Recipe: Grilled Rosemary Pork Chops

Boneless pork chops marinated in a soy sauce/brown sugar/rosemary marinade and grilled to perfection

Grilled Rosemary Pork Chops Ingredients

  • 1 cup soy sauce

  • cup water

  • 6 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 2 tablespoons dried rosemary, crushed

  • 4 boneless pork chops

How to Make Grilled Rosemary Pork Chops

  1. Whisk together the soy sauce, water, brown sugar, and rosemary in a bowl, and pour 1/2 of the marinade into a resealable plastic bag. Add the pork chops, coat with the marinade, squeeze out excess air, and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours. Set the remaining marinade aside.

  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat, and lightly oil the grate. Remove the pork chops from the marinade, and shake off excess. Discard the remaining marinade.

  3. Place pork chops on the grill and cook until the pork is no longer pink in the center, brushing occasionally with the reserved marinade, 4 to 5 minutes on each side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

Grilled Rosemary Pork Chops Reviews

  • This is so easy and very tasty, my very fussy family even liked it. I added a bit of fresh ginger the second time I made it- awesome

  • Delicious I used fresh rosemary and added fresh thyme, along with a clove of minced garlic. Only marinated about 1 hour and it was still wonderful Will definitely make again

  • This recipes is delicious. I changed it a bit, I only add a little bit more than half a cup of soy sauce since I didnt have anymore. Besides when using soy sauce I always try not to use the exact amount since to much soy sauce is to salty. Did use the right amount of the other ingredients. I was able to marinate 6 chops. Instead of grilling chops I browned them on the stove top and poured in the remaining marinate. Let them simmer until the marinate became a glaze. They were delicious. Tip eat them warm cause after words they get to dry.

  • I was worried about the soy sauce being overpowering, but it wasnt, the pork was so good, and flavorful.

  • Great recipe, but instead of using just soy sauce, try using 1/2 cup Dale steak marinade, which is mostly soy sauce with some ginger and garlic already mixed in. Add 1/2 cup water to dilute because this stuff is pretty concentrated. Add some fresh diced rosemary and garlic. Delicious

  • This is a great recipe Some folks mentioned it being too salty so I used just a little less than a cup of Low-Sodium soy sauce. I also added 2 cloves of fresh garlic and half of a small onion to the marinade... the cut of pork chop I used was ribeye boneless and it was VERY tender... even hours later when it was reheated

  • My wife and I made this with bone in chops. We added slightly more brown sugar. It was so delicious we laughed at eachother while after dinner we picked up the bones and tried to nibble the meat off of them. Absolutely delicious

  • Quick, Easy, Delicious I used thinner boneless center chops and grilled them inside on the cast iron gas range top grill (care of Bobby Flay). Even the sometimes picky princess (aka our 13 year old daughter) loved them.

  • I made this last night for dinner and my family enjoyed it. The pork chop was tender and juicy. I started with just 4 tbsp. of brown sugar and I added about 1 tbsp. of minced garlic. I tasted the marinade before adding the pork and found it plenty sweet with just the 4tbs of brown sugar. I only marinated the pork for about and 1 in the fridge I took the meat out of the fridge and let it sit on the counter for about 20 min. It was too cold to grill so I used my grill pan the get the grill marks and then put the meat in a 350 degree oven for about 12-15 min and it turned out great. Will make this again.

  • This is so yummy I grew up eating pork chops cooked under the broiler with lots of salt and pepper. I love them that way. But this recipe has such great flavor and gives me a chance to use the fresh rosemary from my garden. Weve had it a couple of times now. Great flavor and so easy

  • Looks like my review is in the minority here....but I followed this recipe exactly and although the chops were moist I found the soy made the chops way to salty ( and Im a salt lover ) and the rosemary was way to over powering for me and my families taste.

  • This was a winner So easy and good. I added fresh ginger, and used fresh rosemary. I cut back on the soy...b/c of sodium, but it still turned out excellent

  • Simple, quick & delicious marinade and great grilling instructions. next time i may try less soy sauce

  • EASY & TASTY This recipe was so easy to put together and the end result was juicy, well seasoned pork chops. I did not change a thing. Thank you Steve B for sharing such an EASY & TASTY recipe

  • I LOVED this recipe. I only had 1/4 cup of soy, but I used another 1/4 cup terriyaki and 1/4 cup water and then added a little evoo (It seems to hold moisture in w/ my chicken marinades), and still used 2 tbsp rosemary and 5 tbsp brown sugar. We LOVED it...I am only sorry I had nibbled on crackers beforehand, b/c I couldnt eat all mine. :(

  • Extremely easy to make and the flavor complimented the pork chops perfectly. Delicious, quick and cheap, I couldnt ask for more

  • These were tasty and Ill make again. Ill use less rosemary (personal preference); I used fresh rosemary. I used 1/2 cup of soy sauce and made up the difference in liquid with chicken broth. Like others, added some garlic and ginger, too. I also used six thick boneless pork chops.

