I know I’ve said this before, but pork meat is a little underappreciated at times. I cook it often and my family likes it, so today I decided to share with you my recipe for Dry Rubbed Grilled Pork Chops. This dry rub is pretty simple to prepare, with spices you already have in your pantry.

What I like about it is that is seasons the meat quickly (no need to marinate it for several hours), it isn’t messy and keeps the pork chops juicy.

Looking for more pork recipes? I have quite a few on the blog already. These Tender Pork Kebabs are so delicious! I love this One Pan Pork And Leek and also these One Pan Pork Chops With Balsamic Mushrooms and Onions.

Dry Rubbed Grilled Pork Chops for summer and grilling season

This summer has been pretty good for me. Weather is nice, the humidity hasn’t been extremely high around here, which means that I spend a lot of time outdoors.

And of course, I practice my favorite activity – grilling!

I enjoy using my grill and I never struggle with dinner recipe ideas in the summer. Everything is so quick and easy to make, unlike the colder months, when I need to pull out the slow cooker or wait for my dinner to cook for hours in the oven.
