This just might be one of the best pork chops you've ever had. Start with a double thick cut pork rib chop, add a flavorful spice rub and then grill to perfection. Because of the thickness of this chop it needs a little special care to get it cooked through the middle without burning the surface, but it really is as easy as it is delicious. These chops are served with a delectable creamy Dijon aioli. Add to this a side of grilled vegetables for the perfect meal.
