Lemon Hummus Crusted Porkchops

Happy Hummus Day!

Did you even know it was National Hummus Day?! This is turning into quite the celebratory day in our house, especially since starting to work with Sabra over the past few years. They keep our bellies full of their delicious hummus and dips, and I’m so excited to be sharing a new recipe with you guys today!

Instead of just taking my favorite lemon hummus and dipping chips and celery and broccoli in it like usual, I decided we needed to try something new on the grill. Especially since our hands are full with this new little baby boy!! Anything we can throw on the grill for dinner is proving to be the easiest meal option, and I’m so excited with how these turned out.

We took some big, bone-in pork chops and marinated them in a mix of my favorite Lemon Twist Hummus, olive oil, a little vinegar, salt, and pepper. You don’t need much else when your marinade base starts with great hummus!

I love making quick marinades for grilling this time of year, and this was one of the easiest I’ve ever pulled together.

You could start with any flavor of hummus for the base and go from there. The roasted garlic would be fantastic on some chicken with a little balsamic vinegar, and I can’t wait to try some of the roasted red pepper on some pork or chicken, too.

  • 4 bone-in pork chops, about 1-inch thick
  • heaping 1/3 cup Sabra Lemon Twist Hummus
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tsp white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper


  1. Place the pork chops in a large bowl or ziploc bag.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix the hummus with the oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper.
  3. Pour the marinade over the pork and toss them until each one is coated. Let the meat marinate at least 30 minutes or longer.
  4. Heat your grill to medium, then cook the pork until no longer pink, about 7-10 minutes on each side, depending on thickness.

  1. To whom it may concern.

    Has anyone tried breading them after to hold in the flavor of the hummus. I’m curious to how the hummus could  burn off to liquid. Or by any chance used this same recipe by cooking at low temp in the oven? Any responses welcome want to learn knew ideas!

    Thank you for your time,
