  • Step 2

    Whisk olive oil, brown sugar, lemon juice, mustard, garlic, thyme, onion powder, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, mesquite seasoning, parsley, salt, and pepper together in a bowl and pour into a large resealable plastic bag. Add pork chops, coat with the marinade, squeeze out excess air, and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator, 6 to 8 hours.

  • Cook's Notes:

    Increase amount of marinade if cooking a larger portion.

    To grill chops, preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate. Grill chops until nicely browned on each side and the meat is slightly pink in the center, about 8 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the chop should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C). Let rest 5 minutes before serving.
