  • 4 Porterhouse Pork Chops (or alternative cut)
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons za'atar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper
  • Lebanese Chopped Salad with Chickpeas - photographed on side


  1. Pre-heat grill or grill pan over medium-high heat.
  2. While grill is pre-heating, let pork chops sit out at room temperature. Brush each side of the pork chops with olive oil then sprinkle with equal amounts of za'atar, kosher salt and pepper.
  3. Place pork on the grill and let sit until a nice crust forms. (Note: Once the pork hits the grill, do not move for at least 6-7 minutes.)
  4. Flip pork to the other side and continue cooking until it reaches an internal cooking temperature of 145-160 degrees. The total time will depend on the thickness and type of pork chop you use.
  5. Remove pork from the pan and cover loosely with foil to keep warm. Let rest at least 3 minutes before slicing to ensure juicy pork.
