Summer Grilled Pork Chops
This dish is what summer and grilling are all about...sweet honey-grilled pork chops are always an entertaining hit.
- Serves: 4 persons
- 1½ cups lemon juice
- 1½ cups honey
- 2tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1clove garlic, minced
- ¼teaspoon dried basil
- 4center-cut pork chops, 1/2-inch thick
- salt and ground black pepper to taste
Step 1Mix the lemon juice, honey, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, and basil together in a bowl. Pour about half the marinade into a resealable plastic zipper bag, and place the pork chops in the bag. Squeeze out the air, seal the bag, and refrigerate for at least 2 hours (overnight is best). Refrigerate remaining marinade for basting.
Step 2Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate.
Step 3Remove the chops from the bag, and discard the used marinade. Sprinkle chops with salt and black pepper. Grill the chops until browned and the meat is no longer pink inside, 20 to 25 minutes. Baste frequently with the reserved marinade, being sure to let the mixture cook onto the chops. An instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the center of a chop should read at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).
