  • 4 pork chops boneless or bone-in, thick-cut recommended
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce reduced sodium recommended
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp ketchup
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp mustard powder or dijon mustard
  • 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper optional


  • Preheat an outdoor grill to high heat or 450°F (232°C).
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, brown sugar, ketchup, vinegar, mustard and olive oil.
  • Add the pork chops to the bowl and turn to coat completely. (Optional: Reserve at room temperature for 15-30 minutes or refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)
  • Remove the chops from the sauce and place on the grill. Discard the leftover sauce.
  • Place the pork chops on the grill.
  • Close the lid and cook for 2-3 minutes (to get grill marks, see note). Flip and cook another 2-3 minutes.
  • Move the chops to the upper rack to cook on indirect heat for 8-15 minutes longer (see note) until they reach an internal temperature of 145°F / 63°C.
  • Remove the chops to a plate and allow to rest covered with foil or a plate for 5 minutes before serving.


  • To get X- or diamond marks on the chops, use tongs to rotate 90 degrees after 90 seconds of grilling on each side.
  • Cooking time depends on thickness, and I recommend using an instant-read meat thermometer to check doneness. Once the internal temperature reaches the 145°F / 63°C, remove from heat.