  • These pork chops are so good. My entire family loves them, even my three year old.

  • Cant wait to put these on the grill. The weather wasnt in my favor tonight. Baked these and served with rice, sauted onions, and garlic. That was the perfect match for this cooking style. YUM The grill would have brought out the sweet more, but this was great in the oven as well. The grill will get the full 5 stars for this recipe. Thanks for sharing

  • I am a huge fan of pork chops I am also a huge fan of soy marinades and rosemary, separately. But this combination just didnt work for me or my family. The marinade completely overpowered the pork flavor. I guess I like my marinades to be more subtle. Also, as I was eating it, I couldnt actually figure out if I liked the flavor or not. I will not use a soy sauce and rosemary combination again.

  • Have to make again soon - used fresh rosemary and thought the pork was outstanding Thanks

  • This was great the pork chops came out so moist and easy I love the flavor

  • BF said these were the best tasting chops

  • Absolutely delicious

  • Great recipe Everyone loved the flavor, used bone in pork chops, added some garlic and thyme. My wife wants to try this on chicken breasts next.

  • Simple, tasty, and easy....I used fresh rosemary....other than that exactly as written...very nice caramel color from the sugars and super flavor Dont overcook

  • The chops tasted like soy sauce. We like soy sauce so that was ok. They werent bad but they werent great. Next time I would follow some of the changes other reviewers made, including adding some ginger and garlic, fresh rosemary, and maybe some other liquid to dilute the soy sauce.

  • Good w/ pears, onions

  • I make up multiple batches of marinade-style recipes like this, and found this especially well suited to freezing. Even after omitting water, the amount of marinade is plenty to season 12 chops divided between 3 bags. To use marinade as glaze, I pour it into a saucepan and boil for a minute while the chops grill. Although fresh ginger and garlic make tempting additions, I like this without. We put Asian and teriyaki flavors in other recipes, this is special because it is different. Am setting up plans now to make up more batches with friends this weekend.

  • This tasted good but the marinade ruined my natural bristle pastry brush. I had to throw it out. I washed it so many times but the sticky marinade would not come out.Edit: I made this again. I dont think it takes on a good flavor unless its marinated overnight. This time I had marinated it in the morning & it wasnt as favorable as last time when I had marinated overnight. I did use a silicone pastry brush this time & had no problem with stickiness in it. That being said, I dont see a point to basting them while cooking, I dont feel it adds much to warrant standing there, repeatedly basting the pork chops.

  • This recipe was delicious I used fresh rosemary from the garden, lemon juice, and drizzled some clover honey over the top allowing only an hour to marinate. Despite the limited time allowance due to last minute meal preparation it was the perfect combination of sweet and fresh Paired with rice it was best new recipe I tired in a while. I would recommend this recipe to a friend.

  • These were very simple and very good

  • I have a hard time making flavorful chops. I made the recipe as is and used boneless 1 inch chops and grilled them for 6 minutes a side. These were delicious

  • Not half bad, a big hit with the family. Great with baked beans

  • This was easy and delicious. Made these for friends and had great reviews. Cant go wrong for grilling

  • This is a great marinade. I used low sodium soy sauce and added some minced onion and garlic. I will definitely make this again.

  • I have never reviewed anything before but this deserves my review. It was amazing My kids even enjoyed this and they hate everything. Cant wait to have grilled pork chops again.

  • I used a bit more water than soy sauce and added about 1-1 1/2 shots of Jim Beam and it was a HUGE hit Thanks for the recipe

  • Followed recipe verbatim and our pork chops turned out fabulously juicy and flavorful Thanks so much

  • If it looks and smells like alot of rosemary its probly the right amount so go with it.... also marinade for an hr and used more lime juice = Beauty chop.Left overs used in greek wrap and it was bomb with tzatziki feta onions and lettus. Boom

  • Very good. Ive never cooked pork chops on the grill before and now I dont think I will cook them any other way. These were so tender, juicy and flavorful. My family really enjoyed them. Definately a keeper. I finally found a way to make pork chops that arent dried out.

  • Good, but nothing unusual or special about it

  • Awesome recipe... Instead of marinating I baked the pork chops in the marinade in the oven for 1hr at 350 (turning over halfway through)

  • Loved this Great on the grill. Lots of flavor

  • I did not include thyme and added a slice of ginger chopped. It was awesome

  • It was delicious I made it last night after looking for something NEW to do for dinner. It was SUPER easy to make and so tasteful My husband only had one complaint - that I didnt make more

  • Wow These are amazing By far the best recipe for grilling pork chops Ive ever tried.

