Pork recipes start with pork chops, a basic grilling recipe that everyone standing over the coals should know how to master. While thick cut pork chops may be more appetizing, sometimes it is hard to pass up the deals on the thinner cut chops when you’ve got a house full of guests to feed. Thin and lean pork chops thaw out relatively quickly, making them perfect to keep on hand for last minute dinner grilling. At Grilling Companion, we have the recipes and tips to help make the thinner cuts be as tasty and moist as the thicker cuts.
