates are not removable and I find it sometimes difficult to clean. With the newer models the grill plates are dishwasher safe.

Cook time: 8 min

That looks really mouth watering:) it's lunch time here!

You're right about the foreman grill - I have the older one too with no removable plates and it's a pain to clean! I've been tempted to buy anew one just for that reason. Sounds silly, I know but when I'm making chicken sandwiches for a family of four and I have to clean each time - or it burns...not yummy!

Wow! This not only looks beautiful it sound amazing, Susan! I really appreciated that you offer some added information about the cuts of pork and proper cooking temperature. No one wants to eat an old dry over-cooked pork dinner like in the old days. So many good things in this article, thanks for sharing your grilled pork loin chops with us. (That spring mix salad is simply gorgeous!)

Great job! Super descriptions and pictures. Smart to include a bit on the removal plates for the Foreman grill. It can be such a pain otherwise. Well done!

Pork chops are one of my favorites, Susan, so I am always looking for quick and easy ways to prepare them. I have a Foreman grill so look forward to trying your recipe for grilling chops that do not end up dry and tasteless.

This looks like a great recipe for grilled pork loin chops. With a pepper and tomato topping, sounds scrumptious.

Pork loin chops can be a little dry without a good topping like this one.

5 stars. Voted up interesting and useful. Pinned.

Susan, you always have the best looking recipes. Great layout and photos! Good to know that the George Foreman grill now has removable plates. Dishwasher safe? I had an old one years ago, but it was very hard to clean. Great job!
