Vermont Style Grilled Pork Chops

Yield: 4-6 Servings

8 Center Cut Pork Chops, 1 ½” Thick

4 Tablespoons Olive Oil

2 Tablespoons Maple Bourbon Mustard

2 Tablespoons Vermont Woods Seasoning

1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Bean Sea Salt

1/2 Teaspoon Cracked Telllicherry Peppercorns

When the leaves begin to turn and the nights begin to chill, we usually start to crave different flavors than we get from our summer fare, even though we aren’t quite ready to give up the grill and move inside for the winter. This recipe fits the bill perfectly at times like these, as we still get our grilled pork chops, but with flavor profile is perfect for fall. And we love to serve our Sausage and Apple Stuffing alongside as the perfect complement. When you try this menu, you may not just enjoy the flavors. You may even feel like you’ve been on a short vacation in New England. And there’s nothing better than that in the fall!


Grind seasoning blend in spice grinder. Place olive oil, mustard, seasoning blend, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Whisk to combine. Brush pork chops on both sides with the mixture. Cover and refrigerate for several hours while the meat marinates.


When ready to serve, remove meat from refrigerator and allow to come to room temperature while preheating the grill to 500 degrees.  Grill pork for 3-4 minutes on each side until a meat thermometer inserted in the center reads 145. Remove from grill, cover with aluminum foil, and let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
