  • 6 thick cut pork chops about 2 inches thick with the bone in
  • sea salt
  • fresh ground black pepper
  • Worcestershire sauce


  1. Place pork chops in a shallow baking dish. Add a few dashes of Worcestershire sauce and sprinkle on sea salt and black pepper. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for one hour to overnight.
  2. Remove pork chops from the refrigerator and allow to rest at room temperature for about 30 minutes before cooking.
  3. Place on a grill or grill pan that has been preheated to high heat or about 400 degrees and lightly brushed with olive oil or non-stick grill spray.
  4. Sear pork chops on each side for about 2-3 minutes to get defined grill marks. Reduce heat to 350 degrees or medium heat and cook until the internal temperature of the pork chop reaches 145 degrees. The thermometer should be inserted into the side of the pork chop away from the bone.
  5. Remove the pork chops from the grill and place into a shallow baking dish. Cover with aluminum foil and allow to rest for about 5 minutes to allow the juices to settle before serving.

  12. Robyn, you seem to have mastered the Japanese seasoning/cooking concept of “Umami”. This is basically including natural glutamines, such as balsamic vinegar and Worcestershire sauce, in your recipes. Umami elevates and enhances natural flavors with a piquant-ness that drives taste buds wild! I’ve loved every recipe of yours that I’ve tried! Thanks for sharing your wonderful dishes with all of us!
