Garlic Herb Gilled Pork Chop

Garlic herb pork chops are a great summer after work dinner. I like to grab bone-in pork chops because I find them to be more flavorful than boneless.

If you have a good spice cabinet then throwing together a grilled dinner on a beautiful summer evening is a breeze. Try our garlic herb seasoning on pork or chicken.
