How to make Pork Chops on the Blackstone

This is just the overview so you can see what you’re actually getting into here. When you are cooking, you’ll want to use the full recipe at the bottom of the page.


Mix marinade

Combine all the marinade ingredients together and add the pork chops. Let them marinate for 4 hours.



Preheat the griddle over medium heat.



Drain the marinade and pat dry with paper towels. Mix together the salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Season the pork chops on both sides.



Lay down some oil on the griddle and let it get good and hot. Put the chops down and leave them alone for a few minutes until the bottom is brown.

Flip, and let the other side brown. Check your temps using an instant-read thermometer and pull off the griddle once the internal temperature in the center reaches 135°F.


Rest & Enjoy

Let the pork chops rest, tented with foil, for 10-15 minutes before serving. Slice and enjoy! You can eat them plain, with bbq sauce, or as pictured with some Bachan’s, steamed rice, and broccoli.

Blackstone Pork Chops FAQ

Can you use bone in pork chops for this recipe?

Sure! Bone-in chops work just as well as boneless chops for this marinade and cooking method. Get whatever you prefer (or what’s on sale) and get cooking!

Can this dish be made in advance?

Not ideally, but if you have to, it can certainly be transported across town or something after it cooks. Undoubtedly, pork is a lean meat, so it is best eaten right after it comes off the griddle and rests. If you need to stretch that out another 20-30 minutes you’ll still have a delicious dish waiting for you at the end of that time. Make sure to keep things covered to keep it hot. Pork doesn’t love reheating.

What’s the best thing to do with leftovers?

The BEST thing to do is to try not to have any leftovers, but if you DO wind up with some, they work great in this Spicy Yaki Udon!

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Marinating Time 4 hours
Total Time 4 hours 20 minutes


Pork Chop Marinade

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced
  • 3 cloves minced garlic
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley

Pork Chops

  • 8 pork chops
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 tablespoons oil


  1. Combine all of the marinade ingredients in a large freezer baggie or a large flat-bottomed storage container. Whisk or mash the baggie together to combine. Add the pork chops and refrigerate the whole thing for 4 hours.
  2. Drain the marinade off of the pork chops and pat dry with paper towels.
  3. Preheat your Blackstone griddle over medium heat.
  4. Mix together the salt, garlic powder, and pepper. Season both sides of the pork chops.
  5. Put the oil down on the griddle. You can use less if you prefer. You just want a thin layer of oil on the griddle for the pork to cook in.
  6. Brown the chops on both sides. Remove from the griddle when the internal temperature reaches 135°F.
  7. Remove from the griddle and tent with foil and let the chops rest for at least 10-15 minutes. The internal temperature will rise by at least 5° in that time period.
  8. Serve hot with your favorite sides. Pictured here you see steamed rice, broccoli, and plenty of Bachan's and sesame seeds on top.
