Pork in United States grocery stores is raised on Ohio and Midwestern farms. Farmers invite you to a traditional farm family meal – tender, juicy pork chops.

This video shares step-by-step instructions to help you grill pork chops perfectly! This meal takes 15 minutes to prepare. The key is to use a meat thermometer and cook your pork to 145 degrees F, which will still have a blush of pink in the center. Properly cooked pork chops are hard to beat on a long holiday weekend.
Parmesan Crusted New York Pork Chops Recipe
4 boneless New York (top loin) pork chops, about 1-inch thick
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons coarse salt
1 teaspoon black pepper, freshly ground
1/3 cup panko bread crumbs, (Japanese-style bread crumbs)
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
Brush pork with oil (or coat with cooking spray). Season with salt and pepper. Let stand for 15 to 30 minutes (Getting pork closer to room temperature will help prevent it from sticking to the grill. Food safety is critical). In a small bowl, mix panko and Parmesan together.
Prepare a medium-hot fire in grill. Place chops on grill and close the lid. Grill over direct heat for 4 minutes. Turn chops and sprinkle panko mixture over tops. Close lid and continue grilling for 4-5 minutes more, or until the topping is lightly browned and the internal temperature of the pork on a meat thermometer measures between 145 degrees Fahrenheit (medium rare) and 160 degrees Fahrenheit (medium). Remove from the grill and let rest for 3 minutes.
