Today I thought I'd share another recent summer recipe we tried. We have a fabulous herb garden in our backyard, and with all the rain we have had the herbs are a plenty. So, we decided to harvest some of our basil for this one.
Lemon Basil Grilled Pork Chops
4 thick-cut, boneless pork loin chops
2 TBS olive oil
1 C fresh basil leaves, minced
3 TBS minced garlic
3 TBS lemon juice
1 tsp sea salt
3/4 tsp pepper
1. Add olive oil, basil, garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper to a bowl and mix well.
2. Spread both sides of the pork chops with the mixture and let the chops set for about 20 minutes.
3. Grill chops over direct heat for about 5-6 minutes per side or until the internal temperature reaches at least 145 degrees.
4. Let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
We served alongside fresh cut green beans and rice.
