Awesome Grilled Pork Chops with Adobo Paste Rub

I don't post things like recipes very often but I just had to share this one with you! Especially since it's summer and lots of us are grilling. I don't know about you but I find that I tend to grill the same things over and over - mostly chicken. If you've never had grilled pork chops, you MUST try this!

This recipe is amazing! And it's so easy! 

Great with either bone-in or boneless pork chops, this rub can also be used on chicken, and you can adjust the heat by increasing the pepper flakes (or decreasing as the case may be). Even my eight year old (who is currently the pickiest eater in the world, by the way) couldn't resist giving these a try and gave them two thumbs up. Dude, trust me, try them, you will love them!


6 Thick-cut boneless pork chops

Adobo Paste (recipe below)

Adobo Paste

6 Thick-cut boneless pork chops

2 & 1/2 Tablespoons Olive Oil

2 Tablespoons Paprika

1 & 1/2 Tablespoons Oregano

1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon garlic power OR 1 Tablespoon fresh minced garlic

1/2 teaspoon ground Cumin

1 & 1/2 teaspoons Red Pepper flakes

2 teaspoons Lemon juice

1 & 1/2 teaspoons Kosher Salt

1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper


Mix all ingredients together except for the pork chops to form a paste.
Rub the paste all over each pork chop.
Grill on medium-low heat for about 10 minutes per side.
Check internal temperature with a meat thermometer so that they reach 160 degrees F in the center.
This recipe makes enough paste for what is shown in the photo - 6 thick cut pork chops.


  1. Well Laura, it looks like a winner to me! I love chops on the grill, but wanted something besides just seasoned, or barbecue sauce. I think even my husband will enjoy these!

  2. Mmmm...Those look delish!

  3. I have been designated BBQ chef for the weekend garden party so I am searching the web for inspiration. I must say I smailed when I saw that your ingredients for pork chops included 'Kosher salt' LOL I have printed it out and will get in some oregano, I think I have most other items in the cupboard. This will be a winner - my reputation is staked on it!
