Lemon Basil Grilled Pork Chops
I made this recipe back in late August when it was a great night to grill out. I love thick cut pork chops, so that's what I decided on after seeing some beauties at Whole Foods. This recipe looked fairly simple for a weeknight meal, and it ended up being so tasty and full of flavor. We cooked these perfectly, so the cooking time below is what we used personally.
Definitely give this a go while we're still enjoying great grilling weather!
Note: I halved the recipe and changed a couple of things up, so the below is my adaptation. Ingredients: 2 pork chops, thick cut and bone-in (you can use boneless if you prefer) 1 cup fresh basil, chopped 3 tb garlic, chopped 3-4 tb lemon juice (I used approximately 4 tb since I love lemon juice) 3/4 tsp pepper 1 tsp salt 2 tb olive oil Directions: Mix all of the ingredients, besides the pork chops, and remove the pork chops from the refrigerator. Slather the pork chops with the mixture on both sides and bring to room temperature for approximately 15-20 minutes. Meanwhile, heat your grill to medium heat (or medium high depending on your grill). Grill the pork chops approximately 7 minutes per side. This was the perfect time for us, as ours were extremely thick cut and we don't like them very pink in the middle. Let rest for approximately 10 minutes. Enjoy! I served these with Whole Foods Asparagus and Roasted Veggie Salad.
