Grilled Pork Chop Marinade

This easy pork chop marinade is designed for grilled pork chops, but it's equally good for baked pork chops! The balsamic vinegar leaves them sweet, tangy, and perfectly moist every time. Be sure to buy humanely raised pastured pork chops, which are better for you as well as for the environment! Check out the post for a referral to Butcher Box, a source I trust for the healthiest meats possible.

  • 3/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary chopped
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 boneless pork chops about 2 pounds


  • Add all the marinade ingredients into a bowl, and whisk to combine.
  • Add pork chops to a container with a lid, and pour the marinade over the top. Evenly coat the pork chops in the marinade, and then add to the refrigerator for 2 up to 24 hours.
  • Heat a grill over medium heat, and cook pork chops for about 10 minutes per side, until the internal temperature reaches 135º F for medium doneness. Cook longer for well done pork.



*Nutrition facts are based on less balsamic vinegar, since a lot of the marinade isn't consumed. This recipe is suitable for Keto diets.
To Bake: Preheat oven to 425º F. Add marinated pork chops to a lined baking tray, and bake for 30 minutes, flipping half way through, until the internal temperature reaches 135º F.
I highly recommend allowing the pork chops to marinate overnight. The vinegar soaks into the meat and makes it extra moist and tender.
