  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh basil

  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh rosemary

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • Zest of 1 lemon

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Steps to Make It

  2. Preheat grill for medium high heat.

  3. Place chops on grill and cook for about 5 to 7 minutes per side or until temperature reaches between 145 to 155 F.

  4. Once cooked to desired doneness, remove chops from grill. Tent with foil and let meat rest for 5 minutes. Serve with grilled vegetables or your favorite side dishes. 

  5. Enjoy!
