“Using a spice rub is a great way to punch up the flavor when grilling ordinary meats. These chops have an island flair with a rub containing olive oil, brown sugar, chili paste, cumin and ginger. Let the kids rub or massage it into both sides of each chop. Be sure they wash their hands before and after applying the rub. Please note: Time does not include 10 minute marinating time.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat grill to medium-high (350° to 400°). Stir together first 7 ingredients in a small bowl; rub evenly over both sides of pork chops. Let stand at room temperature for 10 minutes.
  2. Combine mayonnaise, apricot preserves, lemon juice and red pepper in a small bowl; set aside.
  3. Grill pork chops over medium-high heat 4 to 6 minutes on each side until pork is barely pink inside or a meat thermometer inserted into thickest portion registers 155°. Serve with apricot mixture.
  4. Side Dish Note: These are great with grilled pineapple slices. Slice fresh pineapple and grill over medium-high heat alongside the pork chops. Grill them only a minute or two on each side -- just until you see nice grill marks.
