Cajun Seasoning Blend
Combine the cajun seasoning blend in a small bowl and set aside. (You can also use about a tablespoon of a store-bought blend; just add salt).
Pat pork chops dry with paper towels, then rub all sides with a little bit of olive oil. Sprinkle all sides with the cajun seasoning blend and rub it in. Set aside while you preheat the grill.
Heat an outdoor grill to medium heat; about 350-400 degrees F.
Grill pork chops for about 4-5 minutes per side. Flip them over when the chops easily release from the grill grates. Actual cooking time will vary depending on the thickness of your chops and the temperature of the grill. Internal temperature of the meat should reach at 140-145 degrees F.
Transfer to a plate and tent with foil. Rest 5-10 minutes before serving. Pork should reach an optimal 145 degrees F as it rests.
Depending on the size of the chops and the size of your appetite, you could get up to 6 servings from 4 large pork chops.
