Best Broiled Pork Chops Recipe
These Broiled Pork Chops are tender and perfectly seasoned. They are a delicious and easy dinner your whole family will love.
There are many ways to cook a good pork chop. The key is knowing how to not overcook your pork. I’m going to show you how to fix tender and perfectly seasoned broiled pork chops.
I tested this recipe with both boneless chops and bone-in pork chops. I can tell you without a doubt that the bone-in pork chops are best cooked under the broiler. Just a few minutes prep and then a relatively short amount of broiling time yield mouth-watering pork chops your whole family will enjoy.
HOW TO BROIL PORK CHOPS?
Mix together the dry rub ingredients and evenly sprinkle both sides of the chops with the rub. Line the sheet pan with parchment paper. Place the cooling rack on top of the pan – this allows for heat circulation on all sides of the pork chops.
Place the oven rack in the upper third of the oven. Preheat the oven to BROIL (this is 500 degrees F in most ovens).
Place the pork chops on top of the cooling rack in the prepared sheet pan. Broil the pork chops, flipping once halfway through cooking time. Allow the pork chops to rest for three minutes before serving.
COOKING THICK PORK CHOPS
The ultimate goal of cooking thick pork chops is to have the internal temperature reach 145℉. Whether broiling smaller boneless chops or thicker ones, the approach is the same. The timing is what differs.
- Smaller chops approximately 4-5 minutes per side.
- 3/4 inch chops approximately 7-8 minutes per side.
- 1 inch chops approximately 9-10 minutes per side.
Hands down, my entire family’s favorite Pork Seasoning is this blend. It really is the Ultimate Dry Rub as we have used it on chicken, ribs, wings, steaks… Your name, it makes everything taste amazing.
HOW TO REHEAT PORK CHOPS?
Here are a few options for reheating pork chops
- Microwave: Reheat on power level 8 for 1 1/2 mins. Work in 30-second increments to add more time if needed.
- Oven: Preheat oven to 350℉. Place chops on a small roasting pan covered with aluminum foil. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until heated through.
- Stovetop: This method for reheating is not advisable.
SAUCES FOR PORK CHOPS
Part of the appeal of broiled pork chops is their brown, crisp surface. For this reason, some think it’s best not to cover them with sauce – rather serve it on the side.
I think sauce adds extra flavor and moisture – just like for baked pork. Ours is translucent enough to cover the chops and still see the brown crust, keeping the visual appeal. The same goes for compound butter!
Our sauce calls for honey, soy sauce, and lemon juice. But you can replace honey with brown sugar or even sugar-free maple syrup in order to make this a low carb meal. It all depends on your preferred type of sauce and personal choices.

HOW TO COOK PORK CHOPS WITHOUT A BROILING PAN?
You don’t need a broiling pan to broil pork chops properly.
A heavy cast-iron skillet is the answer! You can also use as a substitute a roasting pan, a cookie or baking sheet lined with foil for easier clean-up, or an aluminum baking tray.
HOW CAN YOU BROIL THIN PORK CHOPS?
Broiled thin pork chops are hard to cook evenly without them drying out. They can easily overcook inside before the outside reaches the desired degree of brownness. I don’t recommend it!
