Basil-Garlic Grilled Pork Chops

In preparation for the whole pig we recently purchased, we have been trying new pork chop recipes. If you like limes and basil you need to try this recipe.

Basil-Garlic Grilled Pork Chops

  • 4 (8 ounce) pork chops
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • salt and black pepper to taste

Toss the pork chops with the lime juice in a bowl until evenly covered.
Toss with garlic and basil. Season the chops to taste with salt and pepper.
Set aside to marinate for 30 minutes.

Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat, and lightly oil the grate.
Cook the pork chops on the preheated grill until no longer pink in
the center, 5 to 10 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer
inserted into the center should read 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

Cook's Notes:
We like limes so I juiced two limes for this recipe. Also, I placed the marinade and the piggies in a zip-lok bag and marinated the chops over night. The chops were nothing short of delicious.
