Recipe by CabinKat
READY IN: 1hr 10mins
YIELD: 6 Chops




  • Remove chops from store packaging, pat dry with paper towels. Cut (3) 1/2" slits near the outer edge of each chop. Season each chop with salt, both sides, rubbing salt into meat. Place on sheet pan covered with parchment paper or wax paper. Place in freezer for 30 minutes to an hour. Chops need to be firm but not completely frozen.
  • In meantime, mix 2 tablespoons butter, brown sugar, & pepper in small bowl, set aside. DO NOT put in fridge.
  • Mix 2 tablespoons butter, chives, mustard, & lemon zest in another bowl and refrigerate until solid. NOTE: You can do this a day ahead of time.
  • Preheat grill and oil (with vegetable oil) grates. While grill is heating remove chops from freezer. Pat dry again with paper towels, baste both sides with butter, brown sugar mixture.
  • Once grill is hot place chops on and grill 3-4 minutes each side. Meaty part of chop should face center. Remove from grill and dollop with chive butter. Cover gently and let sit for 5 minutes. Serve and enjoy.
