  • 4 Smithfield Hickory Smoked Brown Sugar Boneless Center Cut Pork Chops
  • 4 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1/4 cup grated cheddar
  • 1/4 cup minced jalapeno
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  • Heat grill to a medium heat. Oil the grates.
  • Add the cream cheese, cheddar, jalapeno, garlic, and salt to a mixing bowl and stir well to combine.
  • Use a sharp knife to cut a deep pocket into the side of each pork chop. Spoon the filling evenly into each pork chop.
  • Use toothpicks to secure the cut side of the pork chop.
  • Grill for 5-7 minutes per side or until the pork chops reach an internal temperature of 145 degrees. Rest for 3 minutes before serving.



Removing the seeds and membranes from the jalapeno will remove much of the heat. Remove them for a more mild filling or leave them in for a spicier filling.