  • We dont like to grill often, so we made the same marinade (adding a tablespoon of chopped garlic and a tablespoon of time, as one of the below reviewers recommended), scored both sides of the pork chops, and let it marinate for six hours. Then we cooked them--carefully--in the pan, and they came out AMAZING. Tender, flavorful--everything combined beautifully. Only one caution--we didnt find them to be too salty, but we really enjoy salty foods. Those who are less into salt or are watching their sodium might want to cut down the amount of soy sauce used.

  • Very tasty pork chop recipe.

  • The flavor of these chops was really good. The only thing was that were so juicy that I couldnt really tell if they meat was finished cooking, which made me feel uneasy about eating it. I would definately use the meat thermometer

  • Gotta say - LOVE this recipe

  • This was great Initially I was concerned about the amount of soy sauce, but it did not overpower. Added a nice salty flavor that complimented the pork well.

  • Awesome i added cumin also, marinated for 6.5 hrs, then grilled....tasty

  • These were outstanding. I didnt cook them in the oven and I didnt marinate them for hours, but I shake em around in a plastic bag in the marinade for like 20 minutes. My friend that ate them was impressed, and when I ate the leftover the following day, it was even tastier.

  • Pretty good. I thought it would be lacking by only having few ingredients. Better than I thought.

  • The whole family loved this recipe.I saved the marinade to create a sauce by first straining the marinade and then bringing to a boil; boiled 3 minutes; skimmed off foam and then thickened with cornstarch. Very good

  • These were excellent I used thin boneless pork chops which can dry out on the grill, and they were great

  • Very good, moist and juicy Excellent flavors. Thanks

  • Absolutely delicious Would not change anything

  • I made this used all ingredients with like lil over half cup of soy sauce, added bit of Worcestershire sauce, 3 cloves of garlic, some chopped onions in marinade. Let it marinade for lil over an hour then grilled it over the stove. Had bones so it cooked bit longer. Kids even loved it n asked for more Unbelievable Rosemary is bit different for us but I feel like weve been missing out. Thanks

  • Good. Get thicker cuts so that it can stay juicier in the middle.

  • It was ok but I had to add my own things to make it more flavorful.

  • Turns out great as long as you add about 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger. One fat garlic clove, pressed, also enhanced it. With those changes its super good, and the soy sauce is not at all overpowering; for those who found this too salty, I used low-sodium soy sauce and that worked just fine. I did not add any extra salt, but it was not too salty either. Just right. Marinated three hours.

  • Love the way these ingredients compliment eachother. Weve tried this recipe pan frying bone in pork chop at low heat and its delicious.

  • I hate to be one of the very few naysayers in the bunch, but I too didnt care for this recipe. The texture of the meat was altered bc of the several-hour salt-bath (soy sauce) and the flavors didnt seem to come alive as the recipe stands. It could have benefited from fresh grated ginger, orange zest, and scallions instead of rosemary. Also the marinade was far too much volume for the meat. I think swapping balsamic for the soy might have brought out the rosemary more.

  • I have made it twice the first time it did come out a bit two salty, but the second time not so much. this what i did i mixed the brown sugar, rosemary with 1 and a half teaspoons of white pepper, 1 tablespoon of grated ginger (fresh) , 1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard then in a separate bowl i mixed the soy with the water then slowly added the soy/water well blending it into the brown sugar blend. before putting the pork in the marinade i pounded the pork to make it soft the rubbed a notch warmer then warm honey into the pork. honey has a special ability that will tenderize and sweeten as well as balance the texture and seasonings . its basically like a bridge for the meat and seasonings.

  • Really really good And I didnt even have time to marinate the pork for that long. Still great flavor.

  • I will probably be making this lots, since its the first recipe for pork chops Ive found that actually tenderizes well. My husband and I loved this - it puts pork back on my menu

  • I made this for dinner it was good the next timeIm going to marnate it longer

  • Delicious. No reason to set aside half of the marinade though. Just need a few tablespoons to brush on the pork chops while cooking them.

  • I followed the directions except for substituting coconut aminos for soy sauce to make it gluten-free. This was yummy and the pork chops did not dry out. I used a meat thermometer rather than a timer. We will have it again, but it wont go into weekly rotation.

  • Wow Big hit with my family. I cooked them on a griddle over the stove instead of the grill and they were fantastic

  • It was amazing I added 2 extra tablespoons of brown sugar, some garlic and half an onion to the bag mixture. Six minutes on each side with our BBQ. Thank you for this recipe Its now a weekly meal for our family.

