Grilled Maple Chipotle Pork Chops

Juicy Pork Chops grilled to absolute perfection and smothered with a simple 3-ingredient Maple Chipotle sauce. Trust me, you’ll want this sauce on everything! *Also Instructions for skillet method*



My bestie shared this Pork Chop recipe with our family many years ago and we all fell in love with it. It’s one of those meals we make time and time again and everyone always raves about it!

I especially love recipes with bold flavors, that take minutes to cook, and only use a few ingredients. That’s exactly what Grilled Maple Chipotle Pork Chops are. Mouth watering good, and you won’t believe how easy they are to make.

I use tender boneless pork chops for a leaner meat option. The sauce is so easy and has the perfect sweet, smoky, spicy flavor. These chops served with mashed sweet potatoes and extra maple chipotle sauce is absolute heaven!

Ingredients For Grilled Maple Chipotle Pork Chops:

  • Pork chops- 6 boneless (1/2 inch thick) pork loin chops, or 4 large bone-in pork loin chops.
  • Barbeque sauce- Use your favorite store-brand or homemade BBQ sauce.
  • Maple syrup- I use pure maple syrup but if pancake syrup is what you have, that will work.
  • Chipotle peppers in adobo- I use 2 peppers, seeded. If you want it super spicy, leave in some of the seeds. Also add a touch of the adobo sauce from the can for extra smokiness.

What Is The Best Pork For Pork Chops?

Pork chops are the most popular cut of pork. All pork chops come from the loin. Boneless pork loin chops and Bone-in pork loin chops are standard when it comes to grilling, searing and baking. The most important thing to remember when cooking pork chops is to watch the temperature so they come out juicy and tender. Nobody wants a dry piece of meat.

Can I Use other meat for this recipe?

Yes! Chicken, salmon, and shrimp work great with the maple chipotle barbecue sauce.

My Favorite Store-Brand BBQ Sauce:

We love Stubs and Sweet Baby Rays. Both brands are gluten free and have great flavor for the price. If you’re feeling ambitious, we love this homemade BBQ sauce.

How To Make Grilled Maple Chipotle Pork Chops:

Step 1. Combine barbecue sauce, maple syrup, chipotle peppers, and adobo sauce in a small bowl.

Step 2. Season pork chops evenly with salt and pepper on both sides.

Step 3. Grill over medium heat using an indoor grill pan or outdoor grill for 20-25 minutes, turning once. The thickness of the pork chops will determine how long to cook them. The internal temperature should reach 145℉ using an instant read thermometer.

Step 4. Baste pork chops with half of the sauce the last 5-minutes of grilling.

Step 5. Remove from heat and let pork chops rest 5-minutes before slicing. Serve with the extra sauce.

Skillet Method:

  1. Follow instructions from the grilling method for sauce and seasoning pork chops.
  2. Heat a large skillet to medium high heat and add 2 tablespoons of olive oil.
  3. When oil is hot and just starting to ripple, add the pork chops. For 1/2-1 inch thick pork chops, sear for 4-5 minutes per side or until internal temperature reaches 145℉.
  4. Once cooked, brush with half of the sauce. Remove from the heat, cover, and let set for 5-minutes. Serve with extra sauce.


What To Serve With Grilled Maple Chipotle Pork Chops:

We like to serve these chops with regular russet mashed potatoes, or mashed sweet potatoes. We love to put the extra sauce over the potatoes as well as the pork. It’s so good! Honestly, any kind of starch would be great served with this pork.

Notes

Tips:
Other meat options- Chicken, salmon, and shrimp are great options if you don’t like pork. 
Resting meat- It’s important to rest the meat for 5-10 minutes after the cooking time. This will give it time to redistribute the juices so the meat isn’t dry.
