These pork chops are marinated in a flavorful citrus-herb marinade. Be sure to grill them hot and fast. If you have thicker pork chops, grill them just as hot, but for a longer amount of time than thinner pork chops.

What You'll Need

  • 8 1/2-inch thick pork chops
  • 1/2 cup/120 mL fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons/30 mL olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon/15 mL fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon/15 mL grated orange peel
  • 1 tablespoon/15 mL grated lemon peel
  • 1 teaspoon/5 mL sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon/2.5 mL dry oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon/2.5 mL black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon/2.5 mL salt

How to Make It

  1. Mix together parsley, garlic, oil, rosemary, orange and lemon peel, sugar, oregano, salt, and pepper.
  2. Spread mixture over each chop, cover and refrigerate for 4-24 hours.
  3. Preheat grill as hot as it will go.
  4. Using either a table knife or spoon, remove as much of the marinade from the chops as you can and grill pork chops for 2-3 minutes on each side.
  5. Once chops reach an internal temperature between 145-150 degrees F, remove from heat and let rest for a few minutes.
  1. Serve with your favorite sides.
