  • 4 bone-in pork chops
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • Zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme (or 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves)
  • 1 teaspoon salt, plus extra for seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, plus extra for seasoning
  • Optional: 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (for a hint of heat)
  • Fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish


  • Prepare the Marinade:
  • In a bowl, whisk together the Dijon mustard, lemon zest, lemon juice, minced garlic, olive oil, dried thyme, 1 teaspoon of salt, 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper, and red pepper flakes if using. This will create a flavorful marinade for the pork chops.
  • Marinate the Pork Chops:
  • Place the pork chops in a shallow dish or a large resealable plastic bag.
  • Pour the marinade over the pork chops, making sure each chop is well-coated. You can use a brush or your hands to evenly distribute the marinade.
  • Cover the dish or seal the bag and place it in the refrigerator. Allow the pork chops to marinate for at least 2 hours, but overnight marinating will yield the best flavor.
  • Preheat the Grill:
  • Preheat your BBQ grill to medium-high heat. Aim for a grill temperature of around 375°F to 400°F (190°C to 204°C).
  • Prepare the Pork Chops for Grilling:
  • Remove the pork chops from the marinade, allowing any excess marinade to drip off. Discard the marinade.
  • Season the pork chops lightly with additional salt and black pepper on both sides.
  • Grill the Pork Chops:
  • Place the pork chops on the preheated grill. Grill for about 4-5 minutes per side, or until the internal temperature reaches 145°F (63°C) for medium doneness. You can adjust the grilling time based on your preferred level of doneness.
  • Rest and Serve:
  • Once the pork chops are cooked to your desired level, remove them from the grill and let them rest for about 5 minutes. This helps the juices redistribute within the meat.
  • Garnish and Serve:
  • Sprinkle the grilled pork chops with chopped fresh parsley for a burst of color and added freshness.
  • Serve the pork chops alongside your favorite side dishes, such as grilled vegetables, coleslaw, or mashed potatoes.


  • Now, savor the delicious and flavorful grilled mustard, lemon, and garlic marinated bone-in pork chops with your loved ones.
    These marinated pork chops are sure to be a hit at your BBQ gathering, combining tangy and savory flavors with a hint of citrus and garlic, all enhanced by the grilling process.
