I tried making Pork Chops again...BAM!

Last week I made Pork Chops, but even though they looked great, they tasted like cardboard.  They where cooked alright, but BLAND!

A couple of you, @Jeremiah and @Skiddymarker made some suggestions that I tried last night with pretty awesome results.  

I used a rub instead of trying to marinade, and I reverse seared the suckers.  The RS was a first time technique, but I think it is freaking great.  The chops came out tasting great, even though the marks where not exactly perfect. 

I am excited to try the RS with a Bone In Ribeye...

And here is the plate....

  • I prefer great steaks or chops over
    beautiful grill marks. Show or go?

    Looks great from here!  What kind of rub did you use?  


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg. 

  • But I was so close to having both, awesome taste and awesome marks!!! 

    And don't fool yourself, we all eat with our eyes first...well unless you are vision impaired, in which case, sorry, I was not trying to offend.

  • Grilled bok choy.  Marinated in Olive Oil, Soy Sauce, Red Chili Paste.  Grilled on each side for 3 minutes after the sear.  

    Pretty good for green stuff.

  • @berndcrisp I had to google Marty.  Was not disappointed.  Not exactly what I was expecting.

  • Here is the Rub.

    It was Zestfest 2014 this weekend here, so we went and tried a bunch of BBQ rubs and Hot Sauces...picked this up along with some others.

    I don't believe you offended. I'm not huge into grill marks but yours looks great. I'd plow through one.

    Grill marks don't make the meal, but they look kinda cool. Boneless, reverse sear pork chops.
