Barbecue Rosemary Pork Chops

These delicious clean eating barbecue rosemary pork chops could be the most delicious thing to come off your grill this season!

While I try to limit my pork consumption, sometimes it’s a wonderful way to get a little variety in a clean eating plan. Especially when it’s cooked right.

Not to long ago, we got a new grill, and I’ve been grilling ever since. I just can’t get enough of it!

A single chops from this Clean Eating barbecue Rosemary Pork Chops recipe sits on a white background. It's beautifully caramelized with a tiny bit of the juices on the white plate.

I used to bake my pork in the oven and always came up with a bland, rubbery piece of something that was supposed to be meat. But the new grill changed all that. This was sooooo yummy!

  • lbs. pork chops (3 chops)
  • 6 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • salt and pepper


  • Unwrap the pork. I like to rinse mine off a bit, but that’s a personal choice. You don’t have to.
  • Prepare your rosemary. Simply run your fingers backwards over the tough stems to remove the leaf from the twig.
  • Put everything in a Ziploc bag and “moosh” it around to get the pork covered in oil and rosemary. Allow to sit in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
  • Toss those puppies on the grill until done. A meat thermometer should read 170 degrees F. when done.

  1. Yum! SO glad I found this site! Each and every recipe seems right up my alley, and I love that you include kids in your cooking adventures! I’ve got three and one of my goals is to teach them how to eat well.

  2. Are you sure you cooked your BBQ Rosemary Pork Chops for 30 minutes? I think it should be more like 3 to 5 minutes per side depending on the thickness.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Di – I’m sure. They were a good thickness. It was definitely 30 minutes.

  3. This recipe was incredible! I can’t believe how tasty the pork chops turned out using such simple ingredients. I was skeptical…but you were right! My husband RAVED about the pork chops. Even today, several days later, he is still talking about them. He just said “Those were probably the best pork chops I have ever eaten”. Thanks for the recipe!!!!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Amber – Fantastic!! I always love it when I covert a husband. They are the toughest critics. Especially with meat!

  4. graciouspantry says:

    That has actually changed as of late. I love pork and I do eat it more frequently now. Some folks question how clean pork can be considering how the meat is processed. But if you can afford to buy organic and pastured pork, it’s actually a pretty good choice in my opinion. Others may not agree.

  5. Being that I’m still a “newbie” in clean and cooking (age notwithstanding) is dried rosemary ok to use if fresh not around? And do you think this will work on chicken? Thanks!!!!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Yes and yes. 🙂 Enjoy!

  6. Is brown rice clean eating too? I would like to have that as a side dish along with some broccoli? In the brown rice I would use extra virgin olive oil infused with organic butter. Mmmm, it’s better than butter! Btw, the recipe sounds great and can’t wait to try it.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Yup, perfectly clean. Enjoy!

  7. These were amazing! My husband and all three kids LOVED them!!!!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Amber – Awesome!!! Glad you all enjoyed them!

  8. Dinner ruined. My common sense should have said about 12 minutes because when I say these are burnt….they can’t even be cut into. Next time about 10-12 minutes.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Veronica – I’m sorry. The thickness makes a difference. I changed the directions, but it did say to use a thermometer. Did you have one handy?

  9. Denise Passero says:

    I made these the other night. They are fantastic. You can add a little mustard and a little honey to the marinade. It caramelizes it so nicely! Rosemary is a favorite seasoning with me so this is perfect. AND it is easy to do!!! Love easy!!!

      Thanks Denise!
