Ginger Teriyaki Crusted Pork Chops

These Ginger Teriyaki Crusted Pork Chops are PACKED with flavor! Char Crust® Dry-rub Seasoning seals in the juices of the chop for optimal tender meat on the inside, and crusted with huge flavor on the outside.

I used Char Crust’s® Ginger Teriyaki seasoning on these chops, but they offer so many amazing flavors! I’ve had the opportunity to try almost all of them now, and there isn’t one I don’t like! Check out these Easy Grilled Wings, it’s an awesome way to try multiple seasonings.

The instructions for the dry rub are simple. Dredge the chops (or any protein) in the dry rub. It really does seal in the juices, and creates a super flavorful crust. I always get worried about seasonings being overly salty, especially if you’re completely covering the meat. These dry rubs are perfectly balanced. Big flavors and not too salty. Another bonus, no wait time like you would have for liquid marinades!

You can see in the photos that the rub creates a dark crust. The pork chops are not burnt, they just have a really delicious Ginger Teriyaki crust! I threw on the bell peppers and pineapple rings to serve along side, they make the perfect accompaniment.

It’s important to use a meat thermometer when grilling, especially pork. For perfectly cooked chops you’re looking for an internal temperature of 145 degrees. Make sure to allow the chops to rest for about 5 minutes after pulling off the grill. Serve these ginger teriyaki pork chops with your grilled veggies and pineapple, yum!

Bonus leftovers recipe:

I love making round two recipes to use up any leftovers. I used the same chops, sliced with the peppers and pineapple and threw them on some slider buns with pepper jack cheese, lettuce, and a sriracha mayo. So good!
