Grilled Ribeye Chops with Mole Sauce

Grilled Ribeye Sauce with Mole Sauce

This recipe works well with any chop, bone-in or boneless, but increase the cooking time for the bone-in chops to about 4 minutes per side. The spicy Mexican-inspired sauce gives the chops a rich flavor, perfect alongside a rice mix and grilled corn on the cob.


  • 4 boneless ribeye (rib) pork chops, 1/4-inch thick
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup
  • 1/2 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • Oil for the grill


  1. In a small bowl, stir together ketchup, cocoa, garlic salt, cinnamon and cayenne pepper. Add water and stir until smooth.
  2. Prepare a medium-hot fire in the grill. Lightly oil the grill. Place chops directly over heat until underside is seared, about 3 minutes.
  3. Turn chops over; brush other side with mixture. Grill until the internal temperature of the pork on a meat thermometer measures between 145 degrees F. (medium rare) and 160 degrees F. (medium), about 2 to 3 minutes more.
  4. Remove from grill and let rest 3 minutes.
