Did you ever have one of those days where nothing goes right? Yesterday was one of THOSE days. I was all ready to get our grill started to grill pork chops and of course when I went to light it, it only “clicked, clicked, clicked”….GREAT. Now to switch gears and cook them inside. I also was making a box of mac & cheese for my kids and while I was draining it, the bottom of the lid slid out of the pot and all the pasta ended up in the sink. Needless to say, I was about ready to throw in the towel and order pizza. Later I found out that it was National Kitchen Klutzies Day….I think that explains it all!
Anyways, these pork chops were delicious. The lemon flavor was subtle and the marinade made them moist and not dried out. It was definitely a hit with me and my husband – my kids…not so much. Oh well, more for leftovers and to make these again when I get our grill working.
4 boneless pork chops
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 cup fresh basil leaves, minced
3 Tbsp minced garlic
3 Tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 tsp sea salt
3/4 tsp fresh ground pepper
In a plastic bag, combine the oil, garlic, basil, lemon juice and salt and pepper. Add in the pork chops. Coat the pork chops with the marinade and let sit for 20 to 30 minutes. Heat a skillet over medium high heat. Cook on each side for 5 to 6 minutes or until the chops are just about cooked through. Remove from the pan and allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving.
