Grilling pork chops on a cedar plank infuses them with so much smoky flavor and helps keep them from drying out.
- 2 cedar planks
- 1 pound pork loin center cut boneless chops, seasoned with salt and pepper
- 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 cup chicken stock
- 1/4 teaspoon granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
- 2 tablespoons butter
- salt and pepper
- First, fill a baking dish halfway with water. Submerge the cedar planks and let them soak for a few hours.
- In a medium saucepan, combine the vinegar, stock, sugar, and parsley. Bring it to a boil and then reduce the heat and let it simmer for 10 minutes, or until it’s reduced by half.
- While the sauce is simmering, preheat an outdoor grill to high heat. Once the sauce has reduced, add the butter and whisk until it’s melted. Keep the sauce on low to keep warm.
- Place the cedar planks on the grill, leaving some room to sear the pork chops. Place the pork chops directly on the grill and let them cook on one side for 1-2 minutes. Flip them over and let them sear on the other side for another minute or so. Transfer the pork chops to the cedar planks, close the lid, and let them cook for 8-10 minutes or until the internal temperature is at least 150 degrees.
- Turn the grill off and carefully move the pork chops from the cedar planks to a platter or plate. Let them rest for a couple of minutes.
- To serve, either slice the pork chops or serve them whole. Spoon the apple cider vinegar sauce over the top.
