"Tender full-flavored pork chops that are always a crowd pleaser. Great on the grill! Pat dry the meat before you put it on the grill for good grill marks. Also, use a meat thermometer to insure proper cooking."

Directions

  • Ready In

  1. Whisk the beer, wine vinegar, corn syrup, mustard, garlic, sage, salt, and black pepper together in a bowl; pour into a resealable plastic bag. Add the onion and pork chops, coat with the marinade, squeeze out excess air, and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for 12 hours.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat, and lightly oil the grate.
  3. Remove the pork chops and onions from the marinade and set aside on a platter. Drain the marinade through a fine-mesh strainer, discarding the strained liquid. Spread the garlic mixture caught in the strainer over the pork chops. Wrap the onions in aluminum foil.
  4. Cook the packet of onions and the pork chops on the preheated grill until the pork is no longer pink in the center, about 7 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

This recipe totally rocked! I have never had such tender juicy pork chops. The only thing I changed was maple syrup for the corn syrup (because I didn't have any corn syrup on hand). Thanks for a great recipe!

This really made a moist tender chop I added red pepper flakes and used dijon mustard and apple cider vinager and mayple syrup as thats what I had on hand and brined overnite. When I grilled I added a maple smokehouse sesoning...Im not a fan of pork but this ill eat any day.....

These are just great! Don't normally use corn syrup in a brine, but it imparted a bright, smoky note! Perfect grill food. Thanks for the recipe.
