For help and tips on preparing these Iowa Pork Chops or Smoked Pork Chops, see our Cooking & Serving Instructions.
Our Bacon-Wrapped Pork Loin Chops are delicious grilled or baked. Follow these simple instructions for your preferred method. To ensure the best results, do not overcook. Using a meat thermometer is recommended. They are ready to eat when the internal temperature reaches 145°.
HOW TO PREPARE: If frozen, thaw in the refrigerator. Before cooking, allow them to come up to room temperature, approximately 30 minutes. Brush both sides of loin with an oil and season.
Grilling: Pre-heat your grill setting temperature to medium to medium high heat. Place prepared loins over direct heat and grill approximately 3-4 minutes until you are able to easily turn them over. Brown the second side for approximately 2-3 minutes. Remove from direct heat and continue to cook until the internal temperature reaches 140-145°. Let rest 10 minutes before serving.
Baking: Preheat your oven to 400°. Place prepared pork loin in a baking dish. Place in oven and cook 10 minutes. Remove from oven and turn over. Reduce oven temperature to 350° and continue baking for an additional 10-15 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 140-145°. Let rest 10 minutes before serving.
