The recipe for the Grilled Lemon Herb Pork Chops is from AllRecipes, courtesy of Doreenbuch. They were so simple! What I loved best about the recipe is that I had everything already in the pantry, including fresh lemons for the marinade.
1/4 cup lemon juice – I used fresh lemons
2 tbsp. canola oil
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. oregano
1/4 tsp. pepper
4 chopsCombine lemon juice, oil, garlic, oregano and salt and pepper in a large resealable bag. Add the chops. Seal and refrigerate overnight or at least two hours. I let my chops marinate for around six hours. Turn bag occasionally so that the marinade flavors all of the chops.Preheat the grill outside. The original recipe said to keep the marinade and boil it, so that you can baste the chops as they grill. I didn’t do this.I wanted potatoes to go along with the chops, and wasn’t sure how long it would take them to get finished, so I cheated and used my microwave. I scrubbed a couple of potatoes and poked them and then microwaved them for about five minutes. Then, I sliced them, spritzed them with canola oil and tossed them onto the grill with the chops. It took about 10 minutes per side to cook the chops. The taters were pretty well cooked but I wanted them to get the charcoal flavor and grill marks. One potato tried to commit suicide by diving into the charcoal but I rescued it and ate it.Yum – I served the chops and taters with applesauce. Next time, we need more taters. You can never have too many taters.Deliciously smoky-flavored chops and potatoes. I am really loving this grilling. What I want is to find a really, really good cook book on grilling. Any ideas?
