Baked or grilled?

Which is healthest?
Any ideas on a rub or marinade or something for flavor to put on boneless butterfly pork chops?
With everything going on, I have to start watching everything I do and eat. Once I get with the Cardiologist, I can get a list of things from him, but, until then, I need an idea for the chops.

Any reason you are butterflying the pork chops? Just curious.

Horseradish Crusted Pork Chops

These are great - but I use the thicker pork chops and don't butterfly - they are very tender!

I guess I don't buy pork chops enough! lol They don't have just a pocket right? They are truly butterflied? If you say they are butterflied then I won't go into a long drawn out stuffing/filling for them.

Nope, no pocket. I could still do the stuffing, I could fold them back over and hold them together with toothpicks, right?
I like the horseradish crust looks really good. I don't know if dh will like it or not, but I sure would :o)

You sure could. I think that's why they sell them butterflied.

Also, keep in mind that pork is considered a very lean meat if you stick with loin and tenderloin cuts.

cheep pork

If the only reason you got them is because there on sale then why not just buy a pork loin? you will save about 1.00 a pound and you can cut them the way you want..butterfly, american, waifer, what ever...

If your refering to too much fat in your diet then I would recommend smaller portions of protein.Either method is fine
but on the grill with a little smoke from apple wood is nice.

Actually, I've wanted to get them, but, they are always too expensive to get. This is the first time that I have caught them on sale. We get tenderloin all the time and wanted a change.
