Ingredients

  • 4-6 pork chops
  • olive oil (enough to coat the chops)
  • 2 tbsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • juice of half a lemon
  • salt and pepper to taste

How to Make It

1.

Generously coat each pork chop with olive oil to ensure they stay moist and get a nice sear on the grill. Sprinkle both sides of each pork chop with salt, pepper, oregano, and paprika. Make sure the seasoning is evenly distributed for the best flavor.

2.

Heat your charcoal grill to a medium-high heat. Charcoal grills are preferred for this recipe as they impart a rich, smoky flavor that complements the herbs and spices. Place the pork chops on the hot grill. Cook the chops, flipping them every 1-2 minutes to ensure even cooking and to prevent burning. As they cook, sprinkle a little more oregano on top for an extra burst of flavor. Continue grilling until the pork chops reach an internal temperature of 145°F (63°C) for medium doneness. This should take about 10-15 minutes, depending on the thickness of the chops.

3.

Remove the pork chops from the grill and let them rest on a plate for about 5 minutes. Resting allows the juices to redistribute throughout the meat, making the chops more tender and flavorful. Just before serving, sprinkle the pork chops with a bit more oregano and a generous squeeze of fresh lemon juice. The lemon juice adds a bright, tangy flavor that perfectly balances the richness of the pork.

4.

These Grilled Greek Pork Chops pair wonderfully with a variety of side dishes. Consider serving them with a classic Greek salad, roasted vegetables, or a side of tzatziki sauce. For an extra touch, garnish the pork chops with fresh herbs such as parsley or dill, and a few lemon wedges for additional zest.
