Can you grill stuffed pork chops?
Y-E-S, you absolutely can! And let me tell you, grilled stuffed pork chops are a culinary masterpiece! 🙌🏼
These Prosciutto & Asiago Cheese Stuffed Pork Chops are one of my all-time favorite summer meals. Inspired by the best-selling entrée at an Italian restaurant I worked at during college, they’re both simple to prepare and incredibly impressive. Every time I serve them, I feel like a gourmet chef, yet they come together quickly and effortlessly.
This recipe is all about quality ingredients, which are fundamental to Italian cooking. You’ll stuff bone-in pork chops with thinly sliced prosciutto and asiago cheese, marinate them in a simple balsamic marinade, and grill them to perfection. The cheese inside the chops melts, creating a gooey and flavorful center, while the pork remains juicy and tender thanks to the quick grill time.
These grilled pork chops have been a staple in my summer menu for over a decade, and everyone who has tasted them raves about their incredible flavor. With beautiful char marks, a gooey melted cheese center, and a perfect balance of savory and sweet flavors, these chops are simply irresistible!
How to Stuff Bone-In Pork Chops:
The trickiest part of this grilled pork chop recipe is stuffing the pork chops with prosciutto and asiago cheese. But fear not, it’s easier than it looks! Let me walk you through the process:
- Start by slicing a pocket into each pork chop, making sure not to cut all the way through.
- Stuff each pocket with a layer of prosciutto and asiago cheese.
- Press the edges of the pork chops together to seal the stuffing inside.
How to Grill Stuffed Pork Chops:
If you’ve never grilled stuffed pork chops before, don’t worry! It’s much easier than you might think. Once the pork chops are stuffed, the grill does all the work – it’s that simple!
- Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.
- Place the stuffed pork chops on the grill and cook for a few minutes on each side until they reach an internal temperature of 145 degrees F.
- Remove from the grill and let them rest for a few minutes before serving.
Did you know? It is a misconception that pork must be cooked until juices run clear and the meat is white! According to USDA & FDA Food Code standards, because of modern pork production practices, commercial retail pork is safe when cooked to an internal temperature of 145 degrees F, which will be a light blush pink color.

Prosciutto & Asiago Cheese Stuffed Pork Chops Serving Suggestions
Once the stuffed pork chops are grilled to perfection, it’s time to serve them up!
Serving suggestion: When I’m hosting guests, I like to cut each pork chop away from the bone and slice them into thin pieces, revealing the cheesy center. Finish with a drizzle of your favorite balsamic glaze or homemade balsamic reduction and a generous sprinkling of fresh herbs or crushed red pepper flakes.
