Mmm grilled pork chops…one of my all time favorite meals.  Honestly, I think just a plain-jane hunk of pork on the grill is still delicious, even without marinades and glazes and what-not.  However, those marinades and glazes can add LOTS of flavor and really seal in the juices to make the meat even more tantalizing.

I think I have shared (many times) about my love for brown sugar.  I gravitate towards recipes on pinterest with “brown sugar” in the title.  When I was little and wanted a snack, I would go into the pantry and sneak spoonfuls of brown sugar.  Mom, if you’re reading this, sorry I ate all your brown sugar…but it was worth it.

The brown sugar glaze gives the perfect touch of sweetness to the savory grilled meat.  This is a perfect weeknight meal because it only takes about 20 minutes to make.  Plus, it’s a weight watchers recipe, which always makes me feel better about what I’m eating.  Hopefully wherever you live, you will have some beautiful weather soon where you can grill these amazing pork chops!

    • It’s actually a seasoning blend, not a sauce You could substitute it with any seasoning you like, really McCormick has a couple of steak or chicken seasonings, and they also have flavors like Garlic & Herb or Rosemary & Sundried Tomato I think the generic “steak seasoning” has a less potent flavor though, which is good for these pork chops because the glaze should be in the spotlight!

      You could try using grape juice or even chicken broth. It might change the flavor slightly, but it would still be good!

      Hi Neec,

      The wine creates the base for the sauce that you brush on the chops. It also adds flavor and richness. But don’t worry if you don’t like the wine because it doesn’t really taste the same once it’s cooked into the sauce. I hate the taste of wine but love this sauce!