  • This recipe was seriously delightful. We cut the recipe in half, marinated our pork all day, and they turned out really moist and tasty. We also added just under a 1/4c of vinegar to help soften the meat.

  • I had 2 chops and I actually 1/4tered the recipe. Agave syrup instead of sugar. 1:1 ratio. Excellent

  • Very very unique flavor. I was so-so on it,but bobby liked it.:)

  • I used half cup regular soy sauce and one cup water. I added some garlic and black pepper. It was still a bit too salty for my taste, but was succulent and juicy. I also used fresh rosemary. Ill keep looking for a better recipe.

  • This was a delicious recipe We added garlic to the marinade as well and let it marinate overnight. It was a bit cold out to grill, so we baked it in the oven and it turned out great. The three of us finished all of them. I found the marinade made too much, so we threw it in the freezer to use for next time we make these. Which will be pretty soon

  • Excellent flavor...was skeptical about the amount of rosemary, thought it would be overwhelming, but REALLY delicious. Marinaded chops all day. Served with vermicelli noodles and a veggie stir fry (you could easily use the reserved marinade as sauce for the stir fry...we didnt need it grilling the chops)

  • Excellent recipe, definitely will make again

  • A lovely blend of flavors from the marinade, this easy recipe will be a mainstay for the BBQ. Delicious

  • This was good. I think thicker pork chops would have made a difference.

  • This was amazing. I added 2 cloves of garlic and some fresh ginger along with the use of fresh rosemary. Also I reduced the remainder of the marinade with a little cornstarch which really turned out great. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

  • This was awesome. I marinated for 8 hrs. Fantastic flavor & its an attractive dish.

  • I gave this a 4 because I revised the recipe a little bit. I would have given it a 5 otherwise. I used a thick bone-in pork chop, made a pocket and stuffed it w/fresh rosemary, sage and basil. I added sliced fresh ginger and fresh garlic to the marinade. Husband says it was "outstanding."

  • Made this for dinner tonight and the hubby loved it. Like others, I added garlic and served with roasted veggies. He loved it I would have even tossed the veggies in the glaze but definitely will next time.

  • I made this for my wedding rehearsal and everyone loved it Took a full boneless pork loin and cut my own chops to about 3/4 to 1 inch thick. Marinaded overnight (11-12 hrs) then grilled them right before serving. My dad said the only way to make them better was to wrap them in bacon

  • Amazing so tasteful and easy to make. I kept on brushing the remaining marinade while on the grill and they turned out really juicy.

  • After growing up with my grandmother cooking pork chops the same old way (breaded, salt, pepper, and dry dry dry) I figured Id finally try preparing them myself. I too was afraid that the marinade would be to salty, but it was perfect and kept the chops moist. Instead of brushing the remaining marinade, I used it in a reduction sauce with half a cup of merlot, chopped onion, and thyme. And for my sides, I grilled up some broccoli in canola oil with cracked salt & pepper, and mashed potatoes seasoned with oregano, sour cream and parmesan cheese.I will definitely be making this again in the future. Cant wait to cook it for my parents

  • Too salty. The chops were tender but the saltiness of the soy sauce was overpowering. Will not be repeating this one.

  • The only change I make is to use fresh rosemary since I have a huge bush or it Fantastic pork chops

  • Pan fried in remainder of marinade, letting it reduce, then pouring what was left over the chops. Incredible

  • We made this last night exactly as penned and the family gave it a 10 My two boys, 3 and 8, ate this right up Although I can see adding a bunch of other complimentary flavors to this (i.e., ginger, garlic) I think it is nice as is--otherwise you might just end up making a mongolian sauce instead of allowing the rosemary to shine. Thanks

  • Very simple recipe - I just reduced the soy sauce by a tiny bit and even so found it a bit too salty for my taste. Otherwise tastes good. Have heaps of marinade left over - couldve marinated twice the amount of pork chops with it... Next time will add more fresh herbs than just rosemary.

  • This has become one of my go-to easy weeknight recipes - only change I usually make is to add some garlic. Start them marinating in the morning and theyre ready to go in next to no time that night. Such great payoff for very little work. They are, of course, best on the grill, but theyve also done very well on the stove.

  • Easy and tasty. I even marinated for only 45mins and taste great served it with potato broccoli salad with lemon dressing

  • I only marinated for an hour because I was too hungry. Lol. Also, I added way less water. It was so delicious Im definitely making it again.

  • Delicious, simple pork chops. These were a hit with the kids and adults.

  • This was a wonderful dish and very easy to make. I made it just as it read and it was perfect.
