Recipe: Bacon-Wrapped Pork Chops

This quick and easy pork chop recipe is so versatile… it can be made on the grill, in a grill pan or under the broiler… it takes minutes to prepare and goes so well with just about any sides you want to make with it… perfect for those nights when time is short.

This recipe is from the people who know pork best…


The only change I made from their recipe was that I also seasoned the chops with a sprinkling of garlic powder … I love the light garlic flavor it leaves.

I made the ones pictured under the broiler… I had planned to make them on the grill but Mother Nature had other plans… if you’re looking for a nice brown seared look with grill marks … then grilling is the way to go… a grilling pan on top of the stove will brown them nicely but without the grill lines… all 3 methods result in absolutely delicious chops… but if you’re looking for a certain look… you need to choose your cooking method accordingly.

The best way to check the internal temperature of the chops is using a instant read meat thermometer.. see my previous post about thermometers.

The seasoned butter I used was Garlic Mustard Butter… you can find the recipe in my previous post.

While the chops are cooking you can leisurely make whatever sides you want… I nice way to cook after a hectic day!

Recipe: Bacon-Wrapped Pork Chops

All you need:

4 (6-7 oz.) pork loin chops, 1 ¼ inch thick
4 slices bacon, thick-cut
Garlic powder
Garlic Mustard Butter

All you need to do:

Dry the pork chops with paper towels and season generously with salt and pepper.

Sprinkle with garlic powder.

Wrap a piece of bacon around each chop and secure with a toothpick.

To Broil:

Broil 4 inches from the heat source for 6-7 minutes. Turn and continue broiling to desired doneness, approximately 5-6 minutes or until the internal temperature is at 160 degrees F.

To Pan Grill:

Heat grill pan over high heat. Add the chops and immediately lower heat to medium-high and cook for 6-7 minutes until nicely browned.

Turn the chops over and continue cooking for about 5-6 minutes until the internal temperature reads 160 degrees F.

To Grill:

Prepare grill and heat. Grill chops over direct heat for 6-7 minutes, turn and continue grilling for 5-6 minutes until internal temperature is 160 degrees F.

When meat is done cooking, remove the toothpicks and put a piece of Garlic Mustard Butter on each chop.
